If the Cleveland Guardians are going to return to the postseason and start off on the right foot under newly hired manager Stephen Vogt, they are going to need some help. Some help that could come from some familiar faces. A few of these have recently made an appearance in a Cleveland uniform, while others have been away from the organization for a few years.

1. Matt Moore

Starting with a recent member of the Guardians' organization, left-handed relief pitcher Matt Moore. Moore's time with the Guardians last season was brief but came at a time when the team believed that they could make a genuine run to the postseason. While that ultimately did not happen, Cleveland would be wise to consider a second go-around with Moore.

The 34-year-old would give Cleveland a second left-handed reliever in their bullpen, the other being Sam Hentges. Moore has been very impressive the past two seasons, striking out 143 batters in 126.2 innings with an ERA of 2.20 and 1.168 WHIP. Cleveland would not need Moore to be their go-to lefty, nor should he be at this point in his career. However, he would be able to provide some insurance should Hentges falter or the team be unable to bring in anyone else to bolster their relief corps.
