Sale Traded to Red Sox, Who’s the Next Big Name to Move?
OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — The Cubs could use a closer, maybe someone like Wade Davis. Texas needs a center fielder, and most every team wants an extra arm.
So now that Chris Sale got traded, baseball executives are trying to figure out who's next. Baseball's winter meetings continue today in suburban Washington.
Andrew McCutchen is still available, perhaps the Tigers really would deal Miguel Cabrera or Justin Verlander, and Cincinnati speedster Billy Hamilton might be on the move.
There has also been no movement yet on star closers Aroldis Chapman and Kenley Jansen, though the New York Yankees are looking at both of them as they look to counter the Red Sox moves.
The Seattle Mariners so far have stayed quiet at the meetings, although they did deal to get Jean Segura and Mitch Haniger last month for Taijuan Walker and Ketel Marte. ESPN reports the Mariners have also been in talks to bring back slugger Mark Trumbo.
