The hot stove is really heating up and the Guardians are at the center of a number of rumors and reports. They've been linked to free agents and potential trade targets. 

These aren't mid-level or minor targets either. On Tuesday reports surfaced that the organization had offered Jose Abreu a three-year deal before he decided to sign with the Astros. Now, the team is being linked to the top catching trade target on the market. 

That's Athletics catcher Sean Murphy.
