Ranking the Cleveland Indians' Best All-Star Game Candidates
Tony Dejak/Associated Press

The Cleveland Indians' 2014 season has been a relative disappointment, as the team currently sits two games under the .500 mark at 41-43, with 7.5 games separating Cleveland and the division-leading Detroit Tigers. The club is just 2.5 games ahead of the last-place Minnesota Twins.

Despite the Indians' underwhelming overall performance, there are several players on the roster worthy of some All-Star Game notoriety.

Last year, the team sent two players to the 2013 All-Star Game, Jason Kipnis and Justin Masterson. This year, it may be just one player representing the club, as their performance as a squad has kept several deserving players from shining on a bigger stage.

All in all, four Indians players look to be even remotely deserving of a spot on the American League's roster. So, in this piece, we'll look at said players and rank them to find who the "best" candidate is to represent the club at Target Field in Minnesota on July 15.

Let's get started.
