Late Saturday the Indians added another piece to an outfield in flux, as the team came to terms on a minor league deal with former Colorado Rockies right fielder Carlos Gonzalez.
The deal is pending a physical, and the Indians even gave Gonzalez an early opt-out clause, but if things go the way the Tribe is hoping, it certainly appears that he could be the starter come opening day in right field for the team.
It’s been an interesting offseason for the Indians as fans complained about the payroll slashing, but in the end the team has put together an outfield they think can do enough to compete and put them in a position to be successful once again as they make a run at a fourth straight AL Central title in 2019.
As it stands, the team still has decisions to make in the outfield, here’s the way things seem to be shaping up and how it might all play out once the team takes the field for real in Minnesota for the first time in just over a week.
