    Jon Morosi ‏@jonmorosi
    Intra-division trades are not all that common during offseason, but keep an eye on Asdrubal Cabrera and Tigers. Price would be high, though.

    Well.

    We did get Mike Aviles so far. He's not bad, and can fill the gap at short if we do trade Asdrubal and we find out that Lindor isn't ready yet. I feel like the sole reason we got Mike is so that we could further explore trading Asdrubal.

    We have serious interest in Shane Victorino

    Shane Victorino Rumors: Monday

    By Luke Adams [December 3 at 12:29pm CST]

    12:29pm: Victorino has multiple three-year offers on the table, and even a four-year offer, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports (Twitter link).

    12:19pm: Victorino is believed to be seeking a three-year deal worth about $10MM annually, says Lauber (via Twitter).

    12:11pm: The market for Victorino has yet to be fully defined, with the Indians one of many teams still in the running, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Victorino could decide to wait out deals for Michael Bourn and/or Angel Pagan if there are teams that view him as a fallback option, though that's just my speculation.

    12:05pm: While the Red Sox have discussed the possibility of signing Shane Victorino, there's another club that appears more interested in the former Phillie, according to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald. Lauber tweets that the Indians are "said to have serious interest" in Victorino.

    The Indians were one of seven teams said to be interested in Victorino as of last Monday, though their interest wasn't classified as any more serious than the other clubs' at that point. The Rangers, Yankees, Giants, Rays, Red Sox and Reds were the other teams mentioned as potential suitors, with Jon Heyman of CBS Sports noting that multiple clubs were willing to offer three years.

    Indians lost out on James Loney before he signed with the Rays.

    Knowing James personally, it gives me less faith in the Indians direction.

    We'll see, maybe the Rays can teach him some drive and work ethic. Or to stop turning his hips so early and losing all of his power.

    Last in, first out kind of guy who has some simple problems with his swing that have gone unfixed.

    Ton of potential there though. Just not sure he's motivated to reach it.

    Loney would have been the rich man's version of Kotchman. Hits for a little better average, gold glove defense.

    I think he meant please explain the part where you said you knew Loney personally

    Victorino is a huge upgrade from what we've seen in the outfield with Duncan and the rest of the platoon.

    Wasn't James Loneys name thrown around in a trade here a few years back?

    Yes it was... A few years back the Dodgers offered him in a deal for Cliff Lee and Victor...we would've also received a young pitcher by the name of...Clayton Kershaw.

    Yep, still laughing at the thought of James Loney.

    @DodgersGM: James Loney to sign a 1-year/$2MM deal with the #Rays. Says he's looking forward to grounding into double plays on AstroTurf.
