Yes, it’s early.
Yes, it’s only one series, which took place against the less than imposing bats of the Kansas City Royals.
Still, entering the 2020 season, there was a notable amount of uncertainty hovering over the Cleveland Indians’ bullpen. With that in mind, it was important for this unit to mitigate any concerns as early as possible.
Barring a couple hiccups here and there, Cleveland’s relievers were able to do just that. While there’s still work to be done when it comes to earning trust, the Indians’ relief corps opened this season on the right foot.
