Fox Sports' Jon Morosi reported on Wednesday that the Indians and Padres are discussing a deal that would send the two-time Cy Young victor to San Diego.

Unsurprisingly though, Cleveland's asking price has been large, so the two teams have not yet been able to come to an agreement.

Despite the various discussions being held between the Indians and other teams, no talks seem to have advanced much farther than preliminary discussions and basic groundwork of a deal.

The Padres would be willing to part with MLB-ready talent for Kluber.

US Retail Sales Grew 5.1 Percent This Holiday Season
Despite previously warning of a weaker-than-expected holiday season , Amazon said on Wednesday that it had another record stretch. Online pickups and mobile shopping have been popular options this holiday as chains look for new ways to reach shoppers.

With various National League clubs keeping tabs and holding discussions over the possibility of acquiring one of the game's best arms, the Padres will want to work quickly to ensure they hold an edge over their competitors.

The Indians cruised to an AL Central title last season and have won the division each of the last three seasons, but will have to weigh whether dealing their ace will impact that streak in 2019. A source said that could include outfielders Manuel Margot and Hunter Renfroe, as well as catcher Austin Hedges.

Cleveland likely would obtain at least one prospect as well, although shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. and lefty MacKenzie Gore (San Diego's top two prospects) are not expected to be involved in a Kluber deal.
