Let’s talk about the future of the Cleveland Indians

Minor League Baseball: Arizona Fall League-Peoria Javelinas at Glendale Desert Dogs

I am now working on the Washington Nationals Top 20 prospects for 2018 list. The next team in line is the Cleveland Indians, to be followed by the San Diego Padres, Boston Red Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Seattle Mariners , Miami Marlins, and the Baltimore Orioles.

Use this thread to discuss the Cleveland Indians organization. Some possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:

****The Indians finished at 102-60, first place in the American League Central Division, obviously an outstanding season despite falling short of the World Series. What do you anticipate for 2018? 90 wins? 95? 100? Or will they fall back considerably further?

****Projected slash line for Bradley Zimmer?

****Yandy Diaz is something of a fan favorite around here at Minor League Ball. What do you think of him now? Will any home run power come?

****I think we talk about Trevor Bauer every year in the organization discussion, asking if he ever becomes a true ace. Let’s talk about it again.

****I think Triston McKenzie is a remarkable young pitcher. What do you think?

****What would happen if you gave Bobby Bradley 500 at-bats in the major leagues in 2018?

****As always, feel free to discuss sleeper prospects or anything else Indians-oriented.
