MLB Trade Rumors: Ubaldo Jiménez Pursued By Red Sox, Reds, Indians

The Ubaldo Jimenez situation has been a tough one to figure out. For a time, it seemed like the Rockies were just floating his name to measure his value, and weren't serious about moving him. Then there were whispers that the Rockies really wanted to find a deal. Then the talk was that the Rockies' asking price remained unreasonable. So it hasn't been easy to nail down whether the Rockies want to move Jimenez or not.

But if nothing else, they have budged. Reports Jon Heyman:

price on ubaldo down a tad. not asking for banuelos now. betances, montero, nova would work. nyy still says no.

So the Rockies have apparently lowered the asking price a little bit. They aren't making any progress with the Yankees, but a handful of other teams remain interested. Jon Morosi:

, , are still on Jimenez, sources tell . aren’t having active talks with at this time.

The Red Sox are eager to find a starter and may have backed off Erik Bedard after his poor start on Friday. The Reds have a million prospects, although they're drifting from contention and consider a few of their youngsters untouchable. And the Indians definitely have the prospects to get Jimenez if they're willing to make a splash, which they may or may not be. All of these teams make sense.

As for the Yankees, they could re-emerge as a serious suitor at any time, as they have the pieces. With fewer than 24 hours to go until the deadline, you have not heard the last of Ubaldo Jimenez trade rumors.
