1B,LF,DH - CLE
Jake Bauers did not make the Indians' Opening Day roster and was assigned to the team's alternate training site.
Bauers, along with teammates James Hoyt, Jefry Rodriguez, and Hunter Wood did not make the Indians' final roster. They will all serve as organizational depth as the regular season begins for the Tribe on Friday. Bauers had some hype building going into the 2019 season but failed to live up to it, logging a disappointing .226/.312/.371 triple slash line. He's still just 24-years old and not worth writing off yet but not making the final roster this year is a developmental setback to say the least.
