And here's the rumors swirling this morning, courtesy MLB Trade Rumors.com:
The Dodgers are looking at a multitude of offensive options, perhaps as many as 10. Toronto always has liked the native Canadian. And the Giants have issues at first base, though interestingly they seem more focused on their outfield at the moment.
The Twins seem to have more appetite to trade Morneau than Josh Willingham or Denard Span. Morneau has about $19 million left on his contract through next year.
At least the Dodgers, Blue Jays and Giants appear to have some interest in Twins first baseman Justin Morneau, who is making a nice comeback this year.
James Loney is showing a bit of life over there at first, going 7-for-18 (.389) with one double and two RBI in the last seven days. That said, he's batting .257 on the year with a .647 OPS. Morneau is batting .260 on the year with a .780 OPS (down from his career .846 OPS).
Meanwhile, up north, the Giants are looking for another outfielder, according to Buster Olney, who says "it would be a shocker" if they didn't pick one up. Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence are the names being knocked around.
And finally, the Giants are going after reliever Brandon League, but we're inquiring as well (hopefully if for nothing more than to drive the price up).
