We’re now one step closer to going wheels-up on the 2020 baseball season.
With Spring Training: The Sequel set to begin later this week, all MLB teams were asked to submit their respective 60-man player pools Sunday afternoon. This pool includes each team’s 40-man roster, as well as 20 other players who’ll transition to an alternate training site.
For the most part, there aren’t too many surprises on the Cleveland Indians’ active roster. Likewise, fans should recognize several of the Tribe’s top prospects within the list of off-site players. Really, the only surprise was that Cleveland left five spots open, opting for a 55-man player pool to start spring training.
With the official list submitted, let’s dive through it and address some of the key talking points we’ll be focusing on in the year ahead. Keep in mind, while Cleveland will open the season with an active roster of 30 players, it gets trimmed twice in the span of a month. After two weeks, the roster shrinks to 28 players, and then down to 26 two weeks after that.
