We take one final look back at all the players drafted by the Cleveland Indians last week as part of the 2018 MLB Draft.
The 2018 MLB Draft wrapped us last week and we did our best to cover the major players taken by the Cleveland Indians.
But with so many picks, it is nice to see a comprehensive list of all the names. Call to the Pen provides just that with an article detailing the picks made by every MLB team.
From Noah Naylor to Braxton Cottongame, the Indians drafted players all over the diamond with a specific focus on pitching. The author of this article, Benjamin Chase, provides fans with a look at all the players taken.
I’d recommend that Indians fans look over this list because at least a few of the young men listed will be playing for the Indians in several years, barring the worst draft of all time. The Indians have a lot of homegrown players on the roster right now and that will hopefully continue with this draft class taking roster spots once the current group ages with several World Series titles to their name.
The fact most fans don’t watch or follow the draft shows just how far the league has to go to make it a big event. It doesn’t have to be the spectacle that the NFL Draft is, but MLB should at least try to make it a primetime event that doesn’t start on a Monday.
A lot of money is handed out and teams are making big investments in these young men to become future stars in the league. So as I said, be sure to look over the list of Indians draft picks. You may end up cheering on one or more of these players in just a few years.
