The Cleveland Indians have reportedly made several claims to recently waived players, but have been unable to work out a trade per The Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Paul Hoynes. #Indians have claimed several players on waivers, but have been unable to work a trade. They have no interest in Delmon Young. — paul hoynes (@hoynsie) August 19, 2013 Hoynes does not explicitly say exactly who the Indians claimed, but added that the team is not interested in the 27-year-old right-handed outfielder Delmon Young. Young, recently released by the Philadelphia Phillies, has an OPS of .699 through 80 games this season. He is said to have mutual interest with the Tampa Bay Rays. Over the course of the last two weeks, the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins had placed sluggers Paul Konerko and Justin Morneau, respectively, on waivers. Both men cleared and were subsequently able to be dealt during the current post-trade deadline period. Prior to the deadline, the Indians acquired left-handed relief pitcher Mark Rzepczynski who has allowed three hits and one run (zero earned) in 7 2/3 innings. The Indians are 7-10 since the passing of the July 31 trade deadline. The waiver deadline is August 31. [Related: Tribe Weekend Recap: Missed opportunities spawn series loss in Oakland]
