As the 2016 MLB season draws near, we know you have fantasy baseball yearnings that need to be satisfied. As do we. So, in the best interest of us both, we at Fantasy Sports Today decided to invite 30 baseball writers from all 30 MLB cities to break-down their respective teams. It’s our 2016 MLB Season Preview. We’ll be going team-by-team, division-by-division to try and give you insight into all the position battles and roster shuffling as April approaches with some of the best minds in the baseball world.

T.J. Zuppe of 92.3 The Fan joins Garion Thorne to talk the 2016 Cleveland Indians, who, according to metrics, disappointed quite a bit last season. Can Francisco Lindor carry over the surprising power he showed in the second half of his rookie campaign? What’s a realistic timeline for the mysterious return of star Michael Brantley and how tied is Rajai Davis‘ fate to the left fielder? Will Yan Gomes put an injury-plagued season behind him and get back to the 2014 version of himself? Finally, is it time to give up on the dream of third overall pick Trevor Bauer?
