While they've had some great pitching performances so far, the injury-plagued Indians have really sputtered on offense. As a team, they're hitting just .221/.278/.326. Coupled with their defensive stats, which already have them pegged as one of the worst fielding teams in baseball yet again, it's easy to see why the first two weeks of the season have been subpar. -- Stephanie Liscio (@stephanieliscio), It's Pronounced "Lajaway"
In the first week of a season in which Cleveland is supposed to be a legitimate contender, the Tribe still can't beat the Tigers. To add insult to injury, catcher Yan Gomes was placed on the disabled list Sunday with a sprained right knee and Michael Brantley is dealing with lingering back issues. On the plus side, Jerry Sands went 3-for-4 with four RBIs on Saturday. -- Susan Petrone (@susanpetrone), It's Pronounced "Lajaway"
The Indians did not make a big splash this offseason; with Gavin Floyd's injury, it means their only major addition was Brandon Moss. However, their strong core of young players has many fans excited about what 2015 could hold for the team. -- Stephanie Liscio (@stephanieliscio), It's Pronounced "Lajaway"
