One player that majority of people with the Cleveland Indians wanted to see pan out is Bradley Zimmer, but injuries have plagued his career and he could be left on the outside looking in because of it.
During the 2020 season, Zimmer played in 20 games and he had his moments, but when the dust settled, he was just another name in the mix of the Indians’ outfield. Having played just nine game in 2019 and 34 in 2018, Cleveland might be losing patience with Zimmer.
Zimmer will be 28-years old when the 2021 season begins and still has plenty of team control left, making him an intriguing player for teams around the league. There’s no question that Zimmer had potential coming up through the minors, it just hasn’t clicked for him in the majors yet.
Perhaps a change in scenery is what Zimmer needs. The reality is that Cleveland has just brought injuries to his career. He showed flashes during the 2017 season and again at times during the 2020 season. Maybe there’s a team that sees that and wants to try and harness that potential.
Like Bauers, the road for Zimmer in Cleveland seems to have been given a dead end. Should the right offer come over the phone, Zimmer is another player that could be suiting up for a different city in 2021.
