  1. Cleveland is in the playoff battle in the AL despite massive injuries and health issues to their pitching staff. I don’t see them trading Hand and Wittgren as they are their best two relievers. The Indians also need to wait to see how Kluber is recouping from his injury. With the Carrasco news today, I don’t see the Indians trading Bauer until the off season. If they did, I can’t see them wanting Inciarte or Folty who are underperforming. Cleveland would need higher MLB ready hitters. Inciarte and Jenista are not enough to move the needle. I see this trade proposal helping Atlanta, but not helping the Indians.

    • John Bitzer

      I agree. Feels like too much quantity, not enough quality for the Indians here.

    This deal is lopsided in favor of the Indians. They are getting three starting pitchers which they direly need. Bauer with his limited control and negative personality are redundant for the Braves. Inciarte is gold glove defensive player of the year who recently recorded 200 hits in one season whose value is down because he is injured and on a very team friendly contract. The Cleveland relievers represent value to the Braves but again with a high cost and limited control. Indians season is shot, they will be rebuilding soon.

    • Even if they trade Trevor Bauer, the Indians still have Bieber, Clevinger, Plesac, with Kluber, Carrasco, Salazar, and pitchers in the minors. They don’t need three starting pitchers. Gohara is untradeable with his situation and Folty is struggling mightily this year in both the majors and minors. If you did your homework the Indians need hitting and they aren’t getting that in Inciarte who is also having a horrible year.

      So you want three players having good to very good years for Atlanta’s struggles.
