Report: Red Sox among teams asking on Indians starters
|07.24.15 at 7:57 pm ET|
It’s becoming clear the Red Sox will be after top-of-the-line starters at the trade deadline, and one of the teams with some of the best young starters in the game is the Indians.
So it should be no surprise that according to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox are one of the teams who have asked the Indians about their starters. Rosenthal says the Indians “aren’t motivated to act” and it would need to be a “very compelling deal.”
One of the starters the Indians would be most likely to deal is Carlos Carrasco. He also fits what the Red Sox want as he is 28 years old and under team control until 2018 with team options for 2019 and 2020. The right-hander is 10-7 with a 3.94 ERA this season.
The Indians also have Corey Kluber, Danny Salazar and Trevor Bauer — all under team control — but it would seem Carrasco would be the player the Indians would be most likely to give up.
