Time flies when you’re having fun, does it not? In just a few days time on October 5th, your Cleveland Indians will be starting their run back to the World Series. It seems like just yesterday when we huddled around our TV screens on April 3rd to watch the World Series runner-up Cleveland Indians. A squad that had a productive offseason by adding a few exciting pieces. Of course, none more notable than slugger Edwin Encarnacion, a player who shows the parrot more than 40 times a year.

Now, with only a week or so left to go in the season, the Indians are poised for another deep playoff run. After injuries, changes, and additions, what could the 25 man roster look like for the playoffs?

Potential 25 Man Roster:

(* = Starters)

Infielders:

#12 Francisco Lindor-SS *

#11 Jose Ramirez- 2B *

#41 Carlos Santana- 1B *

#39 Giovanny Urshela- 3B *

As it currently stands, this is all just speculation. As you may have noticed, pitching is very deep (as it should be in the playoffs). This postseason will be an exciting one for the Tribe, and as fans, we should all be locked in and pumped for this. Of course, as always, Go Tribe!
