The Cleveland Indians remain on the outskirts of the American League playoff chase heading towards the All-Star break, and that could be enough to turn the team into sellers in advance of the July 31st MLB trade deadline.
According to Jim Ingraham of The News-Herald, the two names that the team would love to utilize as trade chips are DH/1B/OF Nick Swisher and OF Michael Bourn:
Swisher has sat out all but 30 games this season as he continues his recovery process from offseason double knee surgery. His current stint on the disabled list is due to left knee inflammation.
Bourn has been a mess at the plate all season long, posting .228/.297/.276 slash line with no home runs and 18 RBIs in 76 games played.
