Bradley Zimmer could make Indians’ OD roster | MLB.com

“Is he the best option?” does not sound like an ringing endorsement.

Cleveland’s financial resources appear to be tapped out for major additions, but the team could still use help for the outfield. Maybe that will lend itself to this bold prediction: Top prospect Bradley Zimmer will make the Opening Day roster.

“There may be an opportunity for Bradley at some point,” Chris Antonetti, the Indians’ president of baseball operations, said last week. “The question is, ‘Is he the best option for us, and does he take advantage of it?’”

...This is a situation like the Cubs' handling of Kris Bryant in 2015, yes, where if they just keep him in AAA for the first 10 games or so of the 2017 season, they can delay his free agency by an extra year, yes?

Because if that's the case it would seem monumentally stupid for any team ever to allow a highly-touted prospect to make his Major League debut on opening day.
