Three surprising prospects who could debut in 2021 for the Cleveland Indians

The Cleveland Indians have been few moves this offseason, but the ones they have made have rocked the fan base and the organization to its core. The hidden gem free agent find from a year ago is still without a contract on the market in Cesar Hernandez. The face of the franchise in Francisco Lindor is now a member of the New York Mets. Fan favorites in Carlos Santana and Carlos Carrasco will play elsewhere in 2021. To top it all off, the Indians moniker will be replaced following the 2021 season.

With all the changes that have occurred, we’re now anticipating the next wave of baseball lore in Cleveland to begin. While the official start of the next leg of Cleveland baseball won’t happen for another year, we might get a small taste of what’s on the horizon.

There are a handful of players that are expected to play in 2021 that haven’t been in the big leagues much, at least to this point. Players like Nolan Jones, Bobby Bradley and Daniel Johnson are sure to get a shot, but what about the players that could be a bit more of a surprise or a September call up?

Given the outlook of the roster for the Cleveland Indians there is a high likelihood that multiple players will be given that shot to show what they can do in the majors. For that reason we could see players upon players making their debut this season, especially if more trades occur, injuries happen or the misfortunes that struck teams during 2020 happen again.
