Who should the Indians talk to about Asdrubal Cabrera?

If there's one team in Major League Baseball that needs to make a few trades this winter, it's the Cleveland Indians. They have a lot of rebuilding to do, and dealing off a couple (or all) of their stars would certainly help speed up the process.

Other teams around the league realize this too. According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, the Indians are getting calls on at least four players—Asdrubal Cabrera, Shin-Soo Choo, Justin Masterson and Chris Perez. Indians general manager Chris Antonetti refused to call any of the four untouchable, meaning he's likely to be a popular man at this week's meetings.

"I'm not looking to move those guys,'' he said. "But we have to be open-minded.''

While he's at it, he may also want to consider moving Carlos Santana and Vinnie Pestano. ESPN's Buster Olney thinks he should.

For kicks, let's say that Antonetti makes all six of these players available on the trade block. Who should he be looking to do business with?

Good question. Here's a look at one perfect fit for each player.
