The Cleveland Indians‘ youth movement is officially under way.
After struggling to find opportunities early on in the season, outfielders Greg Allen and Oscar Mercado are now starting to get everyday playing time. The initial returns have been positive, as each player has provided some solid contributions at the plate over the past week.
While this marks a potentially exciting time for the Indians, it also comes at a cost for a team which has always valued veteran leadership. Specifically, this youth movement should indicate Leonys Martin‘s time with the Tribe will soon be coming to an end
