Getting the 2020 season underway remains the current primary focus for everyone involved with MLB. It’s a complicated process, one which will likely get heated in the coming weeks.
Once everything is agreed upon, and questions about when the season will start and how it’ll look are resolved, teams can begin addressing some of their own more pressing matters for the year ahead.
For the Cleveland Indians, one of these is figuring out what to do with top prospect Nolan Jones.
Cleveland is set to have a vacancy in its infield next year, one which seems tailor-made for Jones. That said, he could still use a little more seasoning in the minors. With the fate of MiLB looking grim, this is something he unfortunately may not receive this summer.
Knowing that, the Indians need to figure out a way to ensure Jones’ development isn’t put on hiatus in 2020.
