Dubious Dunn Rumor

http://www.gothambaseball.com/news/1162412243.php

Reds Like Gotham's Kids

The Reds are said to looking to move Adam Dunn, and if they are, it appears that they have interest in both the Mets and Yankees' young prospects.

Their logic?  Both the Mets and Yankees have expressed an interest in the young slugger in the past, and while they haven't in awhile, one industry source stated Wednesday that "(the Mets and Yankees) are going to find that teams are going to be very difficult to deal with this offseason.  (Dunn) might be a guy they consider when they realize what's out there, and what it's going to cost."

The Reds are most interested in young arms and players that are contact-type hitters, guys who project to strikeout less than 90-100 times a season, but show the ability to produce runs. The club is also trying to improve its overall defense.

The local players/prospects discussed in internal sessions are believed to be, but not limited to the following:

Yankees

Tyler Clippard

Sean Henn

Brian Bruney

Brett Gardner

Cody Ehlers

Marcos Vechionacci

Mets

Brian Bannister

Mike Devaney

Henry Owens

Carlos Gomez

Anderson Hernandez

Mike Carp

---------------------------------

Gotham Baseball doesn't have a strong track record of rumor mongering, so there's not much to this. It does reinforce what we've suspected, that Dunn is being shopped by Kriv.
