Per just about every MLB writer worth their weight in the industry, the Indians and Reds are nearing the completion of a trade that would send Shin-Soo Choo and another, unnamed, player to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for outfielder Drew Stubbs and shortstop prospect Didi Gregorius. Some believe that the Indians would then trade Gregorius to the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for starting pitching help, with Tyler Skaggs and Trevor Bauer being the chief targets. Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com had the story first.
Nothing is complete yet, however, there seems to be a lot of buzz about this story and the hold-up is likely the second deal with the Indians and Diamondbacks. If Stubbs and Gregorius are the return, and no other deal is complete, the Indians will get a player widely regarded as a fourth outfielder and a shortstop with a tremendous glove and a bat that's a work in progress. Stubbs, who has a .241/.312/.386/.698 slash line in nearly 1800 at bats, is coming off a season where he batted just .214 and struck out 166 times in 493 at bats. In 2011, Stubbs struck out 205 times in 604 at bats. He has stolen at least 30 bases in each of the last three seasons, with 40 swipes in 2011. Gregorius, who made his Major League debut last season, has a career .699 OPS in the minors. He only has 48 games of experience in Triple-A, so there's certainly a chance that he could develop more at the plate.
This is mostly just a small blurb to update what the Indians are doing. If something big does break, a front page article will certainly show up tonight.
