Cleveland Indians Retired Numbers: Who's Next?

While looking for the next team to cover in the Retired Numbers Series, I noticed something interesting about the Cleveland Indians. The team has six retired numbers.

Among the sixteen original teams (the eight AL and eight NL teams around in 1901), only four teams have six or fewer retired numbers. And the other three (the Baltimore Orioles, Minnesota Twins and Oakland Athletics) all spent significant portions of their history in other cities.

Is this low number for the Indians the result of higher standards, a lack of good candidates, or something else?

And does it look like they’ll add to this total any time soon?
