Tim Brown’s Latest: Cordero, Quentin

UPDATE: You can throw Conor Jackson into the mix along with Quentin.

Yahoo’s Tim Brown has some new rumors and info:

  • Plan B if the Red Sox can’t get Eric Gagne: Washington’s Chad Cordero.  It seems Wily Mo Pena would be a part of that, but I imagine Jim Bowden would want a top prospect as well.
  • The Diamondbacks are shopping Carlos Quentin for a starting pitcher; the Indians and Nationals have interest.  Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says the Indians are willing to deal Cliff Lee, so maybe there’s a match there.  And keep in mind that former Diamondbacks Director of Scouting Mike Rizzo now works as the Nationals’ Assistant GM and VP of Baseball Operations.  Rizzo still has a lot of Arizona connections, and he definitely loves Quentin.
  • Interestingly, Will Carroll indicates that Justin Upton may be on the verge of a callup
