The Indians entered this season with a vaunted rotation, but three of their top four starters are now on the injured list after Carlos Carrasco was placed on the 10-day IL due to a blood condition Wednesday, joining Corey Kluber (fractured ulna in right forearm) and Mike Clevinger (back strain).
With Cleveland sitting 10 1/2 games behind the first-place Twins in the American League Central and another pitcher now sidelined indefinitely, it raises the question of whether the team will explore trade offers for Trevor Bauer, who is earning $13 million this year and can become a free agent after next season.
The Indians reportedly fielded offers for Bauer and Kluber in the offseason as they looked to trim their payroll, but the moves to deal Yonder Alonso, Edwin Encarnacion and Yan Gomes made it less necessary to ship out one of their aces.
