Jonny Gomes headed to Royals in trade from Braves

The Royals have added one last piece for their playoff run, acquiring Braves outfielder Jonny Gomes in a trade just before the waiver trade deadline Monday night.

Fox Sports first reported the Royals’ acquisition of Gomes, who was hitting .223 for Atlanta, but with an .878 on-base plus slugging percentage against southpaws.

The Royals also acquired cash from Atlanta in the deal and traded minor-league infielder Luis Valenzuela, 22, who was hitting .339 in 47 games for Class A Lexington in 2015.

Red Sox trade first baseman Mike Napoli to Rangers

It didn’t even require Frank Francisco this time around.

First baseman Mike Napoli, who on multiple occasions expressed hope he could stay in Boston, was traded by the Red Sox to the Texas Rangers along with cash in a waiver deal Friday, the teams announced.

The Red Sox will receive a player to be named later or cash in the trade.

Napoli played two seasons with the Rangers, in 2011 and ‘12, before joining the Red Sox as a free agent in the ensuing offseason….

Napoli has struggled mightily at the plate this season. On July 22, he was batting only .198. But in 14 games since, he’s posted a .957 OPS with six doubles and three home runs, raising his overall average to .207.

Braves, Dodgers To Swap Callaspo, Uribe In Six-Player Deal - MLB Trade Rumors

Trade talks between the Dodgers and Braves regarding Alberto Callaspo and Juan Uribe fell apart Tuesday morning after Callaspo vetoed the transaction, but talks rekindled just hours later after Callaspo had a change of heart, and the two sides have reportedly reached a deal, pending approval from the commissioner’s office. The Braves will acquire Uribe and right-hander Chris Withrow from the Dodgers in exchange for Callaspo, right-hander Juan Jaime and left-handers Ian Thomas and Eric Stults.

Cubs-Mets trade will happen ‘at some point’

s both teams move toward contention in the near future, Cubs’ general manager Jed Hoyer believes that the sides will eventually match up on a deal (via Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times).

“We haven’t made a deal yet, but there’s been matches that made sense, and I’m sure we’ll talk to them in the future,” said Hoyer, who has a relationship with Mets player-development executive Paul DePodesta going back to their time together in the Padres’ front office.

Cubs president Theo Epstein and Mets GM Sandy Alderson also have a good relationship.

“I guess when you factor in the hitting and the pitching, I guess people think it’s unusual,” Hoyer said of the fact the teams haven’t hooked up on a trade.

“But it’ll happen at some point.”
