Last season, Cleveland set a record of 35-25 during an MLB season, which was cut to 60 games due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Indians’ 2020 season was their eighth consecutive winning season under manager Terry Francona and their fourth postseason appearance in the past five years. Cleveland’s season ended with a two-game game against the New York Yankees in the American League Wild Card round.

This season, the Indian roster will look a little different from previous seasons. Cleveland swapped star shortstop Francisco Lindor and started pitcher Carlos Carrasco for the New York Mets. You can see the full planned starting lineups for the Indians for the 2021 campaign Here.
