Any decent center fielders out there for trade? It’s a thin market; let’s explore.
- Coco Crisp, Red Sox. Believe it not, he’s the best-hitting CF available. Crisp is signed through ’09. Brandon Moss and Bobby Kielty are both on minor league rehab assignments. When they’re healthy, Crisp trade talks may resume.
- Ryan Freel, Reds. Freel is a strong candidate to be moved, if a team will take on his $4MM salary for ’09. I’m sure Corey Patterson is available too.
- Willy Taveras, Rockies. Once Matt Holliday and Brad Hawpe return, the Rockies could entertain offers for Taveras. The Rox could also move Cory Sullivan.
- David DeJesus, Royals. DeJesus isn’t hitting this month. He’s locked up cheaply through 2010, which is probably a plus.
