The Cleveland Indians have had rough luck in the outfield so far this year, as far as injuries and suspensions go. Starting LF Michael Brantley has missed most of this season as he continues to recover from shoulder surgery. Projected starting CF Abraham Almonte was suspended right before the 2016 season for 80 games due to failing a drug test for PEDs. He has just returned to action. Then Marlon Byrd was suspended for 162 games this year due to him failing the second PED test of his career! So there have been a lot of ABs for outfielders to gobble up for the Indians and three guys have really stepped up their games so far in 2016. 23-year old switch-hitting Jose Ramirez has been playing a lot at 3B and in the outfield so far this year despite being a natural middle infielder. His defense gets better every day and he has been very productive at the plate for the Tribe. Ramirez has played in 76 games for the Indians so far this year and he is 81 of 270 (.300 avg, .790 OPS) with 42 runs scored, 4 homers, 34 RBIs and 10 stolen bases. 25-year old lefty swinging outfielder Tyler Naquin came into this season as the Indians’ #6 prospect according to Baseball America. Naquin has been showing people so far why he was so highly thought of. He has played in 55 games for the Indians so far this year and he is 47 of 147 (.320 avg, .961 OPS) with 24 runs scored, 7 homers, 19 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Naquin also has an amazing 5 triples already this year! Naquin has whiffed 49 times against 14 walks so far this year, so it’s doubtful that he can keep up the batting average he is putting up right now. 27-year old lefty swinging RF Lonnie Chisenhall started the 2016 season on the D.L., but he is making up for lost time. He has played in 61 games so far this year for the Tribe and he is 61 of 199 (.307 avg, .832 OPS) with 25 runs scored, 5 homers, 26 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. The Indians need this trio to keep up the good work in the second half of the 2016 season.
