Jason Kipnis Jerseys hands of his players15/11/2017
Indians not ready to tackle uncertain futureThey stood together talking quietly in a hallway outside the Indians' clubhouse. Josh Tomlin, the longest-tenured player in the organization, leaned against a wall. Michael Brantley, often described as the heart and soul of the team, kept his hands inside the pockets of his sweatshirt.There will undoubtedly be more conversations in the days and weeks to come, but the realization that this could be the end of the line for several members of Cleveland's core was sinking in. After a 5-2 loss to the Yankees on Wednesday night, sealing the Tribe's defeat in Game 5 of the American League Division Series presented by Doosan, players like Brantley, Carlos Santana and Jay Bruce were faced with uncertain futures sooner than anticipated."I started a quest back in 2009. I want to finish it  the right way," Brantley said. "I don't want to go out like this if it's my choice.  It's not. I just look forward to hopefully being back here with this group of guys. I have amazing relationships with everybody in this locker room. Great teammates. Great team. I just look forward to being part of it for a long time."Chris Antonetti, the Indians' president of baseball operations, made his way around the home clubhouse after Wednesday's loss, shaking the Jason Kipnis Jerseys hands of his players. Antonetti, general manager Mike Chernoff and manager Terry Francona were hoping to avoid discussions about the 2018 roster until after the World Series. Instead, the Yanks are moving on and the offseason came early in Cleveland.There will be a lot on the front office's plate. Relievers Jason Kipnis Jerseys Bryan Shaw and Joe Smith will be free agents, along with veteran outfielder Austin Jackson. Tomlin also has a $3 Francisco Lindor Jerseys million team option for 2018. The biggest decisions, though, will Cleveland Indians Jerseys revolve around Brantley ($11 million team option or $1 million buyout), Santana (free agent) and Bruce (free agent)."Oh boy," Francona said. "I don't know if I'm ready to even think about guys moving on. ... The game's still a little too raw to go into that, yet."That did Manny Ramirez Jerseys not stop such thoughts from seeping into the minds of the impacted players.For the players with options, Cleveland will need to make a decision by three days after the conclusion of the World Series. For the free agents, if the Indians want to net Draft compensation, they will need to extend a one-year Qualifying Offer, which will be in the range of $18 million for next season. The player would then need to reject the offer and sign a contract of at least $50 million in order for the Tribe to get a pick between the first round and Competitive Balance Round A in next summer's MLB Draft.While Bruce was surrounded by a large pack of reporters, Santana sat alone at his locker, scrolling through messages on his phone. Santana came to the Indians as a Minor Leaguer via a trade with the Dodgers in 2008. The switch-hitter began as a catcher and eventually became a reliable first baseman. He has logged at least 600 plate appearances in seven straight years with the Tribe and ranks fourth in club history in walks (726) and 11th in home runs (174).I want to buy one? Welcome to our store
