According to a report from Bruce Levine, “at least four teams are zeroing in on Kosuke Fukudome”. Levine has reported the Indians interest in Fukudome for a couple of weeks and reiterated Cleveland’s interest in Kosuke again on Sunday.
Kosuke Fukudome has a limited no-trade clause and can block a deal to six teams. It is unknown if Cleveland is one of the teams on his list.
Kosuke Fukudome hit just .229/.315/.385 in 28 games in June with seven doubles, a triple and two home runs. Prior to Sunday’s game against the Astros, Fukudome’s line in July was .259/.322/.352 with three doubles and a triple in 15 games.
Fukudome was 1-for-4 with a walk on Sunday in what could have been his last home game at Wrigley.
