Tribe looking hard at Garza, Gallardo?

Garza would be a half-year rental. Not sure who is going to sell the farm system to get him, unless they are willing to sign him to a fat extension....

Indians Focused On Garza, Gallardo
By Tim Dierkes [July 9, 2013 at 12:59pm CST]

The Indians seek a top-of-the-rotation type of starting pitcher, writes Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, and the pursuit has led them to focus exclusively on the Cubs' Matt Garza and the Brewers' Yovani Gallardo. Heyman notes that no deal is close on either front. The Indians have decent rotation depth, so they're not interested in lesser starters.

The Indians are on Gallardo's no-trade list, as first reported by Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish in June. He could approve a trade to Cleveland, but it would represent an additional hurdle for the Indians and Brewers. As Brewers GM Doug Melvin explained to Anthony Witrado of Sporting News in June, "That Yovani is not a free agent like guys like [Zack] Greinke or Anibal Sanchez last year, he has more value than just two months of a rental, so the package from another team has to be something that will wow me." Gallardo is under contract through 2014 with a club option for '15.

Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports reported earlier today that the Indians and Rangers "are known to have strong interest" in Garza. A Garza trade appears to be a question of "when," rather than "if." I imagine the Cubs' focus in Garza talks will be on pitching, and I would guess they'd bring up names like Danny Salazar, Carlos Carrasco (optioned to Triple-A today), and even Trevor Bauer. The Indians also seek bullpen help, notes Heyman, a need that the Cubs could accommodate.

Made a trade deadline thread for everything, but I guess this is fairly big news.

If they want Carrasco, they can have him. I don't think they'd be too gung ho on Bauer. A guy who actively tries to induce fly balls while pitching at Wrigley is a recipe for disaster.

I want to keep Salazar. I don't think he stays a starter, but he might have closer type stuff if moved to the back end of the pen.

My bad, didn't see it. I'll move the post over there. Can someone in management delete this thread?

Doesn't matter. More threads give the illusion of more traffic.
