In perhaps the most significant move of the 2020 MLB Trade Deadline, the Cleveland Indians sent shockwaves around the baseball world as they traded starting pitcher Mike Clevinger and outfielder Greg Allen to the San Diego Padres for six players, including both major league talent and big-name prospects.
The Indians acquired outfielder Josh Naylor, catcher Austin Hedges and relief pitcher Cal Quantrill who were all in the majors with the Padres while also adding prospects Gabriel Arias, Joey Cantillo and Owen Miller.
While the Indians lost their No. 2 starter, this deal is expected to help them both in the short term and long term and there has been much praise for the haul Cleveland general manager Mike Chernoff and his staff were able to real in.
With six new faces joining the Indians organization, here’s a closer look at each player and their future in Cleveland.
