The Cardinals are interested in Oakland’s Brian Fuentes, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman.
He’ll come cheap. The A’s designated Fuentes for assignment last week after receiving no interest on the trade market. The 36-year-old lefty reliever has a 6.84 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 25 innings this season. He is still owed more than $3 million on his contract, including a $500,000 buyout on his $6.5 million club option for next year.
