The Cleveland Indians decided to sign a bevy of free agents last winter, spending $17.25 million bucks on four guys instead of one big name player! The results were outstanding! 34-year old righty swinging 1B Mike Napoli has turned in a monster year for the Indians power wise, which was why they signed him. He was signed to a 1-year, $7 million dollar deal last winter and the Tribe will have to ante up this winter if they want to keep him. Napoli has played in 147 games for the Tribe so far this year and he is 132 of 545 (.242 avg, .811 OPS) with 92 runs scored, 34 homers, 101 RBI and 5 stolen bases. Those runs scored, homers and RBI are new career highs for Napoli. Now he has whiffed 191 times so far this year, but he has also walked 76 times. The Indians don’t mind the whiffing as long as it came with all of those homers and RBI! 35-year old righty swinging outfielder Rajai Davis signed a 1-year, $5.25 million dollar with the Tribe last winter. He had a rough time defensively early in the year for the Tribe, but he has played well in the field the last five months for them! Davis has played in 131 games for the Indians so far this year and he is 113 of 445 (.254 avg, .705 OPS) with 73 runs scored, 12 homers, 48 RBI and a American League leading 42 stolen bases! Davis has set new career highs in both runs scored and homers for the Tribe in 2016! 37-year old righty swinging Juan Uribe played decent defensively, but he didn’t hit a lick for the Indians, leading to his release. Uribe played in 73 games for the Tribe this year and he was 49 of 238 (.206 avg, .591 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 7 homers and 25 RBI. Uribe was signed to a 1-year, $4 million dollar deal by the Tribe last winter. Uribe’s release led to Jose Ramirez getting the full time job at 3B for the Tribe, and the result has been outstanding. 39-year old righty swinging outfielder Marlon Byrd was signed to a 1-year, $1 million dollar deal late in spring training when it was evident that Michael Brantley wouldn’t be ready to start the season. Byrd played in 34 games for the Tribe in which he was 31 of 115 (.270 avg, .778 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 5 homers and 19 RBI. Then Byrd was suspended for 162 games for testing positive for PEDs! Overall though, the signings Napoli and Davis more than made up for the signings of Uribe and Byrd.
