Indians trade Bauer in three-team blockbuster

Just days after he launched a ball over the center field wall because he was being taken out due to a awful start, Bauer will never pitch for the Cleveland Indians again. The 21-year-old is the No. 1 prospect in Cincinnati's system.

Now, Bauer is reportedly facing a fine, but not a suspension, for his actions.

Bauer exchanged hugs with several teammates in the clubhouse following Cleveland's 2-0 loss to Houston before he departed around 10:45 p.m. That's good news for the Indians, or another team that acquires him before tomorrow's trade deadline.

"I'm going to miss all of my teammates here", Puig said after the game, according to Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. "This part of the year has been unbelievable for me, being on this team with my teammates and in this city. We stay next door - we're going to Cleveland". "We already had a legit pitching staff, it just got more legit".

The Cuban-born outfielder has a career.275 average with 130 homers and 391 RBIs in 812 games.

The victims have been identified as American Chynna Deese , 24, Australian Lucas Fowler , 23, and Leonard Dyck, 64, of Vancouver. The police force said Thursday that Bryer Schmegelsky , 18, and Kam McLeod , 19, were seen twice in the Gillam, Man., area.


Bauer, 28, was thought by some to be a favorite for the American League Cy Young Award prior to the start of the season, but has had an inconsistent showing with a 9-8 record and a 3.79 ERA in 24 starts for the Tribe. The downside is Bauer is only signed through this year and will be a free agent.

Cleveland has been looking to add power to its lineup and Puig and Reyes will help.

In the ninth inning, Reds reliever Amir Garrett rushed the Pirates' dugout and threw punches, starting a brawl prolonged by Puig.

Reyes is in the midst of a breakout season for San Diego.

Reyes, a rising star for the Padres, broke through past year thanks to injuries to Will Myers and Hunter Renfroe, making four trips between San Diego and Triple-A El Paso but quickly proving his value at the plate down the stretch.
