Yahoo Sports released its 2018 All-MLB Team and the Cleveland Indians had several players show up throughout the rankings.

The Cleveland Indians are a team stacked with elite talent. That is no secret.

That is why it isn’t too surprising to see several players show up in Yahoo Sports’ second annual All-MLB Team rankings.

Major League Baseball only has a few postseason awards, so Jeff Passan at Yahoo Sports decided to gather some great baseball minds to vote on the best players in the game. What he came up with was three teams of the best players in baseball.

Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez both received first-team honors. Indians fans are already used to the pair being top players in the game. The crazy thing is that they are both still approaching their respective primes.

Trevor Bauer and Corey Kluber both showed up on the second-team, while Mike Clevinger appeared on the third-team. Carlos Carrasco arguably could have been included as well.

This news basically tells Indians fans what they already know. However, it does show a national audience that the Indians are a legitimate contender, and a series victory over the Houston Astros would not be surprising in any sense. Indians fans are well aware of this fact.

I’d recommend checking out all three teams to see how what the voters thought. It is not always easy to watch 162 Indians games and also follow every other team, so the rankings give a sense of who fans should keep an eye on going forward.

Next. Rajai Davis the only logical choice for playoff roster. dark

As with all rankings and awards, it is nice to see so many Indians players be recognized for a big season, but all anyone cares about now is winning the World Series.
