Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) ­– The Indians have made multiple trades this offseason. They’ve decreased their salary for next season by $21.5 million.

Let’s assume they use that money to address their weaknesses in the outfield and the bullpen – what players do you want them to sign? They have the money to add one or two outfielders and two or three relief pitchers.

A.J. Pollock should be their top target in free agency if you ask me. He's had injury issues, but he has the talent and may take a short-term 'prove it' contract. Nick Markakis, 35, is getting older, but he's another option in the outfield and should be willing to sign a two or three-year contract. 

The Indians should have their pick of relievers. The market is flooded with capable arms, which means signing two or three of them over the next few months is probable. It wouldn't be shocking to see the Indians land three capable relief pitchers for $10-12 million in salary for 2019.

Andrew Miller reportedly agreed to a two-year, $25 million contract with St. Louis. The Cardinals reportedly outbid multiple teams for his services. It would be a win for Cleveland if the Indians can sign two or three arms to give them some bullpen depth for the same price it would've taken to keep Miller.
