Josh Willingham continues to draw interest from several teams, including the Cleveland Indians, Minnesota Twins, and Colorado Rockies. Nick Camino reports that Willingham has narrowed his choices to the Twins and Indians, and the Seattle Mariners are no longer in the running. Troy Renck suggests the Rockies will look to Michael Cuddyer if a pursuit of Willingham doesn't pan out:
