Teams Scouting Griffey, Dunn

If the Reds slip out of contention in May, Walt Jocketty might begin to field offers for corner outfielders Ken Griffey Jr. and Adam Dunn.  Both are paid well and have at least some control over trade destinations.  According to MLB.com's Jim Molony, "a few teams are having their scouts keep an eye" on the pair in case they become available.

The standard speculation for Griffey is that he could be traded back to Seattle after he gets his 600th home run with the Reds.  Junior might be a nice boost in right field for the Ms if Wladimir Balentien needs time to adjust.  I doubt the Mariners would give up Jeff Clement for Griffey though.  There's been some Chicago speculation, never mind that both the Cubs and Sox are set at the corner outfield positions.

Dunn would help the Padres, who are last in baseball in both OBP and SLG.  The Jays, Mets, or Indians could also make sense.
