Expected to be major sellers this offseason, the Cleveland Indians instead added a number of veteran pieces, and they appear to be in a good position to improve on their 68 wins from last season.
Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn rank as the team's big offseason signings, but they also added another big bat in Mark Reynolds and a pair of veteran starters in Brett Myers and Daisuke Matsuzaka while bolstering their bench and adding a number of bullpen arms.
The biggest move of the offseason, though, may have been the three-team trade that shipped Shin-Soo Choo to the Cincinnati Reds and brought top pitching prospect Trevor Bauer, center fielder Drew Stubbs and relievers Matt Albers and Bryan Shaw.
