30. Indians OF Bradley Zimmer
Injuries have sapped this one great prospect of hype, but the potential remains as Bradley Zimmer looks to once again assert his name into discussions for the Tribes starting outfield positions.
29. Browns CEN JC Tretter
Not the sexiest name on this list, but J.C. Tretter has proven to be reliable and every bit as viable as some of the other Browns on this list.
28. Indians 1B/OF Framil Reyes
Fans like home runs. They like big, looping swings. They like watching balls fly out of stadiums like a spaceship breaching orbit. That’s why they love Framil Reyes.
27. Cavaliers SG/SF Kevin Porter Jr.
While he takes a lot of shots and may not play well off the ball yet, Kevin Porter Jr. was barely a first-round draft pick in the 2019 NBA Draft and is playing like a lottery pick for the rebuilding Cavs.
26. Browns LB Mack Wilson
Expectations are high for Mack Wilson to step up and replace one of the two former starters in this new era of Browns football. The 5th round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft had 82 combined tackles in his rookie season.
25. Browns CB Greedy Williams
The second-round pick in the same draft had a good rookie season as well but was inconsistent at times. Optimism for his growth is high, despite rookie year growing pains.
24. Indians OF Tyler Naquin
Under-appreciated by the club but a grinder of a player. Has shown to have great defensive skills, and a solid .280 average when given the chance to play full time. Should be a starter for the 2020 Cleveland Indians.
23. Indians CL Brad Hand
Brad Hand is an All-Star closer for the Cleveland Indians, earning his third visit to the Mid-Summer Classic in his first full year with the Indians in 2019. Has quickly become a popular player for the reloading Tribe.
22. Browns DT Larry Ogunjobi
Had the Browns not foolishly traded Jabrill Peppers, then three of the teams 11 starters on defense in 2019 and 2020 would have been from the 2017 NFL Draft, with Larry Ogunjobi being one of the more surprising and consistent players from that classes’ later rounds.
21. Cavaliers C/PF Tristan Thompson
A double-double sixth man for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Tristan Thompson became more famous for his love life than his skills as a former number four overall NBA Draft selection. A career revival in 2020 has re-submitted Thompson as a viable defensive centerpiece.
