    This is where we will discuss those young cats who are playing out their last year or two of guaranteed contracts before they get that first fat pay raise (either through arby or team extension).

    Cleveland Indians:

    This young man is the cornerstone of the #TeePeeTankJob. Once a kid who may have been rushed into the big leagues, the Californian seems to have finally caught stride in Cleveland currently hitting at a .278/.330/.411 slash (prior to today's sim). Had the Indians not let Carlos Santana go to the New York Mets, somehow this 5 tool player would have completely fallen out of the first round. The Tribe were more than willing to snatch him up in the supplemental picks of the first round. The Tribe now face a tough decision as Markus isn't shy to express his monetary value to the team and expects a "heavy cheddah" extension when the time comes. As a small market franchise, the Indians may not have the funds to keep their star outfielder. Not to mention, General Manager Justin Jones is extremely gun shy to pay out large contracts after the catastrophe that is known as the Asdrubal Cabrera extension.
