Indians Rumors: Ryan Ludwick, Chris Iannetta

Just yesterday, the Cleveland Indians proved to be both buyers and sellers on the trade market, but they're apparently not done even as we close in on today's trade deadline. Here are the latest rumors and reports on Cleveland's trade action:

  • The Indians, along with the Blue Jays, have shown interest in Rockies catcher Chris Iannetta, according to Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun. For a long time now, outside observers have wondered why the Rockies don't fully appreciate their power-hitting, walk-inducing backstop, and these kinds of rumors only support that notion. Among all MLB catchers with 300+ plate appearances, Iannetta has the highest walk rate and the fifth-highest isolated power.
  • The Indians have been considered the front-runner for San Diego outiflelder Ryan Ludwick, but Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports notes that the Pirates are still in the mix. With Grady Sizemore and Shin-Soo Choo on the disabled list, the Indians continue to search for outfield help; they're likely underwhelmed by the current foursome of Michael Brantley, Kosuke Fukudome, Ezequiel Carrera and Austin Kearns.
