As we all know the Cleveland Indians don't have the highest payroll in Major League Baseball so at times they have to go bargain hunting. This past year it was signing Mike Napoli and Rajai Davis for a about 15 million between the two...and it worked out. Both had career years with the tribe and are due for a upgrade in their pay. So, who's going to be this year's Napoli or Davis?
*note There is a chance that the Indians re-sign both Davis and Napoli but with lack of free agent depth at first it seems like Napoli will get paid more than the Tribe are willing to offer. Also any "Major" move would likely happen in a trade.
MLBtraderumors.com predicts him signing with the Indians.
It will be interesting to see what the Indians do this off-season. Coming off of an improbable World Series run without three of their top players, this off-season might be kind of quiet. Whether that's good or bad we will see. But what we do know is the Indians aren't going to break any piggy banks this off-season.
