Many had been stating the Indians were in the mix for Chapman, but now they may have to turn their attention to the other New York reliever, that being Andrew Miller.
There’s also the chance of the Tribe dealing with the Brewers, as there’s a few players from Milwaukee that have the Indians attention, and there’s been rumblings of a possible deal between those two teams as well.
