Trumbo, 29, is eligible for his third year of salary arbitration this offseason and is projected to take home around $9 million in 2016. While the M's could easily tender a contract to Trumbo and still look to deal him, it's likely that they will do all they can to move the veteran sooner rather than later.
One team that's interested is the Colorado Rockies, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. While the Rockies' biggest need this offseason is pitching help, Trumbo would fill the team's hole at first base and provide more power to an already-loaded offense.
The M's have already made several moves this offseason but are showing no signs of slowing down. In addition to trying to trade Trumbo, Seattle is showing interest in free-agent outfielder Nori Aoki, Dutton also reports.
Here are a few other rumors making their way around the league today:
Shelby Miller: Miller remains among the hottest names on the market, with as many as 20 teams having checked in on the 25-year-old, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. The Atlanta Braves are believed to be asking for a huge haul for Miller, whose 6-17 record last season clearly isn't hurting his value. Heyman names the New York Yankees, Miami Marlins, Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants among the teams that have expressed interest in the right-hander. According to Heyman, who cites sources, the Braves asked the Yankees for prized right-hander Luis Severino in return and the Marlins for slugging outfielder Marcell Ozuna. However, no further details are provided.
Chris Young: More details have emerged on the multiyear deal Young reportedly reached with the Boston Red Sox on Monday. Young will receive a two-year guarantee from Boston and will earn $6.5 million per year, Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports.
Shane Victorino: The Cleveland Indians are showing the most interest in the free-agent outfielder, a source tells Rob Bradford of WEEI.com. Victorino, 35, hit .230 in 71 games with the Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels last season. The Indians will be without Michael Brantley to start the 2016 season, meaning they could stand to benefit from adding a veteran backup.
