They'll dangle lefty reliever Scott Downs in hopes they can spin him for a more long-term piece. And if teams are willing to offer cost-controlled starting pitching in exchange for a position player -- Yahoo! Sports reported late Sunday afternoon that middle infielders Howie Kendrick and Erick Aybar have been made available -- they'll certainly explore it.
