SI.com’s Jon Heyman recently wrote that Ken Griffey Jr. was telling friends he was monitoring the Rays as a possible destination. Heyman’s source indicated Junior would consider waiving his no-trade rights to play near his Orlando-area home. Heyman admitted that no serious trade talks have occurred, though.
Today, Griffey’s agent Brian Goldberg apparently debunked the story. Goldberg considers it to be "a media member thinking out loud." He adds that Griffey has not been approached with any trade proposals, though no one was claiming that.
