Rosenthal's Latest: Furcal, Bradley, Greinke

Another day, another Ken Rosenthal column.

  • The A's have payroll flexibility, and are expressing "strong interest" in free agent shortstop Rafael FurcalBobby Crosby is set to earn $5.25MM in '09, but it makes sense to upgrade.
  • Contrary to previous reports, Rosenthal says the Tigers are not in on Furcal.  They'll also pass on Francisco Rodriguez, which was expected.
  • Rosenthal discusses possible fits for Milton Bradley, including the Rays, Rangers, Blue Jays, Mets, Cardinals, and Phillies.  It will be hard to overlook the health risk and give Bradley a three-year deal, especially for an NL club.
  • Rosenthal confirms interest in Khalil Greene from the Orioles and Reds.  The Blue Jays and Tigers have also been mentioned.
  • There's no way the Phillies can afford Manny Ramirez; a look at their '09 commitments makes that clear.
  • The Royals hope to sign Zack Greinke and Alex Gordon to long-term extensions.  Rosenthal feels trade discussions could pick up for Greinke if the Royals can't sign him.  Keith Law said the same yesterday.
  • The Padres will exercise Brian Giles' $9MM option in the next day or two.
