John Axford hopes to rebound from a tough 2013 season after discovering a mechanical issue that caused him to tip his pitches to opposing hitters, MLB.com reports.

Axford will be competing for the Indians closer role with spring, and has the most experience out of all the other contenders. The Indians signed him to be there closer this winter, but he is going to have to prove he can still get the job done at this level, after blowing a combined 16 saves over the last two seasons. If he locks down the job this spring, he is worth adding in the later rounds of this year's drafts.
