18. Cleveland Indians

Corey Kluber was the story of the Indians in 2014. The Cy Young winner was superb, going 18-9 with a 2.44 ERA. The Indians couldn’t generate much else however, outside of Michael Brantley’s breakout numbers (.327/.385/.506). Nick Swisher has steadily declined, and Jason Kipnis just struggles to stay on the field. Adding Brandon Moss was a solid decision, and his presence will help anchor the lineup, but the Indians need Swisher to improve and Kipnis to stay on the field. Adding a solid number two starter would also greatly improve the Indians and help them stay afloat in the ultra-competitive AL Central.

    How do you not mention Justin Morneau in the Rockies section when you talk about how much talent they have? He just won the batting title…
