Will the Indians really trade Trevor Bauer in 2019?
Hey, Hoynsie: It looks like Trevor Bauer has punched his ticket out of Cleveland. His mentioned intention to signal only just one-12 months promotions helps make him Trade Bait No. 1. He has just about every suitable to go 12 months by 12 months in his agreement demands, but that would not signify I have to fortunately accept it. So continue to keep Corey Kluber and trade Bauer no later on than July (except if the Indians seem primed for a deep run into the postseason). — Andy Gasho, Strongsville.
Hey, Andy: The Indians, counting this season, have two years of regulate in excess of Bauer. He would seem predisposed to obtaining traded sometime this 12 months or during the coming offseason. I would uncover it difficult to trade Bauer during the season if the Indians are rolling. If they are having difficulties, I assume a trade would virtually be a certainty.
The Indians discovered a sturdy industry for Bauer this wintertime. That industry is not heading to evaporate, specifically if he carries on to pitch properly. If the Indians waited right until the offseason to make a offer, a contender may possibly get him for his past 12 months of regulate, make him a qualifying offer you and gather a large draft decide on when he turns absolutely free agent and indications somewhere else.
Who knows maybe a workforce could offer you Bauer ample income in which he indications a multiyear offer. Stranger points have took place.

Trevor Bauer and clubhouse chemistry
Hey, Hoynsie: My dilemma about Trevor Bauer is do you recognize his teammates dealing with him any in another way this spring coaching or is he obtaining alongside? I will usually remember the video game he cracked me up with his imitations of hitters batting stances, but it would seem that male is not all over anymore. — Dwain Slaven, Dade Town, Fla.
Hey, Dwain: Bauer has stated numerous situations that he would not care what other folks assume of him. He’s heading to be his have person and he would not care if you like it or not.
But he is the only player I’ve heard of who quizzed his teammates on why they felt he was a terrible teammate and how he could enhance. Mike Clevinger and he seem to be tight and this wintertime he interviewed Clevinger and Leonys Martin for his new media company.
I’ve viewed him offer you guidance to his fellow pitchers when they look for him out. He would not continue to keep significantly inside of. Final 12 months he retained complaining to reporters about how significantly the pressure fracture to his suitable leg ruined his fantastic season. It acquired to a point in which a teammate or a person in the corporation advised him to give it a relaxation. The next time he talked to the media that was just one of the first points out of his mouth.
Not everybody receives alongside on a workforce. Benefits on the area are what depend the most.
