The teams involved in bidding with Cleveland for starter Mike Clevinger were told to expect Cleveland to make their final decision Monday— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) August 31, 2020
The Indians have been willing to discuss Francisco Lindor with teams as well, but price is so high there other teams see that as a long shot. Clevinger, while cheaper and contractually tied to team longer, is more replaceable. Indians are in 1st so they’d want big leaguers back!— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) August 30, 2020
