There is no guarantee the Cleveland Indians will make a trade(s) before the MLB Trade Deadline. Should they do make such a move, there are areas of the team that would benefit from an upgrade.
History was just made by the Cleveland Indians, having just achieved their longest winning streak in franchise history. That run of success may or may not impact their plans regarding trades, but if an opportunity is there for improvement, a deal must be made.
As Cleveland fans are all too accustomed to, acquiring an elite player before the deadline is not going to happen. Instead, the Indians’ possible realistic trade targets will be more Plan B options.
The Indians starting pitching has been great, but their bullpen has their issues. The outfield has been hit or miss, so anything with that part of the team could happen.
On one hand, the Cleveland Indians success has been very impressive so why mess with the chemistry. On the other hand, there are holes with the lineup and an upgrade makes sense.
Whether they do make a trade or not is to be determined. Members of the FoS team gave their thoughts and what they would give up in a potential trade.
