Jarrod Washburn Rumors: Wednesday

6:41pm: Dan Graziano says the Yankees aren't looking at other starters.  They're waiting to see if the Mariners will drop their price on Washburn.  They may try to acquire him in August.

11:17am: SI.com's Jon Heyman says the Ms are asking for quite a bit for Washburn - two of one NL team's top prospects, for example.  Meanwhile, Buster Olney talked to one exec who speculated that Washburn might make sense for the Mets.

9:42am: I spoke too soon - the Rockies are indeed interested in WashburnTim Redding and Josh Fogg are a couple other names on the radar.

Ken Rosenthal characterizes the Fogg interest as legit, but feels that the Ms are just trying to stir Colorado's interest in Washburn.

9:29am: According to Ken Davidoff of Newsday, the Yankees' trade talks for Jarrod Washburn are dead.  The Yanks will turn to Ian Kennedy, Phil Hughes, and maybe Freddy Garcia.  They can also rekindle the Washburn talks in August if they think he will clear waivers (most do).

I am surprised other teams aren't looking more seriously at Washburn given the weak market for starting pitching.  The Rockies, White Sox, and Mets would all make sense.
