7/28 Fukudome to Indians?
Could the Cubs deal Kosuke Fukudome? Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweeted on Thursday that the Indians are talking to the Cubs about the right fielder. Danny Knobler of CBS Sports says the deal is “very close to happening.” Both Shin-Soo Choo and Grady Sizemore are on the disabled list, and the Tribe needs help. Fukudome, 34, is batting .273 with the Cubs. He’s owed about $4.7 million for the rest of the season. He has a limited no-trade clause but it’s not known which teams are on the list.
