The Cleveland Indians have already traded Yan Gomes. Now fans are wondering if one of the starting pitchers will be the next to go.

It was a busy weekend for football fans in Ohio.

Those who only follow the Cleveland Indians got their share of excitement when Yan Gomes was traded on Friday, and the move may have caused some to tune out any offseason news for a few days.

The rumors continued to flow anyway, including one involving Corey Kluber.

At this point in the offseason we are used to the language. The two teams have talked, which is likely going on between the Indians and several other teams in the league.

The interesting part with the New York Mets is the connection between Kluber and Mickey Callaway. The former Indians pitching coach may convince his front office to make a big deal for his former ace.

This talk comes on the heels of news that Carlos Carrasco may be receiving an extension with the team.

And given Trevor Bauer‘s desire not to go anywhere on a long-term deal, Kluber could be a focal point for teams looking to find a top pitcher for 2019 and beyond.

Most teams in the league would love to have Kluber. The Mets simply stand out due to the fact Callaway is the manager.

I am still hesitant to believe the Indians would make such a move unless they got better in the deal. The Gomes deal is a different story, as it appears the team was looking to cut salary at a position that wouldn’t result in a major loss of value to the team as a whole.

Next. The odd feeling with the Yan Gomes trade. dark

The Kluber rumors will continue to flow until he is either moved or the team flat out says he won’t be, but keep an eye on the Mets as a team that continues pursuing him.
