While many are fretting about the Indians offense and who is going to play where and do what in 2019, one thing is for sure – the Tribe’s starting rotation is still at the very top, if not the very best in baseball.
If you don’t believe that, all you need to do is check out the odds for who Las Vegas (who usually is pretty good with this stuff) thinks will be in the running to win the 2019 AL Cy Young Award.
The Indians have no less than three of their starting five pitchers in the top ten preseason odds to take home the award, with Corey Kluber (+350 and the overall American League favorite), Carlos Carrasco (+1200) and Trevor Bauer (+2000) also on the list.
So basically the odds mean that if you think Kluber is going to win the award, and you put $100 on him to do it, you would win $350.
Think Carrasco will take home the award? If you place $100 on him you’d win $1200, and Bauer if you put $100 on him and he wins you’d take home a cool $2000.
Now if you think that upstart Mike Clevinger is going to swoop in and have a big year and win the award – he’s at +5000 to win the Cy Young, again meaning if you place $100 on him to win it and he does – you would take home a whopping $5000.

It’s always a good morning when THREE of your Starting Pitchers are in the TOP TEN preseason odds to win the AL Cy Young Award in 2019 🙏🏻🙌🏻
