A sleeper targeted for sneaky 20/10 ability, Bauers batted an underwhelming .233/.308/.379 in 100 games for Cleveland. After bolstering their lineup by acquiring Yasiel Puig and Franmil Reyes, the Indians made room by optioning Bauers to Triple-A. He can safely be dropped in all leagues.

Bauers hasn't turned it on yet, and although there is still promise that he will, it isn't worth banking on this year. Rather, target him as a post-hype buy next season.
