After a little over a month's worth of play, the Cleveland Indians sit at 15-19, good for last place in the American League Central.

The club has been lackluster, largely due to inconsistencies on offense and in the back-end of the starting rotation. The team took steps to address the rotation, moving the struggling Carlos Carrasco to the bullpen and calling up veteran righty Josh Tomlin to replace him.

Though all of this is true, there are other things we can take from the season's first month. In this article, I'll detail four of the biggest takeaways from the first month of the Indians' season.
