Indians rumors: Club targeting young pitching for Cabrera

Jeff Curry-US PRESSWIRE

Cleveland could find able trade partners in the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Cleveland Indians are targeting young pitching in exchange for Asdrubal Cabrera as they begin to field offers on the shortstop, reports Buster Olney of ESPN:

The Indians are rumored to be after help in the outfield and at first base in addition to the rotation, but believe that Cabrera can net them the young pitching help they seek. The Cardinals have a bevy of young pitching talent on their hands -- including Shelby Miller, Trevor Rosenthal, Lance Lynn and Joe Kelly -- and were rumored last week to have "real interest" in acquiring Cabrera, so St. Louis could be a potential landing spot for the switch-hitting shortstop.

The Oakland Athletics are a another team in the market for a shortstop with a wealth of young pitching, but it is believed that Billy Beane wants to hang on to his young starters.

Cabrera, 27, hit .270/.338/.423 with sixteen home runs in one hundred forty-three games for the Indians this year, earning a place on the All-Star team for the second-consecutive season.
