With the trade deadline less than 24 hours away the Indians are still in the market for listening, and many are still wondering exactly the direction this team will take before tomorrow’s deadline hits.
There’s a new rumor out and it’s an interesting one based on the fact that the Astros are in town tonight, and that’s from Jon Morosi, who says that Cleveland and Houston have talked about a deal for pitcher Trevor Bauer, who keeps coming up in conversation it appears.

As Morosi says, the Astros want a pitcher, and it sounds like the Indians are still willing to listen to offers for Bauer.
While a match is unlikely it feels, it goes without saying that the Tribe has an open ear still when it comes to moving Bauer, and it sounds like they would be willing to trade him to just about any team at this point for the right price.
