— Player Notes
Advice: They're also in on trade talks for Mark Trumbo, as Rosenthal notes that the D'Backs are "active on multiple fronts." He says Arizona could potentially sign Choo and trade for a pitcher or trade for Trumbo and sign a free agent pitcher. Rosenthal reported earlier Monday that the Choo negotiations "appear to be reaching a critical stage." The Rangers are also in on him, with additional clubs likely in the mix.

Advice: Rosenthal says the Rangers and "at least one other club" are in. It could be the Tigers and/or Mariners, as both teams have often been mentioned as a possible landing spots for the outfielder. Choo probably won't land a deal as rich as Jacoby Ellsbury's, but he'll have no trouble getting one north of $100 million.

Advice: The Orioles are also in the market for a designated hitter, a closer and perhaps a starting pitcher, so it remains a long shot that they'd cough up more than $100 million to procure Choo. Heyman also mentions Nelson Cruz as a possible fit for the O's, and his power would play well in the friendly confines of Camden Yards.

Advice: With the types of dollars and long-term contracts that are being thrown around this offseason, there simply isn't room in the budget for the Reds to hand Choo over $100 million. The Tigers, Rangers, Red Sox and Mariners appear to be the most likely landing spots for the 31-year-old outfielder.

Advice: The M's just forked over $240 million for Robinson Cano, but if they really want to contend they still need to add more talent. Adding one of the aforementioned outfielders would be a start, and they're also expected to pursue a trade for David Price. Choo is also receiving plenty of interest from the Tigers and Red Sox.

Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported the same earlier this week. Gammons was also told by Choo's agent, Scott Boras, that the outfielder's negotiations "could move quickly." The Tigers are also in hard on Choo, and the Yankees have some interest that might escalate should they lose out on Robinson Cano. Choo should get a deal well over $100 million.

Advice: Marchand doesn't see it happening now that the Yankees have signed Jacoby Ellsbury, but perhaps the team is putting this out there as some sort of leverage against Robinson Cano. Choo is more likely to sign elsewhere, with the Rangers, Tigers, Red Sox, and Mariners among the possible landing spots.Rotoworld
Advice: He notes, however, that Choo is a "longshot" to sign with the Rangers and the odds likely became longer following the Jacoby Ellsbury deal. Choo is receiving significant interest from the Tigers, Red Sox and Mariners, among others.

Advice: It's become apparent that with the Prince Fielder and Doug Fister trades, the Tigers were clearing some payroll space for their next big move. Choo would certainly qualify, as he's surely going to command a contract over $100 million. The Yankees, Rangers and Mariners are three other teams known to have interest in the OBP machine.
