Shane Bieber made the first team While Hand and Ramirez were named to the 2nd team for reliever and third base positions.
Bieber won the Cy Young Award last year while compiling a 1.63 ERA and 122 strikeouts.
“That’s pretty special,” Bieber said. “I appreciate them for casting their votes for me. It means the world, it really does. I’m just happy. … It just makes it that much better that we were able to take this thing home and that it was unanimous.”
Beiber joined the list of Indians players that won the award that included: Corey Kluber (2014 and ’17), Cliff Lee (’08), CC Sabathia (’07) and Gaylord Perry (1972).
Jose Ramirez bounced back from a disappointing 2019 to hit 17 homeruns with 46 RBI’s.
He was the runner up for the American League MVP.
Brad Hand led the league in saves with 16 and posted a 2.05 ERA.
He was the first Indians closer to lead the league in saves since Jose Mesa in the 1995 season.
