Projected 2017 Cleveland Indians Organizational Depth Chart

A projected depth chart to start the 2017 season for the Cleveland Indians organization from Cleveland down to Low-A Lake County and extended spring training...

Here is the Cleveland Indians depth chart for the 2017 season and where players are "projected" to be assigned from Cleveland all the way down to extended spring training.  We will continue to update this listing as moves are made this offseason and during spring training with the addition and subtraction of players from the organization.

This is a projection based on some insight into where guys will be assigned, but as always, these are not concrete and subject to change. One free agent signing or trade could create a domino effect and result in a few players moving down a level. Also, injuries incurred during spring training can impact not only where that injured player starts the year, but could open the door for another player to make a roster that they otherwise would not have made.

Note, players with a (+) are in a projected piggyback starting situation. A piggyback situation is where two starters split a game with one going five innings to start the game and the other going four innings to finish it, and then the next time out the starter who finished the game gets to start and goes five innings, etc. Also, the (*) means the pitcher is left-handed.
