The Indians have marketable veterans aside from C.C. Sabathia. Take third baseman Casey Blake, who's hitting .353/.414/.529 since the beginning of June. He's owed about $2.8MM for the remainder of the season and figures to draw decent trade attention.
Baseball Prospectus' Will Carroll says "there's some rumor that Tampa Bay has interest" in Blake. Blake could fill the role of right-handed hitting right fielder. The Rays have also been linked to outfielders Matt Murton and Xavier Nady.
Blake has also drawn interest from the Dodgers, who wanted to get him in a C.C. Sabathia deal.
