From 2013-2017 there was no bigger polarizing player for the Cleveland Indians than relief pitcher Bryan Shaw. Some fans would cheer with delight when he came in a game because they felt he did well more often than not, while others would start to cringe in fear that he would blow a lead.

In his five seasons in Cleveland, he pitched in 378 games with an ERA of 3.11 and a WHIP of 1.188. His strikeout to walk ratio was 2.8 and in 358.2 innings pitched; he gave up only 31 home runs. Most notably, in those five seasons, he led the league in games played three times. With his departure to the Colorado Rockies, the Indians will need to replace his 70+ appearances. This article will examine some of those options.
