The Indians made it clear with their 2020 Draft selection as to who they feel is their shortstop of the future.
Shortstop: Carson Tucker
With Lindor all but guaranteed to be traded this offseason, the Indians wisely selected his future replacement in Carson Tucker in the first round of the 2020 Draft.
Tucker is the brother of Pirates infielder Cole Tucker and fellow first-round pick and became a star at Mountain Pointe High School in Arizona, leading to his selection and turning down the chance to play college baseball at Texas.
MLB Pipeline projects Tucker will be MLB ready in 2024, which would put him in line to the Indians 2025 Opening Day shortstop.
