MLB Trade Rumors: Indians Don't Want Rental Players

The Cleveland Indians are wavering between buyers and sellers with every win and loss, but while their status at the trade deadline is unclear, one thing that is certain is that they don't want any rental players.

Of course, targeting such players means that Cleveland would likely have to give up more players or better prospects to acquire them. But that is not something unfamiliar to them at the trade deadline.

Last year, the Indians traded for Ubaldo Jimenez, who, like the players they are targeting, was under contract for more than the remainder of the season.
