Heyman’s Latest: Griffey, Garcia, Sabathia

SI.com’s Jon Heyman has a new column up.

  • Ken Griffey Jr. is reportedly telling friends that the Rays are his preference if he is to be traded.  He’d be close to his Orlando home, always a major consideration for him.  Heyman says Junior would prefer to be dealt after the All-Star game.  It’s not known whether the Rays have interest in Griffey, though.  Jayson Stark suggested yesterday that Griffey could sign there as a free agent next year.
  • Freddy Garcia hit 85 mph in a recent session.  It’s been suggested he could be in the Majors by late August.
  • Heyman talked to a "hopeful competing GM" who expects C.C. Sabathia to be traded.
