37-year old righty swinging 3B Juan Uribe is turning up the power at the plate lately for the Cleveland Indians.  In his first 16 games this June for the Tribe, Uribe is 10 for 56 (.179 avg, .668 OPS) with 8 runs scored, 5 homers and 10 RBIs.  Uribe has now played in 55 games overall this year for the Indians and he is 42 of 185 (.227 avg, .665 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 7 homers and 21 RBIs.  Uribe needs to keep it up with the bat, or the Indians might try to replace him by making a trade in late July.

33-year old switch-hitting IF/OF Michael Martinez has seemingly found a home with the Cleveland Indians, after struggling big time earlier in his career.  He has played in 20 games for the Indians so far this year and he is 13 of 42 (.310 avg, .762 OPS) with 8 runs scored, 1 homer and 3 RBIs.  Martinez has now played in 36 games in his first two years with the Tribe and he is 21 of 72 (.292 avg, .704 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 1 homer and 5 RBIs.  Martinez can play all over the field defensively, making him very valuable.  So if Martinez keeps hitting well, Francona will find him some ABs.  Martinez has now played in 224 games in his first six years in the show and he is 94 of 475 (.198 avg, .515 OPS) with 57 runs scored, 6 homers, 41 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.

25-year old lefty swinging outfielder Tyler Naquin is likely up with the Cleveland Indians to stay now.  He came into this season as the Indians’ #6 prospect according to Baseball America.  Naquin has turned up the power so far in June for the Tribe.  In his first 9 games in June, Naquin is 8 for 24 (.333 avg, 1.304 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 4 homers and 8 RBIs.  Naquin has now played in 36 games overall so far this year and he is 28 of 87 (.322 avg, .906 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 4 homers and 10 RBIs.  It might be hard for Naquin to keep up with that batting average he has due to the fact that he has already whiffed 31 times this year against only 6 walks.  That being said, the Indians hope that Naquin keeps raking at the dish.

23-year old switch-hitting IF/OF Jose Ramirez has been a godsend for the Cleveland Indians in 2016.  He can play virtually anywhere on the field (except pitcher and catcher), so he has been playing somewhere almost every night for the Tribe.  He has played in 39 games for the Tribe so far this year and he is 37 of 129 (.287 avg, .776 OPS) with 20 runs scored, 3 homers, 18 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  Ramirez has now played in 219 games in his first four years with the Indians and he is 172 of 693 (.248 avg, .669 OPS) with 102 runs scored, 11 homers, 62 RBIs and 23 stolen bases.  The Indians hope that Ramirez keeps up the good work.

22-year old switch-hitting SS Francisco Lindor is building off his dazzling rookie season for the Cleveland Indians so far in 2016.  He has played in 29 games for the Tribe so far this year and he is 35 of 112 (.313 avg, .787 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 2 homers, 12 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  Lindor has now played in 128 games in his first two years with the Indians and he is 157 of 502 (.313 avg, .824 OPS) with 69 runs scored, 14 homers, 63 RBIs and 17 stolen bases.  Lindor doesn’t just excel with a bat in his hand, as he is a dazzling defensive shortstop.  Lindor is the complete package and he is a player the Indians can build around.
