The Indians started the campaign with a big rotation, but three of their top four starters are on the disabled list after Carlos Carrasco was disabled on Wednesday due to a blood condition to accompany Corey Kluber (forearm fracture). right) and Mike Clevinger (discomfort in the back).
With the Tribe coming to Thursday's action at 9.5 games for the Twins for the top of the AL Central and another pitcher out of action for an indefinite time, the question arises whether the team will consider attending offers by Trevor Bauer , who earns US $ 13 million this campaign and would become a free agent after the next campaign.
Due to his current position in the standings, the Cleveland team could use Bauer as a change sheet to strengthen their Minor League system and invest the money they would save to improve the team next year, when they could still count on Kluber. , Carrasco, Clevinger, Shane Bieber and possibly Triston McKenzie (the 36th prospect in all baseball, according to MLB Pipeline).
