Cleveland Indians 2015 in Review

A look back at the players and trends that drove the Tribe and their farm system during 2015.

MVP Countdown #1: Jason Kipnis

Are you surprised? You shouldn't be surprised.

MVP Countdown #2: Corey Kluber

Although Corey Kluber won’t sniff a repeat Cy Young, he should definitely finish higher than he will in this year’s voting.

MVP Countdown #3: Francisco Lindor

It took Francisco Lindor only 99 games to play his way into our hearts and onto #3 in our MVP countdown.

MVP Countdown #4: Carlos Carrasco

Carlos Carrasco was stellar in his first full season as a starter

MVP Countdown #5: Michael Brantley

Unfortunately, it does not look like the injuries are done quite yet...

MVP Countdown #6: Danny Salazar

Even though Danny Salazar was a nominal #3 in the Tribe rotation, he was much close to an ace.

MVP Countdown #7: Carlos Santana

Here's a look at Carlos Santana, the seventh place finisher in LGT's MVP balloting.

MVP Countdown #8: Cody Allen

Cody Allen had a rough first month, but still ended up with a dominating season in 2015.

MVP Countdown #9: Lonnie Chisenhall

Other American League right fielders hate him! See how Lonnie Chisenhall used this weird trick to become a productive player.

MVP Countdown #10: Cody Anderson

We are officially kicking off our Let’s Go Tribe MVP Countdown with Cody Anderson: a player who I did not think would get playing time in 2015, let alone be part of the discussion for best player on the team.

2015 in Review: Zach McAllister

Pitcher Zach McAllister may have found his new home in the Cleveland Indians bullpen after posting a 3.00 ERA in 2015. He made his fair share of mistakes over the season, but statistically this was McAllister’s best season by a longshot.

2015 in Review: Roberto Perez

As far as backup catchers go, it does not get much better than Roberto.

2015 in Review: Yan Gomes

Yan Gomes was taken out by a bad slide early in the year, and may have come back a little too soon.

2015 in Review: Giovanny Urshela

Urshela was called upon to provide a glove not looking like a frying pan at third base. But how did his bat hold up?

2015 in Review: Jeff Manship

For a reliever, ERA can be a fickle thing--have one or two bad games and it will look bad for the entire season, no matter how good you were (see: Cody Allen). However, when your name is Jeff Manship and you only allow four runs it can be flattering.

2015 in Review: Trevor Bauer

As polarizing a figure Josh Tomlin is on LGT, I believe Trevor Bauer may top him in digital ink. Let us review his perplexing 2015 season.

2015 in Review: Bryan Shaw

Bryan Shaw put together another solid season... let's take a look at his 2015 season for the Cleveland Indians.

2015 in Review: Ryan Raburn

Ryan Raburn was awesome in 2015 and will probably be pretty good in 2016, too.

2015 in Review: Josh Tomlin

Little Cowboy looked great in his injury-shortened 2015 season, but don't expect those same results in 2015.

2015 in Review: Chris Johnson

Spider-Chris, Spider-Chris...

2015 in Review: Abraham Almonte

We kick off our 2015 review of the Major League club with Abraham Almonte--a player who the Indians acquired in a mid-season deal with the San Diego Padres.

2015 in Review: Clint Frazier

Clint Frazier, 1st round pick of the Cleveland Indians in 2013, started off slowly in High-A this season, but after a few tough weeks he got going in a big way. His numbers were strong and he looks like one of the best hitting prospects in baseball.

2015 in Review: Mitch Brown

A former second rounder from 2012, Mitch Brown, could not continue his success from last year.

2015 in Review: Giovanni Soto

Cleveland Indians left-hander Giovanni Soto had a strong 2015 campaign and looks to build upon it for the 2016 season. Let's look at just how good he was this year.

2015 in Review: Bobby Bradley

Bobby Bradley led the Cleveland organization in home runs in 2015.

2015 in Review: Yu-Cheng Chang

Yu-Cheng Chang posted incredible numbers for the Cleveland Indians' Arizona Summer League team in 2014, marking himself as a prospect to watch this year, when he made his full-season debut. His season would be a disappointing one though, and now...

2015 in Review: Jesus Aguilar

Despite being one of the Cleveland Indians prospects to get time on the Major League roster in 2015, Jesus Aguilar did not do much to prove he belongs there for the long-term.

2015 in Review: Francisco Mejia

Francisco Mejia was a highly touted prospect heading into 2015, did he live up to that billing?

2015 in Review: Mike Clevinger

How high up the rotation pecking order can Mike Clevinger climb in 2016?

2015 in Review: James Ramsey

How far has Ramsey's stock fallen?

2015 in Review: Mike Papi

Cleveland Indians prospect Mike Papi got off to a very slow start this season for the High-A Lynchburg Hillcats, but by midseason he'd warmed up, and the 2014 1st round pick might be back on track.

2015 in Review: Ryan Merritt

Ryan Merritt's stock may have dropped year-over-year, but he proved in 2015 that he can win without dominating stuff.
