It appears the Cleveland Indians might not be done wheeling and dealing.

The Indians earlier this week carried out what’s already been an active Major League Baseball offseason by trading two-time American League Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber to the Texas Rangers. Now, Cleveland reportedly is at least entertaining the idea of shipping away another one of its top players.

The Tribe reportedly has discussed a possible Francisco Lindor trade with the in-state rival Cincinnati Reds, according to’s Mark Feinsand. Feinsand on Thursday suggested who the Indians might pursue in a potential blockbuster and explained why the Reds would make sense as a trading partner.

Cincinnati suddenly is a team to keep an eye on as the 2020 season approaches. The club boasts a strong starting pitching rotation with Luis Castillo, Sonny Gray, Trevor Bauer and recently acquired Wade Miley, and it might just be an impact bat away from becoming a legitimate contender in the National League. Lindor would fill that void in spades, and he still has one year of arbitration left before being eligible to hit unrestricted free agency in 2022.

Given how things are shaking out, the NL Central might be the most exciting division race to watch in the upcoming campaign.
