CLEVELAND -- One month from now, the Indians' pitchers and catchers will hold their first official spring workout at the team's complex in Goodyear, Ariz. Spring Training games will be right around the corner, giving fans their first look at a team aiming for a third straight American League Central title.

That quest will begin on Feb. 23, when the Indians take on the Reds in their first Cactus League clash of 2018. That game will be televised on SportsTime Ohio, along with nine others during the spring, as part of the Spring Training broadcast slate that was announced by the Indians on Tuesday.
