According to Ken Rosenthal, citing a Rival GM, the Cardinals have offered Rick Ankiel and a prospect to the Mariners for J.J. Putz. The Cardinals may be willing to give up prospect Colby Rasmus, but a this point, no deal is imminent. This offer would suggest that Fuentes' asking price may be too high, and they will pursue other options.
The Angels and Brewers are interested in Fuentes, but talks may not pick up till after the Rule 5 Draft.
