The Cleveland Indians have found some outfield help. And they went within their own division to do so.

According to Robert Murray of The Athletic, the Indians have acquired outfielder Leonys Martin from the Detroit Tigers in exchange for minor league shortstop Willi Castro. Appearing in 78 games this season, the 30-year-old Martin has hit for a .251 average to go along with nine home runs, 29 RBIs and seven stolen bases.

It's been no secret Cleveland has been hoping to bolster its outfield depth prior to Tuesday's 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline, with injuries having depleted the unit over the course of the 2018 season. Having already lost Bradley Zimmer for the season and Lonnie Chisenhall for an extended period of time, the Indians' outfield took another hit over the weekend when Tyler Naquin when on the disabled list with a hip strain.
