6 Prospects Cleveland Indians could Trade to Upgrade Roster

5.) 1B Bobby Bradley (No. 3 prospect)

Bobby Bradley is interesting because Cleveland has a big decision on the future at 1B/DH. Edwin Encarnacion is signed through 2019 and best projects as a DH.

Carlos Santana is a free agent after the season and has struggled so far hitting just .238 with 10 home runs. With Cleveland likely to let him hit the market and Bradley not being ready until some point during next season at the earliest, do they sign someone to a one year deal to play first next year until Bradley is ready or do they go out and add a first baseman and move Bradley?

If they move Bradley someone is going to get a big bat because that is what he is. In his two full seasons in the minors he has hit 27 and 29 home runs respectively. He has added another 17 in Akron this season.

He does need to cut down the strikeouts with 438 strikeouts in 371 games but he does offer that game changing power from a big first baseman.
