The Cleveland Indians 2013 season was a rousing success. A team that was projected to win just 77 games on the year, the Indians finished with a 92-70 record and find themselves in sole possession of the top wild card spot in the American League.
The Indians got key contributions from players like Jason Kipnis, Justin Masterson, Ubaldo Jimenez, Carlos Santana and several others, and were able to overcome their preseason deficiencies. These players helped guide the team to their first playoff appearance since 2007.
Others, e.g. Chris Perez, struggled through 2013 and could find themselves out of a job when 2014 rolls around.
With that said, here are end-of-season grades for every Cleveland Indians player in the 2013 regular season.
To avoid bland and content-less slides, we'll limit this article to players on the active roster. For positions players, we'll grade those who have amassed 15 plate appearances, for pitchers, we'll use a minimum of 15 innings pitched. Additionally, only a player's contributions to the Indians will be considered in the grading process. Minor league statistics may be referenced, but are not considered in the grading process.
