Neil Walker (23)
Brian Dozier (23)
Khris Davis (22)
Anthony Rendon (21)
Yan Gomes (21)

OAKLAND -- With a couple hours until the Indians attempt to open the 2014 season against the Athletics, the team has made official the extension with catcher Yan Gomes.
Gomes has a six-year extension worth $23 million with a club option for 2020 and 2021. Gomes established himself as the everyday catcher the second half of last season, batting .294 with 18 doubles, 11 home runs...
The Cleveland Indians open the 2014 season with new expectations despite many questions. The Indians’ 25-man roster will look different than the group that won 92 games and lost the American League Wild Card game to the Tampa Bay Rays. While the roster may change and the expectations grow, Cleveland will need answer many questions this spring before opening the season in Oakland...
Last season, the Indians' bench players went above and beyond what was expected of them on the field.
They made a name for themselves as the team's super-subs and quickly became fan favorites.
