Despite reports last week that Ubaldo Jimenez was likely to stay in Colorado, it appears that there's a good chance that Jimenez won't be a member of the Colorado Rockies next week. Joel Sherman reported on Tuesday that the Rockies "want to find a trade" for Jimenez. This is in conjunction with Jon Paul Morosi's report that there is a 50/50 chance that Jimenez is dealt before the trading deadline.
As is tradition, the Yankees and Red Sox are among the teams available in Jimenez. The Rangers, Reds, Blue Jays and Tigers have also been linked to Jimenez. Danny Knobler of CBS Sports believes that the Yankees have the best chance of acquiring Jimenez if he is indeed dealt.
The Rockies are going to ask for the moon in return for Jimenez - and rightfully so. If the Rangers are going to be serious players for Jimenez, Martin Perez would almost certainly have to be involved as well as other top organizational prospects.
