Clevelinks, July 31: Trade Deadline Nears


With the non-waiver trading deadline quickly approaching, speculation is running rampant about what moves various teams are looking to make. Among these teams looking to make potential moves has been the Cleveland Indians. Since they are still in the thick of things for the AL Central and one of the two AL Wild Card spots, this makes sense. We’ve already seen them make one move for a left-handed reliever, but are they planning on doing anything else? We’ll soon find out.

Wahoo’s on First Links:

  • Geordy Boveroux was all over the Indians trade for Marc Rzepczynski. You can read his review of the trade and just what he thinks the Indians go in return for a player that was most likely never going to make it to the big league club.
  • Evan Vogel wonders what the Indians are doing with Danny Salazar and whether or not they should consider him for work in the bullpen.
  • Nick Houghtaling provided a terrific profile on the resurgence of Scott Kazmir and how he has rebuilt his career after all but falling out of professional baseball.
  • For last week’s Wrountable discussion, we all played pretend GM and came up with some make-believe trade we thought the Indians should make. Needless to say, no one called the Rzepczynski move.
