From Mandy Bell:

There’s no secret that the Indians have a glutton of outfielders, boasting 10 on their 40-man roster. All of them have reported to Progressive Field, looking to fight for their spots on the 30-man.

Center fielder Oscar Mercado is the only guarantee at this point. Without a doubt, assuming he’s healthy, he’ll be in the starting lineup at the end of the month. However, the corners aren’t so simple. Of the nine remaining outfielders, Tyler Naquin, Jordan Luplow, Franmil Reyes and Domingo Santana are the most likely to land a starting job in either corner.
