Ken Griffey Jr. Rumors: Monday

5:01pm: According to MLB.com’s Mark Bowman, Griffey met with Braves GM Frank Wren earlier today.  It sounds like Junior will be making his decision on Tuesday.

Wren is scheduled to meet with Griffey’s agent, Brian Goldberg, on Tuesday and in the hours that follow, the veteran outfielder will likely announce whether he’ll be playing for the Braves or Mariners this year, writes Bowman.

1:10pm: Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times has more on the topic.  He’s learned that Griffey will decide today or early tomorrow at the latest. 

10:00am: Over the weekend we learned that Ken Griffey Jr. is campaigning to play for the Braves, and they may be willing to offer him $1.5MM.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports says Griffey may decide today.  One of Rosenthal’s sources still believes it could go either way (Braves or Mariners).  Both teams are considering Griffey and Garret Anderson.
