We’re a little over a month away from the Cleveland Indians’ first game of spring training, and their outfield still looks pretty dire. There are multiple options to work with, sure, but few inspire confidence.
Some have been unable to consistently prove themselves in the big leagues (Greg Allen, Bradley Zimmer).
Some impress at the plate but not so much at defense (Franmil Reyes).
Some received ample opportunity last year despite doing everything in their power to prove it wasn’t deserved (Jake Bauers).
And then there’s Daniel Johnson.
