Buster Olney of ESPN reports that the Indians are “unlikely” to trade outfielder Shin-Soo Choo.
“They’d need the perfect offer to make it happen,” writes Olney. And that sort of proposal hasn’t yet crossed their desk. Choo, 30, has posted a cool .291/.378/.484 batting line with 12 home runs and 39 RBI in 96 games this season. He’s under contract with Cleveland through 2013. The Pirates had expressed some interest.
