Indians Looking For Offense

The Indians are "kicking the tires for offensive help," according to MLB.com's Anthony Castrovince (Twitter links). Cleveland can add some salary - though Carlos Beltran is probably not a realistic target - and remains reluctant to surrender top prospects in trades.

Indians president Mark Shapiro said on Twitter today that GM Chris Antonetti and his staff spent the All-Star break "burning up phone lines" to make sense of the trade market and discuss possible deals. Though the market is developing slowly, the Indians are looking at "every opportunity" to improve, accoridng to Shapiro.

The Indians, who are second in the AL Central with a 47-42 record, rank seventh in the American League with 386 runs scored. They are a logical suitor for a corner outfielder, since Shin-Soo Choo is on the disabled list and probably won't return to the lineup before late-August. Austin Kearns, Travis Buck and Michael Brantley are currently covering left and right for the Indians.
