  1. I don’t see this as what the Indians would be looking for in a Lindor trade.

    • Jaron Richman

      I figured it gave them some outfield help from the left side, Greene will be up in 3-4 years after their current rotation is gone, and India can be a utility player in the next year or two until he finds a home somewhere on the infield. Hilliard is also big league ready, and the Indians are somewhat weak in the outfield

  2. The Indians are looking for MLB ready players with upside. Winker and Hilliard do not have the upside needed. Cleveland has a outfield prospect Daniel Johnson who reached AAA last season successfully and should help in 2020. I don’t see Winker or Hilliard as meeting their biggest need.

    Cleveland ‘s top prospect Nolan Jones, like India, is a third baseman and is rated higher by You have the Indians trading two pitching prospects for one. Logan Allen is near ready and could help if needed in 2020. Espino, who have the Indians trading in this deal, was their first round draft choice in 2019 and should be in their next wave of pitchers. So Greene and India, though interesting, don’t fit the Indians biggest need.

    A Lindor trade opens up an additional need for another infielder for 2020 until Jones and Tyler Freeman, their #3 prospect is ready. They already need one infielder to replace Jason Kipnis. Trading Lindor, without getting another mlb ready infielder in return, does not help the Indians.

    If the Indians trade Lindor, the return has to help meet the biggest needs of the Indians. Your offer does not do that in my opinion.

  3. I just read an article by Rotoballer ranking the top 10 third base prospects. Cleveland’s Nolan Jones was #2. Jonathan India just missed the top 10.
