The Arizona League Indians, formerly the Gulf Coast League (GCL) Indians, are a minor league baseball team in Goodyear, Arizona. They are a Rookie-level team in the Arizona League that began play as a Cleveland Indians affiliate in the summer of 2009. The AZL Indians play home games at Goodyear Ballpark.

With the announcement of the big league club moving their spring training headquarters from Winter Haven, Florida to Goodyear, Arizona beginning in 2009, the former GCL Indians headed to the Arizona League for the 2009 season.

As of the 2019 season, the Indians operate two Arizona League clubs: AZL Indians 1 (designated the "Red" squad) and AZL Indians 2 (designated the "Blue" squad).
