Report: Rival executives believe Indians will trade Trevor Bauer
Trevor Bauer’s name remains active on the market, and those in the know believe the Cleveland Indians right-hander will be on the move.
According to Andy Martino of SNY, rival executives believe that the Indians will move Bauer before the July 31 trade deadline. Potential destinations are unknown, though the New York Yankees have at least spoken to Cleveland about him.
Rivals expect Bauer to get traded. Of course thats informed speculation. Yankees in it but not heavy at the moment.

If this is the case, it’s entirely possible that Bauer’s final start with the Indians will have ended with him having a rather spectacular on-field temper tantrum. There has been some speculation that it could hinder his trade value, but a 28-year-old who can pitch at ace quality and has another year of control left is worth a lot no matter what.
