WFNY’s Mike Hattery draws out a road map for the Cleveland Indians to follow as a guide to future World Series beyond 2018.
The lukewarm stove heated up a bit on Wednesday afternoon. Rumors circulated that the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox had discussed a deal in the framework of Edwin Encarnacion in exchange for Jackie Bradley Jr. WFNY’s own Joe Gerberry took a dive into that topic yesterday. Essentially, the Indians were interested in trading an aging above average hitting DH on a mediocre contract for a plus-plus defensive outfielder with an up and down hitting resume. Though Bradley Jr. has more upside than Encarnacion from a value perspective, the focal point of the trade seemed to be monetary.
We know that Chris Antonetti has come out and said that Cleveland is pretty much out of the market for any more free agents, having spent what little money they have on the Michael Brantley option and signing free agent Elevation Revelation connoisseur Yonder Alonso. That doesn’t mean we can’t speculate what can happen in
The Indians remain quiet on the free agent front, and while they’re not likely to make a splash, Lorenzo Cain would be the type of impact player that would be a perfect target.
