Hot Stove Tracker: Dodgers in, Angels out in trade talks for Indians’ Corey Kluber

One of the most talked about names on the trade market this week has been two-time AL Cy Young winner Corey Kluber. The long-time Cleveland Indians ace has been made available in talks and reports on Saturday suggested several teams were showing interest.

However, as The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, one main suitor has also dropped out of the race,.

...

As for the Los Angeles Dodgers, they are now among the teams in the mix.

...

MLB’s Network’s Jon Heyman says the San Diego Padres and Texas Rangers are involved as well.

So, with all these big names signed quickly, how do you suppose the hot-stove season will go for everyone else?

Apparently the Dodgers are out too, as according to MLBTR Kluber's moments away from becoming a Ranger.

A reliever prospect and a mediocre starting outfielder. I know that Kluber is expensive and coming off an injury, but I'm still a bit surprised.

I guess Cleveland is sticking with its strategy of trying to be just-barely-good-enough that did not quite work last year.

That's the best package they could get?! WTF?
