If it's a three-way, I'm guessing Tampa is looking to horde prospects and save money. Since KC is also looking to save some cash, I could see the following work out:
Kansas City deals Alex Gordon to Cincinnati.
Tampa deals James Shields to Kansas City.
Cincinnati deals Devin Mesoraco and DiDi Gregorius to Tampa, with the understanding that Ben Zobrist moves back to the OF or 2B.
