If the Indians aren't willing to trade Carrasco or Salazar, then who would be the players going in a trade for a position player? Pluto looks at the possibilities, which include Mike Clevinger, Bradley Zimmer, Justus Sheffield and Clint Frazier - basically, the team's top prospects . Also, congrats to LGFT Tony Sipp, who got a life-changing contract over the weekend.
As Hoynes noted, the Braves wanted and got prospects for Shelby Miller. The Indians are looking for major-league bats.
A talk with the senior director of ticket sales and service for the Indians.
Also from Crain's, the Indians will install a 13,000 square foot scoreboard before Opening Day. I believe the funding for this is coming from the Gateway Corporation because the scoreboard is considered a plant asset.
Not directly related to the Indians, but the Indians and Cubs match up in trade possibilities (Cubs want a starter, Indians want an outfielder).
News from around MLB

You wonder if the Orioles will go hard after Yoenis Cespedes or Justin Upton, the two other big names among free agent outfielders.
The Phillies also acquired Pittsburgh's Charlie Morton.
