Heyman: Peralta, Wood and Pavano available

By jcfortun Published: July 6, 2009

Third baseman Mark DeRosa may have been the first Indians player dealt this season, but it is likely he won't be the last.

Sports Illustrated writer Jon Heyman reports shortstop/third baseman Jhonny Peralta, closer Kerry Wood and starting pitcher Carl Pavano could all be shipped out before the trade deadline.

In the same column, Heyman delivers his midseason awards:

Maury Wills Award (Worst Manager): Eric Wedge, Indians. Everything that can go wrong has gone wrong. Just got the vote of confidence, as GM  Mark Shapirodiplomatically blames himself more than Wedge.

Hawk Harrelson Award (AL Worst Executive): Mark Shapiro, Indians. Very bright guy, and two-time major league Executive of the Year. His Indians have gotten very unlucky. But let's face it, very little has worked. The bullpen has been an abomination, and the rotation isn't much better. The Kerry Wood contract, with two years at $20.5 million plus a third year if he closes 55 games this year and next, does not look good now.
