Problem with moving Ellsbury is many fold. One you need a team that can take the payroll to begin with. Two they have to have a need. Three that have to see the benefit.



So *maybe* the Tigers would trade Zimmerman for Ellsbury if we threw in a few mid level prospects?





no one's taking any of ellsbury's salary. including this season and the buyout, he's owed approx $77mil. at best you "might" find a team willing to take about $10 mil of that but i don't see teams knocking down the door to git some, so it's essentially a sandoval dump job. ells says he was playing pretty well pre-concussion which is true so maybe someone takes a chance based on that. on the other hand, he seems to get injured every season and he isn't getting younger. at this point, it really comes down to the steinbrenners being willing to suck it up.

One question, what team would even pick Ellsbury up if he were DFA'd ?? I think they only have to pay him like 50K or something, still not sure a team would want him taking up a roster spot on their team ?? Undecided

There are a lot of bad veteran outfielders out there.  He would get picked up by someone.
