Nobody knows of anything specific in the works, but here is some stuff that could happen (based on common sense):
I can see the Reds re-aquiring Broussard. In fact, I'd be in favor of it. My guess is that Krivsky's just gonna let this play out and see if he can claim him off waivers rather than trade for him. We'll see.
It would not be a surprise for the Indians to explore trade options for first baseman Ben Broussard, or even go so far as to release him. Broussard, who hit .255 with 19 home runs and 68 RBIs, will make $2.5 million this year
I could see the Reds making a run at Gregg, Walker, maybe German. Always looking for pitching, ya know.
Detroit's Franklyn German, San Francisco's Tyler Walker, Pittsburgh's Ryan Vogelsong, Boston's Matt Ginter, Cleveland's Steve Karsay and the Los Angeles Angels' Kevin Gregg - are all right-handers who are potentially available.
I would LOVE to get Heilman. I don't know what the Mets are looking for in return...my guess is that the asking price would be too high.
One source familiar with the situation said Aaron Heilman could ask the Mets to trade him somewhere he could start.
From what I've seen, Phillips could be a Krivsky kind of guy.
Utility man Brandon Phillips, who lost a competition with Ramon Vazquez, said the Indians told him he'd be traded in three days. "They won't do anything for three days in case somebody gets hurt," said Phillips. -- Cleveland Plain Dealer
From The Denver Post:
Haven't heard any thing at all on this one...would love to see Shealy in red.
A team such as Cincinnati, with Scott Hatteberg at first base, could have a place for (Ryan) Shealy.
From the Newark Star-Ledger:
This, of course was before LaRue's knee surgery. But I still think we could see LaRue move on before the All-Star break.
...the Reds are trying to trade catcher Jason LaRue for pitching help, since they believe (correctly) that they needed more than Arroyo
That's all I got. Nothing concrete...just a bunch of speculation. My gut tells me that Kriv is up to something, though.
