Report: Indians place high asking price on starting pitchers
Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Though rumors continue to fly that the Cleveland Indians will deal one of two leading starting pitchers, neither will come cheap.

According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the asking price on both Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer is “very, very high,” though both players could be acquired for the right return.

Olney notes that the Houston Astros, who are in danger of losing Dallas Keuchel as a free agent, are interested in starting pitching and could be a potential trade partner.

Cleveland is sending some mixed signals at this point. The asking price is high, but there is motivation to make a move. Perhaps, at least for the moment, they believe they’ll be able to entice someone to give up a lot in return for one of their big arms.
