The Royals and Reds are interested in Melky Cabrera

I feel like Melky is going to be Reggie Sanders going forward. Competent journeyman who doesn’t stay in a place long and plays well for everyone except Atlanta. From Heyman:

The American League champion Royals, looking for bats, have been in contact with former Royal Melky Cabrera . . . Cincinnati was tied earlier to Aoki and Morse, but if the Reds decide to go for it, they may stretch for Cabrera.

 

Of course, Melky played for the Royals once before. Back then he was trying to stay in the bigs. Now he’s likely looking for a longer term deal. He is said to want to play on the east coast or the Midwest, however, so his options aren’t as wide as they could be.
