Indians, Rockies In "Serious" Talks About Ubaldo Jiménez

Ubaldo Jimenez will cost the Colorado Rockies an average of $6 million over the next three years. The Rockies have repeatedly said that they would need to be overwhelmed with prospects to move their ace. According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, things might be getting overwhelming:

Rox in serious talks w Indians. Hearing would center around (Drew) Pomeranz, Alex White and (Jason) Kipnis.

Jon Heyman had a similar tweet, indicating that the Rockies were also asking for Lonnie Chisenhall.

Jimenez's $8 million option for 2014 is voided if he's traded, so his contract is more of a reason for the Rockies to keep him, rather than a reason for the Indians to trade for him.

Still, those are some serious prospects that the Indians might be dangling. Pomeranz was the fifth overall pick in the draft  last year, White was the 15th pick the year before that, Chisenhall was the 29th pick in 2008, and Kipnis was the Indians' second-round pick in 2008. Basically, the Indians might have been drafting little pieces of Ubaldo every year for the past three seasons.

Update: According to Jon Heyman, Ubaldo was scratched from his start tonight. Heyyyy-ohhh!
