09:42 PM ET 11.19 | While outfielders like Jacoby Ellsbury and Shin-Soo Choo top the available free agent outfielder list, teams have been reluctant to pay their commanding price. Both Ellsbury and Choo are looking for deals upwards of $125 million and will require the signing team to forfeit a draft pick in the process. Needless to say, it's quite an investment. That's not to say they're not worth it, but teams are understandably wary and are looking at much more affordable options, like that of Grady Sizemore. Sizemore hasn't played since 2011 though at one time was an All-Star caliber talent. That potential apparently has a lot of teams intrigued as Nick Cafardo says there is much interest in the free agent outfielder.

I guess the Indians need a bucket of balls and a Starbucks gift card.

He's not an Indian. To my knowledge, he's not signed with any club.

Slink is right, Grady is a FA...WTF are the mods thinking?
That would be great if somebody traded for him and then realized they didn't need to...

this t&rs are trying to comfuse the teams in wakeup of a new thinking,
but lets not forget, Sizemore was a qualifier nerveous wrecked player in other
words he is a injury-prone player and it would take a desperation mode to sign him,,,

This is one of my favorite pieces by the SI interns in a long time. A free agent who can't be traded because he isn't signed with a team is drawing trade interest. Incredible reporting. Keep it up.
