The Cleveland Indians have some options they could end up giving the go-ahead to upgrade their roster prior to the 2018 MLB Trade Deadline.
For good reasons, the Cleveland Indians have been to some degree rumored as possible destinations for many trade deadline targets. Having already acquired two relievers, the Tribe are in a position to go out and fill the rest of their needs as they see fit.
Since they did not end up with Manny Machado but could still use more help in the infield, their list of options may be longer than originally thought. Second base would be the upgrade as Jose Ramirez would move over to there if Cleveland acquired a third baseman.
Despite the many players being linked to Cleveland, they very well could stay as-is. By doing so, their approach likely would be that they hope those that are injured can come back and help out tremendously. Plus, any potential minor leaguer being brought up would likely fall under the same expectations.
So, what kind of trades are the Indians going to pull off while they still can? Here are three predictions on what is going to happen.
