Buster Olney Cain on the Block

With the Cleveland Indians in the process of considering offers for Cy Young Award winner C.C. Sabathia, the Milwaukee Brewers -- who seemingly match up better with Cleveland than any other team in the Indians' need for young position players -- restructured their offer for the left-hander Saturday, sources said.

After 237 starts and 106 victories, Sabathia's time with the Indians could soon come to an end. He is eligible for free agency this fall, after contract talks broke off last spring, with Sabathia reportedly turning down an offer that would have been worth a total of about $85 million. If the Brewers don't make a deal for the lefty, their other options would be less costly, but also less dynamic, with greater performance risk. As the Brewers compile that Plan B list of possible targets, it might include the Padres' Randy Wolf, Seattle's Erik Bedard, Oakland's Joe Blanton and Rich Harden, San Francisco's Matt Cain and Toronto's A.J. Burnett.
