Here are some non A-Rod/Lowell rumors from today…
- MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy says the Brewers are interested in Jason Kendall. Kendall is somehow seeking a two-year deal. The Rockies are in on him as well. The Brewers still have Johnny Estrada, but they’re not happy with him. He could be traded or non-tendered.
- WGN Radio’s Dave Kaplan reported that the Cubs could complete a contract with second baseman Kaz Matsui this week. It’d be a multiyear deal; not sure if the Cubs would have to go three years on it. This would be an indefensible signing. UPDATE: A source of Troy E. Renck’s believes the Cubs may have offered something close to three years, $14.4MM.
- East Windup Chronicle profiles free agent reliever Kazuo Fukumori. The Rockies, Royals, Rays, and Red Sox are said to be interested in him.
