  1. Cleveland says no. I don’t see the Indians trading Emmanuel Clase as he and James Karinchak will make up the back end of the bullpen for the next several years

    The Indians also will not want Grichuk and his contract.

    • Jakob Malloch

      I disagree, Clase is expandable, and I add 15M to the trade that will help pay off the 28M left on his contract. Grichuk, is a slightly above average defender and a slightly above average, overall, offensive player. He would be an upgrade over anyone in that outfield (Naylor is a 1B/DH) at the affordable rate i gave him

      • Jacob Wise

        Putting aside the money issue and assuming the cash will cover it to Cleveland’s liking, the deal is still flawed.

        Clase is not expendable. The Indians just cut their closer, presumably because they know Clase is going to contribute at the back end. They don’t have any other guys in the minors that project to contribute at that level.

        Jansen also doesn’t make much sense. They are committed to Perez being their starting catcher already.

      • Emmanuel Clase was the main piece of the Corey Kluber trade. At that time, Cleveland’s bullpen lacked power arms. Their plan was to pair Clase with another power arm from their farm system in James Karinchak to form the back end of their bullpen. Neither Clase or Karinchak will be a part of any trade.
