RUPP TO THE CLEVELAND INDIANS
The Indians lead the AL Central by six games in the loss column over Detroit, eight games ahead of the defending World Series champion Kansas City Royals.
But the Tribe is getting little from their backstops. Currently on the 15-day DL, 28-year old starter Yan Gomes is hitting for just a .165/.198/.313 slash line.
Rupp would absolutely upgrade the Indians, and again, this was a team that we mentioned for Ruiz earlier. In fact, either Phillies catcher could step in and become an improvement as the Indians starting receiver.
24-year old pitcher Adam Plutko could be a fair and nice pickup in exchange for Rupp.
