If you watched any baseball in the past month, you may have noticed boatloads of Let’s Go Former Tribe members on the field for other clubs. Many of those players saw action the prior postseason as well, as teammates on the 2018 Indians.

How did those players fare this postseason? Let’s find out!

Yan Gomes

• 2018 Postseason: .250/.333/.250; caught three games, all losses.

• 2019 Postseason: .231/.231/.692; mashed two home runs in the AL Wild Card Game.

Andrew Miller

Trevor Bauer
