Series Standouts

All is not lost, however. The Indians did have some players who stepped up across the three games series. Surprisingly (or not), they are some of the Indians’ biggest names.

Jose Ramirez

Currently hitting .333, Jose Ramirez is starting off the season hot. He hasn’t hit any RBI’s just yet, but he is on the board with a run scored. The Indians will go as far as Ramirez wills them.

Eddie Rosario

Talk about a steal. Through three games, Eddie Rosario is hitting .375 with a home run, three hits, four RBI’s, and three walks. He’s been an absolute beast at the plate. The Indians are going to need him going forward if they hope to win the AL Central.

Amed Rosario

Eddie isn’t the only Rosario doing work, as Amed Rosario (no relation) is hitting well in his first third of a Tribe player. Rosario didn’t play much until his third day, where he played shortstop played as well.

Shane Bieber

Only pitching in the home opener, for the time being, Shane Bieber dazzled on the season opener, throwing 6.0 innings, 5.0 IP, five hits, three runs, three earned runs, three walks, and 12 strikeouts. Bieber is protecting his 2020 AL Cy Young winner during extreme situations.
