Trade Rumors Newsbeat
Monday, July 25, 2016
Torres would be a good get, although there is a question whether he’ll outgrow shortstop.
MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reported on Sunday night that the Cubs’ top prospect, shortstop Gleyber Torres, would be a part of a deal between Chicago and the Yankees involving Chapman. Torres was scratched from the lineup before his game Sunday at Class A Advanced Myrtle Beach.

The Yankees are informing other clubs that they are nearing a trade of closer Aroldis Chapman but will hang onto fellow left-handed reliever Andrew Miller, Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reported on Saturday night. The club has not confirmed the report.

I can’t see the White Sox dealing Sale. That said, every player should be available in the “right deal”.

The scenario, according to major-league sources, unfolded like this:
The Cubs tried to acquire left-hander Drew Pomeranz before the Padres sent him to the Red Sox for Class A right-hander Anderson Espinoza — simple enough.
The Cubs’ plan, though, wasn’t to keep Pomeranz, who is under club control through 2018. No, the Cubs wanted to spin Pomeranz for a starter who is under even longer team control.

Would the Cubs trade him for Miller and Chapman?
“Cash thinks he can hit 50 home runs there,” one source with knowledge of the Yankees’ plans said, and, well, that isn’t altogether farfetched. Schwarber is a 30-home run hitter in any park, presuming he comes back from the torn ACL that has sidelined him almost all of 2016.
He has to pitch to have value.
Rich Hill, one of the top trade chips on the mid-summer market, left Sunday’s start five pitches in after a blister on his left hand appeared to pop.
Hill had been scratched from Friday’s start because of the blister but reported that his side session that day went well and he was fine.
Moore pitched a season-high 7⅓ innings. He had gone exactly seven five times. He allowed five hits and struck out only one because he pitched to contact against an aggressive lineup. Shortstop J.J. Hardy’s two-run homer in the second accounted for the Orioles’ runs.
“I tell you, Moore was as good as Tillman,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “That was two good pitchers at the top of their game. Fine margin of error.”
Scouts from the Dodgers, Rangers, Red Sox, Pirates and Nationals on hand to see Moore pitch went away pleased.

Is regressing before you become an All-Star a really big issue?
Benintendi, the Red Sox’s first-round pick out of Arkansas a year ago, has only 177 at-bats at Double A. Some Sox officials are wary of rushing him, knowing that shortstop Xander Bogaerts and center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. reached the majors quickly, then regressed before becoming All-Stars.

The Red Sox aren’t making a big deal.
“You’ve got to start with one,” Dombrowski said of how many starters he seeks. “I hope we get one. It’s not an easy starting pitching market out there. There’s a lot of clubs looking for starting pitching and there’s not a lot of starting pitchers out there.
“You can get starting pitching. I assure you I can pick up the phone and get a starting pitcher. But is it a starting pitcher that helps you? So that’s sort of the key there.”
What are teams asking for? Exactly what you’d think.
“The names we don’t want to trade always seem to start the conversation,” Dombrowski said.
He didn’t specify, but Yoan Moncada and Andrew Benintendi are obvious names.

Why would Baez be a non-starter?
Kyle Schwarber, Javy Baez and top catching prospect Willson Contreras are expected to be non-starters in talks. But the Cubs have a handful of other intriguing young prospects (and possibly Jorge Soler) who could be made available.

Toledo News-Bee, April 7, 1916:
There is a story [in New York] to the effect that the most important baseball deal of the season will be completed [there] on Friday or Saturday. By the deal the world’s champion Red Sox will lose their big sticker, Tris Speaker, who will go to Bill Donovan’s Yankees.
As part of the deal for Speaker, Fritz Maisel, the little third sacker, will be sent to the Red Sox.
Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Press reports that Red Sox president Joe Lannin denies the Speaker to New York rumors. That much was true; Speaker wasn’t headed to New York.

According to a report from the Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo, then-Montreal Expos owner Jeffrey Loria wanted Derek Jeter so bad that he gave his general manager, Jim Beattie, free reign to offer everything the team had.
So, the report said, Beattie offered Yankees general manager Brian Cashman a crazy package: Pedro Martinez and Vladimir Guerrero. Obviously, Cashman rejected it.
“I can’t trade Derek Jeter,” Cashman said, according to the report.
The report didn’t say which year the deal was proposed.

The Cincinnati Reds had agreed to send Bruce to Toronto, which would have shipped outfielder Michael Saunders to the Los Angeles Angels, who would have given the Reds at least one prospect, according to multiple sources. The players, one of the sources said, had been agreed upon and the deal was contingent on a review of medical records.
It is unclear which player’s medicals snagged the deal, though Saunders played only nine games last season after injuring his knee stepping on a sprinkler head in spring training.

MLB Network’s Jon Heyman was the first to report Toronto’s interest in the 28-year-old former Silver Slugger. Heyman tweeted Monday that a three-team deal was in the works that would send Toronto outfielder Michael Saunders to the Angels, Bruce to the Blue Jays and undisclosed players going to the Reds.
