The Indians have interest in free agent left fielder Jason Bay, who was just released by the New York Mets, according to The Plain Dealer.
This isn't the first time the Tribe has tried to acquire Bay. A few years ago they came close to trading for him when he played for the Pirates.
Last year Bay hit .165 with 8 homers and 20 RBI's in 70 games.
Indians manager Terry Francona managed Bay in Boston in 2009, Bay's last productive year in the big leagues. That year Bay slugged 32 homers and 119 RBI's and made the American League All-Star team.
The paper also is reporting the Indians are trying to sign another former Red Sox slugger, Kevin Youkilis. The Indians made a run at Youkilis last year before Boston traded him to the White Sox.
