Brown, Grilli injured

It didn’t take long for bad news to arrive at Indians spring training camp.

Just prior to Cleveland’s exhibition opener against the Reds at Goodyear Ballpark, first baseman/outfielder Jordan Brown and relief pitcher Jason Grilli suffered right knee injuries and were both taken off the field in carts.

Both players will undergo MRIs today with head trainer Lonnie Soloff providing updates Saturday.
