Report Indians could bite on Bauer offers

Some outlets reported that the Indians also received left-handed pitching prospect Scott Moss, 24, from the Reds and 19-year-old minor league third baseman Victor Nova from the Padres, though others did not have those two players in their reports.

Bauer was 9-8 with a 3.79 ERA and 185 strikeouts for the Indians this season.

On Sunday, after giving up five runs in a fifth-inning meltdown against Kansas City, a frustrated Bauer whirled and launched a baseball out of the over the batter's eye and out of the ballpark before manager Terry Francona removed him from the game.

Bauer apologized for his actions after the game.

Following Cleveland's 2-0 home loss to the Houston Astros on Tuesday night, Bauer talked and exchanged hugs with several teammates in the clubhouse before departing around 10:45 p.m. The Reds traded top prospect Taylor Trammell to the Padres, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, and Yasiel Puig reportedly was part of the package headed to Cleveland.

In Puig, they let go of someone who didn't even last a year and is slashing.255/.305/.480 who is also only signed through the end of the year. The Indians will receive outfielder Yasiel Puig as part of the deal, according to MLB Network's Jon Heyman, along with Padres outfielder Franmil Reyes and pitcher Logan Allen.

Bauer, who won't be a free agent until after the 2020 season, is making $13 million this season.

The fiery right fielder has a history of on-field dustups with opponents and odd behavior in the clubhouse.

Most in Cincinnati will be silently celebrating Puig's departure after his involvement in a bench-clearing brawl in tonight's game. What Trammell's time in San Diego means for San Francisco will require a lot more patience, but that doesn't mean it'll be any less impactful. He's eligible for free agency after the 2019 season.

Their current rotation is made up of Luis Castillo (2.71 ERA), Sonny Gray (3.45), Anthony DeSclafani (4.01), Tanner Roark (3.95) and Tyler Mahle (4.93).
