Here's a look at the latest Full Count from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports..
- The Indians plans to entertain trade offers for Shin-Soo Choo, Justin Masterson, and others won't change if they hire Terry Francona as manager. The Tribe doesn't have to shed payroll and their commitments for 2013 are minimal. The idea of acquiring additional young talent would make sense anyway as Francona helped develop several young stars in Boston. It's just another reason as to why Tito would almost certainly get a long-term contract.
- There's only a 50/50 chance that Jim Tracy will return as the Rockies skipper, despite his "handshake agreement" for 2013. With the Rockies' plan to hire Mark Wiley as the pitching coordinator, it may serve them to also get a pitching-minded manager.
- The Angels much decide whether to exercise club options on Dan Haren ($15.5MM) and Ervin Santana ($13MM). The Halos could decline both and make qualifying offers to both hurlers, putting them in position to potentially rake in draft pick compensation. It would be something of a gamble to risk having one or both back one a one-year, ~$13MM deal, but neither pitcher would be overly tough to trade on a one-year pact.
- Omar Vizquel's critical comments of John Farrell have shed light on what has become a tough situation in Toronto. Farrell could be even more open to parting ways with the club and the Blue Jays might be on the same wavelength. Rosenthal opines that the only thing left to sort out might be the club's compensation deal with the Red Sox.
