The Indians have plenty of players inked for the future, but some players are for sure on the bubble as the 2014 season gets rolling. Here are five who could find their way onto other rosters by the trade deadline or season's end.
Is he a starter, or is he better from the pen? That's the question the Indians have to deal with when it comes to Carrasco, who is the last piece of the Cliff Lee trade with the Phillies a few years back. The team has tried more than once to see him as a starter, and it seems like it's a lost cause.
Raburn was a tremendous part of the 2013 run to the playoffs, but it seems right now he's out of the mix for playing time, as he's been on the bench a lot more than many thought through the first 16 games of 2014. He could bring some value to a team that needs a decent outfielder.
Chisenhall has gotten off to a great start in 2014, but with Carlos Santana looking like the piece at third base moving forward, Chisenhall could prove to have value on the market for a team looking for still a young prospect. The question is, what is he worth?
The Indians tried during the spring to get their ace signed to a contract, but couldn't ink a deal, meaning he's a free agent after the 2014 season. Masterson has been OK to start the year, but on the open market, he is going to price himself out of Cleveland, which is why he will be mentioned for a deal.
The Indians have their shortstop of the future in Double-A ball right now in Francisco Lindor, which means Cabrera is as good as gone after the 2014 season, but he could have some decent trade value at still a player who is under 30 and could play the position every day for a contender.
