If there’s a baseball season this summer, it’s safe to assume it’ll come with a glaring lack of normalcy.
Fans in the stands. Teams playing in their home parks. A 162-game campaign in general.
Almost everyone around MLB has accepted the fact these aspects of a normal season will mostly be scrapped this summer.
Obviously, these wouldn’t be the only adjustments to navigate through. An abbreviated schedule will force all clubs to reevaluate their original plans for 2020, with roster experiments likely being shelved in order to prioritize a strong start to the shortened season.
For the Cleveland Indians, this could mean putting a pause on their attempt to make Jordan Luplow an everyday outfielder.
