Three Cleveland Indians pitching prospects who could surprise in 2021.

With position players reporting over the weekend, the Cleveland Indians have officially begun spring training in Goodyear, Ariz.

Over the course of the next six seeks, Tribe manager Terry Francona will have a lot to sort out as the organization builds its roster for 2021.

The organization will be carried by MVP candidate Jose Ramirez on offense, while reigning Cy Young winner Shanie Bieber anchors the rotation.

The outfield, a personnel mess since Michael Brantley departed after 2018, got a little easier to figure out with the addition of Eddie Rosario in free agency. Even with his addition, there’s still a huge mess to sort out.

And with the Indians done spending for the year, then organization will have to look for internal options to improve the club throughout the year, unless they pull off a trade.

That means we’ll be prospect watching, which is a good thing, since we were unable to do so last season with the cancellation of the minor-league season.

Here’s three prospects that are flying under the radar who might make an impact this season. Additionally, Andres Gimenez (22) his still considered a prospect, but you won’t find him here. He finished the year starting for the Mets.

He would have to be a total mess this spring not to open the season with the Tribe. If management sends him to Columbus, we should all be offended.
