With MLB playoffs right around the corner, clubs are working to finalize two different rosters.
The first is an updated 12-man taxi squad. This group of players will be confined within the postseason bubble along with those on the active roster, ready to step in should a rash of injuries occur in October.
The Cleveland Indians assembled their final group Monday. The players included will remain in Lake County until Wednesday before heading to Progressive Field the following day.
Not all of those left off the list will be sent home, though.
Cleveland has begun tabbing prospects to head to Phoenix for fall instructional programs. 50 players will take part in a month-long session, which involves playing games against other big league clubs.
With that out of the way, let’s take a look at who the Indians included on their taxi squad, and who they’ll be sending to Arizona for additional work this fall.
