Buster Olney says Asdrubal Cabrera might be on the block.. here's a related link.
Tribe would probably want bullpen help, which the Reds might be able to spare if they think Broxton and Marshal are coming back. Or maybe the Indians want prospects.
Not sure if it's a good target for the Reds though, adds payroll, and perhaps he's on the decline.. Just throwing out a player that might be available. I believe the Indians have a good SS prospect and other SS options, so they probably wouldn't want Cozart back in the deal..
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
