Cervantes was a mid-season pickup last year after serving his 30-day suspension after transferring. Cervantes was an immediate offensive contributor with a .420 average and 15 RBI. Cervantes has gap power evidenced by his 7 doubles and one home run, and should be a major RBI contributor in 2017. Cervantes has the speed and throwing arm to play right field, and he has also thrown innings in the fall on the mound. Cervantes arm strength could close games for the Indians this spring.
