The Cleveland Indians have stayed relatively quiet at the Winter Meetings the past 10 years but have made a few memorable transactions.
There is no bigger MLB offseason event than the Winter Meetings as the Cleveland Indians and all 29 other teams’ across the league gather with rival executives and agents to complete trades and finish off free-agent deals.
Despite a year full of canceled events, the Winter Meetings will go on in 2020 but look slightly different as they will be held virtually amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Meetings will begin Sunday, and run through the end of the Rule 5 Draft on Thursday, Dec. 10.
The last decade has seen the Indians stay relatively at the Winter Meetings with only a few trades, small signings and Rule 5 Draft choices. However, this year the Tribe will have much of the baseball world watching them.

In honor of the Winter Meetings kicking off Sunday, here’s a look at every move the Indians have made during them since 2010.
