"I should be able to start Spring Training with everybody else," LaPorta said. "I'll have another checkup with my doctors right before [Spring Training] to make sure I'm 100 percent. I'm on a good pace." Once he resumes baseball activities, it should be come clearer if he's actually going to be 100 percent by Opening Day, or if the Indians will have to look to Austin Kearns or Shelley Duncan as a temporary option to fill in for LaPorta during the early weeks of the regular season.
