The Indians have had an obvious plan of attack this off-season, and it revolves around finding guys who know how to get on base.
The Cleveland Indians offseason has featured a bevy of moves. No, they haven’t dealt away a frontline starter. On the contrary, they have shipped out a handful of aging well-knowns for a mixed bag of major league talent and prospects. Out are Yan Gomes, Edwin Encarnacion, Yonder Alonso, and Yandy Diaz. In are Daniel Johnson, Jefry Rodriguez, Andruw Monasterio, Carlos Santana (hello, old friend), Jake Bauers, and Alex Call. Only two of the previously mentioned names are locks to be a prominent part of the Indians 2019 pennant chase, yet one or two more may surface as options throughout the campaign.
