Ryan Lewis: Indians have potential positions to upgrade as trade deadline approaches, but no clear path of action

CLEVELAND: The Indians are approaching the trade deadline brimming with potential options but lacking an obvious course of action. They have yet to hit their stride this season, turning 2017 into a three-and-a-half month waiting game. There are spots on the roster that certainly could be improved but in most cases, they also already possess the type of fix they might look for on the open market in the first place. Last season, the Indians made a major splash at the trade deadline, sending a prospect package headlined by Clint Frazier and Justus Sheffield to the New York Yankees for Andrew...

Indians 2, Blue Jays 1: 13 Walk-Off Thoughts on Danny Salazar’s return, Francisco Lindor’s atonement

Here are 13 Walk-Off Thoughts on the Indians’ 2-1, walk-off win against the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday night. 1. Saturday marked the return of Danny Salazar from the disabled list. It also might have marked the addition to the starting rotation the Indians have needed and might be searching for on the open market. 2. The Indians’ rotation this season has been top heavy. Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco have been a strong 1-2 punch, but after them, the rotation has been laced with question marks. The Indians could look to add a top-tier starting pitcher at the trade deadline. Though,...

What's it going to take to flip the Cleveland Indians' switch? Rant of the week

If it's possible for a team to languish in first place, the Indians have done it for a good part of the season. As the trade deadline approaches, it does not appear the front office is going to inject this team with a front line talent so if they're going to win the AL Central and make a serious postseason push, the players that are currently on the roster are the ones who are going to have to do it.

The Athletics and Mets could score more prospects than runs this weekend

Both teams have front offices hard at work as the trade deadline approaches. Ever since Moneyball came out, the Athletics have been thought of as a progressive franchise that is embraced by some fans and mocked by others. When baseball operations head Billy Beane makes controversial moves like trading Josh Donaldson in his prime, some see the A’s staying ahead of the curve while others see Beane trying to be too smart for his own good. One thing critics haven’t been able to say about Beane is that he’s completely gone in the tank with his limited budget. Even though Oakland has...
