Here's the latest out of the American League Central, with concerns about Kendry Morales' health, a juicy rumor on Red Sox interest in Royals' closer Joakim Soria, Jon Garland as a potential option in Minnesota, and bad news for the Tigers with Al Alburquerque:

  • Cleveland Indians have concerns about health of Kendry Morales - Paul Hoynes
    "Not one Indian is signed for guaranteed money past 2012. General managers call that payroll flexibility. From the outside looking in, it could be called a bare-bones operation, clearing the decks to make a big move in the near future or trying to attract a new owner."
  • Red Sox called on Kansas City closer Joakim Soria - WEEI
    "According to multiple sources, the Red Sox had discussions with the Royals about the possibility of dealing for Kansas City closer Joakim Soria. The talks have currently failed to progress, however, with KC seeking (according to a source) at least 'a couple solid pieces.'"
  • Twitter / @jonmorosi:
    "Twins considering Pineiro, Francis, et al. Garland is an option if he demonstrates health."
