The Potential Spoilers
Cleveland Indians: After winning the AL Central division and keeping pitchers Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer (both of whom who were mentioned in trade rumors in the offseason), the Indians return a lineup that includes two back-to-back Silver Slugger-winning hitters Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor.
Chicago Cubs: Following a disappointing 2018 campaign, the Cubs bring back a core with World Series winning experience in Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, Ben Zobrist and Kyle Schwarber for another run.
Tampa Bay Rays: Not much was expected of the Rays last season and they ended up winning 90 games and nearly earned a Wild Card berth, while Blake Snell won the American League Cy Young award. Now the team returns with mostly the same roster to try and do it again.
New York Mets: Despite a franchise-best start to the season in 2018, the Mets disappointed by finishing with a losing record, but an offseason overhaul by new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen has fans feeling (slightly) optimistic. The team returns AL Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom and top-line pitchers Zack Wheeler and Noah Syndergaard while adding Robinson Cano’s bat to the lineup and All-Star Edwin Diaz to the bullpen.
St. Louis Cardinals: Trading for slugger Paul Goldschmidt should immediately give the Cardinals a jolt after taking a step back in 2018. Outfielder Dexter Fowler could be primed for a comeback after a disappointing year, while new addition Andrew Miller will give the team some punch in the bullpen.
Los Angeles Angels: Having the best player in baseball is great, but so far all that the Mike Trout-led Angels have produced is just one postseason appearance and zero playoff wins.
