While the entire baseball world waits to see where stars like Bryce Harper and Manny Machado will be suiting up in 2019, a deal for one of the best pitchers in the game today may be taking place soon - and fans in Cleveland aren’t going to like it! According to a Yahoo! Sports report, Indians ace Corey Kluber may be heading to the West Coast soon. According to MLB Network’s Jon Morosi, the Los Angeles Dodgers might be the favorite to land him at this point.

Kluber on the move?

The Tribe has seemed to make it clear that they are interested in seeing what they can get in return for the Cy Young winner, as rumors surrounding a Kluber deal have been flying around since the 2018 season ended.

Morosi also added that Cleveland wants a young outfielder who can hit in return for Kluber - which most likely means Los Angeles would have to depart with their top prospect in Alex Verdugo.

Other teams rumored to have a shot at landing the hard-throwing right-hander include the New York Yankees and Milwaukee Brewers.

Last season, Kluber finished the year 20-7 with a 2.89 ERA. The 32-year-old right-hander has spent his entire career with the Indians, compiling a 96-55 record along with a 3.09 ERA. When you have a pitcher that produces numbers that good, you have to get something big in return.

Cruz AL Central bound?

Now, on to Nelson Cruz. This guy just never slows down. The right-handed slugger is currently on the free agent market and it seems that several teams already have serious interest in acquiring his services. According to an ESPN report, the Minnesota Twins are one of the teams “in the mix” for former Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz, according to MLB insider Jon Heyman.

Heyman indicated on Monday afternoon, via Twitter, that the Twins, along with the Houston Astros, Tampa Bay Rays, and possibly the Chicago White Sox are all interested in the long-time veteran.

Cruz has spent the last four seasons with the Seattle Mariners. but it seems his time there is over. Last season, Cruz once again put up impressive numbers, as his stat line finished .256/.342/.509 with 37 home runs. One big concern for the Twins and all others interested in Cruz could be that he is 38 years old - but he sure plays a lot younger. Cruz has been one of the most solid hitters in the game for the past decade and any team in need of some punch should be more than interested in giving him a shot.

Cruz began his career back in 2005 with the Milwaukee Brewers before heading to the Texas Rangers. After that, he had a brief stop in Baltimore before his most current stay in Seattle.
