Latest on Octavio Dotel; Cedeno/Iwamura trade talk

 

By John Perrotto Could Octavio Dotel be back as the Pirates’ closer in 2011? Club president Frank Coonelly said in his monthly chat this week on the Pirates’ official web site that Dotel is not on the trading block. Sources with other clubs indicate that the Pirates don’t seem very willing to trade Dotel. And a high-ranking Pirates’ source indicated that the club is seriously considering holding on to Dotel and exercising the $4.5-million club option in his contract for next season.
