The Cleveland Indians have been overhauling the roster so far this offseason. And, while some moves were anticipated with a bevy of players becoming free agents, other moves have surprised and puzzled fans. 

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says it's all about trimming their $134 million budget after two disappointing trips to the postseason. 


Cleveland Indians fans likely aren’t going to be pleased with changes the front office will be making this offseason. The team is expected to part ways with about 10 players who are free agents, including Michael Brantley, Andrew Miller and Cody Allen. And, it's possible the team could trade a big star, like pitcher Corey Kluber.


The Indians are getting set to make some big changes in the offseason. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto said he got some inside information about what the team is planning to do first.

The team has more than five players who are now free agents, and it’s likely that most of them will be gone.

The American League beat the National League in last night’s All-Star game, 8-6 in 10 innings. 

The Indians sent six players to Washington, their most since 1999.

Catcher Yan Gomes was named an All-Star for the first time in his career, to replace injured Tampa Bay catcher Wilson Ramos. Gomes joined Francisco Lindor, Jose Ramirez, Michael Brantley, Trevor Bauer and Corey Kluber. Kluber didn’t play after receiving an injection in his knee.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto said there are a couple of unlikely stars on this Indians team.
