Clevelinks, Nov. 9: Roster Rankings

In today’s edition of Clevelinks, we continue to examine the state of the Indians roster and what the Indians are planning to do to make it better in 2014. The options are nearly endless between the list of available free agents, the options already in the organization, and any number of possible trades that could be made. Of course, before you can make a move you have to know what you already have. With that in mind, we kick off today’s Clevelinks with some good old-fashioned roster rankings.

  • Paul Hoynes of listed his rankings of the entire 40-man roster. To the surprise of no one, Jason Kipnis and Justin Masterson took home the top two spots respectively. Other players of note were Yan Gomes at #10, Danny Salazar at #15, and Trevor Bauer at #23. Do you agree or disagree with Hoynsie’s rankings? Let us know what you think.

    The Indians recently activated four players from the disabled list and put them on the 40-man roster. Frank Hermann, Scott Barnes, Lou Marson, and Cord Phelps are finally back and better than ever. Maybe.

  • Yan Gomes was given the distinct honor of being named the top defensive player for the Cleveland Indians by Wilson Sporting Goods. It was quite the season for Gomes, who went from trade throw in and minor league depth to full-time starting catcher and defensive player of the year. Not too shabby.
