Default Arizona could get nothing going

Patrick Smith/Getty ImagesThrough Saturday Chris Rusin Jersey , 18 Major League Baseball teams had winning percentages of .500 or better. It's an unusual year in the standings, as a handful of struggling clubs have been playing out the string since late April.On the flip side, the talent gap is creating an interesting playoff race down the stretch. Of note, five teams are within 3.5 games of each other for the second National League wild-card spot.That may create an intense buildup to the non-waiver trade deadline at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. The action has already been fast and furious, as many notable names have changed cities.Cleveland Indians Looking to Add OutfielderThe Cleveland Indians can sleepwalk to the American League Central title. The four other teams in the division are in various stages of rebuilding, and three of them are 16 games under .500 or worse. The fourth team, the Minnesota Twins, is 48-55.While the Tribe can win their division with their roster, they are a leg behind the American League's elite.The Indians traded for some bullpen help, with the star piece there being former San Diego Padres left-hander Brad Hand.Now they must look to solidify the outfield, which has seen its share of injuries and inconsistent play outside left fielder Michael Brantley.Per Nick Cafardo of theBoston Globe (h/t Connor Byrne ofMLB Trade Rumors), the Indians are looking into Toronto Blue JaysoutfielderCurtis Granderson, Cincinnati Redscenter fielderBilly Hamiltonand Miami Marlins infielder/outfielderDerek Dietrich.Granderson could form a solid platoon with Brandon Guyer in right field, with the former facing right-handers and the latter taking on southpaws. At 37, however, Granderson is at the back end of his career, and he's a free agent after this season. Is Cleveland willing to acquire what may be a rental even though Granderson has a .784 OPSagainstrighties?Hamilton would shore up the team's defense in center field; he's amassed a 6.7 defensive WARduring his career,per Baseball Reference, and can do things like this:Cincinnati Reds RedsICYMI: Billy Hamilton made a grab with a 2% catch probability. Because of course he does. #Statcast ByhV3W9KU2 iRE0tYr5RCHowever, Hamilton struggles at the dish, and he's managing just a .602 OPS this year. He's also on pace to finish far below his usual stolen-base par鈥攈e has22 through Saturdaycompared to 56-plus each of the past four full seasons).Dietrich may be the best pickup of the aforementioned players. He can play infield or outfield and is the best hitter from this trio. For the season http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/aut...e-davis-jersey , the Miami Marlin has hit 13 home runs and earned an .802 OPS. If the Tribe can pull it off, Dietrich should be the No. 1 target. Brian DozierThe Minnesota Twins recently moved infielder Eduardo Escobar to the Arizona Diamondbacks. That, in essence, was a waving of the white flag, It thus figures that they would look to trade other players prior to the non-waiver trade deadline.Per Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Twins second baseman Brian Dozier could be next,and the San Francisco Giants and Cleveland Indians are involved in talks:Mike Berardino MikeBerardinoTwo more potential landing spots for Brian Dozier, per sources: #SFGiants and #Indians. Both clubs have been scouting #mntwins 2B this week. Panik is on DL (groin) and Kipnis is having another down year (.629 OPS vs RHP). CLE still considering 2B/3B/OF options, I hear.
