The Cleveland Indians could already have their contingency plan in place in the event that they part ways with All-Star shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera. Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that Tribe GM Chris Antonetti has been in discussion with the Los Angeles Dodgers for shortstop Dee Gordon. #Indians talking with #Dodgers about Dee Gordon, sources tell @ken_rosenthal and me. Would replace Asdrubal if traded. — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) December 5, 2012 The 24-year-old Gordon has hit just .260/.299/.315 in 143 major league games, but he’s among the fastest players in baseball, stealing 24 bases in a shorted rookie season, adding 32 more in 2012. At the start of 2011 he was the Dodgers’ best prospect according to Baseball America and would serve a dual purpose, replacing outfielder Shin-Soo Choo at the top of the Indians’ lineup. The Indians are reportedly in talks with the Arizona Diamondbacks in a deal that would send Asdrubal Cabrera and net them starting pitcher Trevor Bauer.
