Could someone actually be interested in Indians’ starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez? The San Diego Union-Tribune’s Bill Center says yes. His article today states that the Padres might have interest in Ubaldo because of his durability over the past few seasons.
“Acquiring Jimenez would take a trade with Cleveland. And the Indians seem ready to discuss a trade involving Jimenez. But what would it take? And what are the Padres offering?
The Padres have depth at the corner outfield slots, in the bullpen and at middle infield. The names most often mentioned as possible trade chips are relief pitchers Luke Gregerson and Joe Thatcher and outfielder-first baseman Jesus Guzman.”
Shh, nobody tell the Padres that he’s worthless.
