CLEVELAND  — According to multiple reports, Indians officials have discussed July 1 as a possible target date to start the season.

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported that the Cleveland Indians have told players July 1 is a "mark in the sand" for Opening Day, but said there are no firm plans at this time.

Rosenthal said the Tribe told players to be prepared for Spring Training 2.0 starting June 10.

Former Major League player Trevor Plouffe said he's already heard from players that they are gearing for a July 1 start date.

The MLB season was put on hold due to coronavirus concerns.

News 5 reached out to the Indians, but they have no comment.
