Dotel Would Like Contract Extension

While Octavio Dotel is very likely to be traded by the Royals, he said yesterday that he'd like to talk about a contract extension to stay.  It's possible but doesn't seem likely.

Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star says Dotel would probably look for something around three years, $21MM, which the Royals could afford.  Locking him in would allow Joakim Soria or Zack Greinke to move to the rotation.

It still looks like Dotel will end up a Dodger or Indian by Tuesday though.  The names we've heard so far include Franklin Gutierrez, Ben Francisco, Chin-Ling Hu, and Tony Abreu
