Indians, Mariners among teams after Willingham
The Indians and Mariners are believed to be among a narrowing group of teams in the hunt for free-agent outfielder Josh Willingham. A source shot down one report claiming Cleveland and Seattle were the front-runners, though.
The Indians, who are in the market for a right-handed hitter with power, have yet to make an official offer to Willingham’s camp. He will likely command at least a two-year deal, though seeking three years is a likely scenario.
The Twins and Rockies have also been linked to the 32-year-old Willingham, who hit .246/.332/.477 with 29 homers and 98 RBIs in 136 games with the A’s last season.
