MLB trade targets: Top 20 players who could move by the deadline

13. Adam Jones, Orioles, center fielder: It was the trade that sent the Mariners spiraling, and in the 10 years since Jones and four others including pitcher Chris Tillman was traded to Baltimore, the Mariners still have not quite recovered. The Orioles love Jones, who has become the face of their franchise, but he’s a free agent in November.

Prediction: The Mariners, who lost All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano to a PED suspension and center fielder Dee Gordon to a broken toe, finally right a wrong and brings back Jones.

A lot of Orioles are on the list.

ESPN: Reds acquire Matt Harvey, ship Devin Mesoraco to Mets

The Reds agreed to pay the Mets $5,788,978 as part of the trade, which made the deal come out nearly even financially. Harvey is making $5,625,000 on a one-year contract. Mesoraco gets $13 million in the final season of a four-year, $28 million deal.

This would have been a blockbuster deal a few seasons ago. Unfortunately, both players are now washed-out, former All-Stars. I realize that the Reds are desperate for starting pitching, but I don’t understand why they want to pay $13M for a season of Matt Harvey.

Mets to designate former All-Star Matt Harvey for assignment

“My guess,” Alderson said, “is that there are people out there who are willing to take a shot on Matt Harvey.

“It’s the end of an era. And I use that term in the broad sense. Matt has been a cornerstone certainly of my tenure here. A tremendous prospect at the time I arrived, tremendous accomplishments during the course of my tenure here, and it’s a very unfortunate, difficult conclusion.”
