Indians will never trade Aiken for rental. Maybe Naquin?

Considering Aiken is in a down year at 3-10 albeit with a 3.98 era and Lugo also really hasn't put things together and Bruce being a legitimate 40HR, 110 RBI guy, even for half a season it represents a big upgrade to cleveland's lineup. We've seen with JD Martinez what someone in the realm of Bruce will cost and this is a slightly lower value than what the DBacks gave up for him.

I know met fans on this site aren't super realistic sometimes but this is very fair considering Bruce having a good year, the indians having multiple injuries in the outfield with Chisenhall and Jackson (even with Zimmer coming on strong) and the tribe needing someone to put them over the edge. Both prospects are probably 2 years at least from the majors so i felt this was very fair.
