Longtime Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo is drawing interest as the July 31 MLB trade deadline draws closer.

According to CBS Sports baseball insider Jon Heyman, the Cleveland Indians have discussed the possibility of acquiring the 27-year-old right-hander this summer:

The Indians seek a starting pitcher and have held discussions about Matt Garza and Yovani Gallardo.

It's no surprise the Indians would like to add a starter. The twist is that they are limiting themselves to a top-of-the-rotation type.

...for now, Garza and Gallardo are the Indians' main and only pitchers of interest.
