CLEVELAND, Ohio — Perhaps the biggest question facing the Cleveland Indians as they construct their roster for 2019 is what the outfield will look like by the time opening day rolls around.
Center fielder Bradley Zimmer is still recovering from shoulder surgery and can’t be counted on until later in the year. Michael Brantley and Lonnie Chisenhall are free agents and could be out of the picture.
That leaves a colorful cast of options including veteran Jason Kipnis, who moved to center field at the end of the last two seasons, most recently to accommodate Josh Donaldson at third base.
In this week’s podcast, cleveland.com Indians beat writers Paul Hoynes and Joe Noga also answer reader questions about trading Trevor Bauer (wait, what?), eliminating the “win” as a baseball statistic, and whatever happened to Brady Aiken?
