occurringWhile there was the possibility Josh Naylor could have joined this list if he stayed healthy, considering he landed on the injured list with 79 runs batted in. Jose Ramirez (66) could have also found himself accomplishing this feat if a few more bats in the lineup could pull their weight. With the chances for either occuring this year on life support, let's look back at the last five Cleveland baseball players to drive in 100 or more runs in a season.
(Note: This is individual players to drive in 100 or more runs and not multiple seasons by the same player).
Jose Ramirez (2022)
finishedYou do not have to go far back to find the most recent Cleveland baseball player to do it, as Jose Ramirez drove in 126 in 2022. This was a career-high for Ramirez and the second straight year that Ramirez broke the 100 RBI barrier. Ramirez recorded 103 in 152 games in 2021, and his previous career-high came back in 2018 with 105 driven in. An injury shortened 2019 derailed another possible 100 RBI campaign as he finihsed with 83 RBIs in 129 games.
