Baez To Dodgers?

Tony Jackson of the Los Angeles Daily News reported a new Danys Baez rumor today.  Apparently, the Dodgers have inquired on him given Eric Gagne‘s impending free agency.  Of course, Baez is due for a big contract himself when he hits free agency after 2006.

These talks are still preliminary, but I was able to uncover some more info from a source close to the Devil Rays.  Word from that end is that Edwin Jackson and Dioner Navarro would go to Tampa Bay in a deal for Baez and Toby Hall.  The Dodgers may find Navarro expendable with top prospect Russell Martin perhaps a year away.

As mentioned on this site a week ago, the Baez for Aaron Heilman rumor wasn’t equal value for the Mets.  This possibility seems more reasonable to me.
