    A salary dump proposal between Cleveland and Anaheim. The primary motivation in this would be the Indians offloading Carrasco’s contract. And since some trades I’ve proposed in the past seem to be concerned with the active rotation of the Indians, Sandoval seems like a fair trade off being younger and cheaper than Carrasco. Yan and Hedges are thrown in since the Angels could use a catcher and it seems like Cleveland has three ready to go for 2021.

    Like I mentioned in my last Carrasco proposal, this is of course pending medical reviews considering his history, but if everything was cleared, this might be a way a trade could unfold.

    Alternative trades could see Cleveland asking for longer term prospects, but as a salary dump, I think their asking would be limited from any top names.

    Leave some thoughts to let me know how I’m doing with my assessments!

  2. The Indians would not have an active concern with their rotation as they have depth where they could likely use Cal Quantril in the rotation. The Indians need is to improve their offense particularly in the outfield.

    On a personal note, If the Indians trade Carlos Carrasco in a “salary dump” I am done as an Indian and baseball fan. Carrasco has been loyal to the Indians signing two way below market contracts to stay with Cleveland. He wants to stay in Cleveland and is the heart of their locker room. The current pitching staff looks up to Carlos. Over the years, I have learned to root for the uniform rather than the player, but trading Carrasco in a salary dump would be the last straw.

    Baseball has many problems that they need to solve to save the game in my opinion. First is MLB and the MLBPA need to sit down and work out a new CBA. Another year or two of fighting in the media will continue to drive fans away. They also need to do something to fix the imbalance between small and large market teams.
