I guess the Orioles aren’t selling.

The Phillies were active on the trade front Friday night, sending infielder/outfielder Howie Kendrick to the Nationals, and right-hander Jeremy Hellickson to the Orioles. With Monday’s non-waiver Trade Deadline looming, the Marlins and Mets also completed a deal that sent Miami closer AJ Ramos to New York.

Dealing For Further-Away Prospects An Emerging Trend | BaseballAmerica.com

At the rate baseball is going, by 2020 teams will be signing international prospects on July 2 and trading them on July 3.

In the never-ending attempts to find an edge, the 2017 trade deadline has shown a developing pattern. Teams are willing to dig deeper into the furthest recesses of farm systems in an attempt to land a bargain.

Already a full one-fifth of Baseball America’s 2016 Top 20 Dominican Summer League Prospects list has swapped teams. Royals middle infielder Esteury Ruiz became the latest high-upside-if-far-away prospect to get a new home as he was traded to the Padres in the Trevor Cahill-Ryan Buchter-Brandon Maurer trade. Before him the Rays acquired Carlos Vargas from the Mariners, Jose King went to the Tigers in the recent J.D. Martinez trade and Brayan Hernandez was sent to the Marlins for David Phelps.

Don’t rush to judgment on trades, just look at the Reds | FOX Sports

Really?

Jocketty, who became an executive advisor with the Reds in December with Dick Williams taking over as GM, said that in 22 years as a lead executive he learned the value of patience and persistence. He credits a variety of scouts and assistants when discussing his trades — Marty Maier and Mike Squires liked Suarez, J Harrison was high on Duvall, Jeff Schugel pushed Schebler and Bruce Manno — the Braves’ former assistant GM — recommended Peraza.

The Chapman deal still could yield a benefit, if righty Rookie Davis develops into a back-end starter. So could the Jay Bruce trade, but to this point second baseman Dilson Herrera isn’t hitting at Triple A.

The lesson applies every July: Don’t judge trades so quickly. Things change over time.

Why this summer’s trade market could be even more intriguing than usual

In any case, this will be a different market, if only because of the new rules regarding draft-pick compensation for free agents who reject qualifying offers and sign with new clubs.

Unlike in the past, only a revenue-sharing recipient will receive a pick immediately following the first round for such a player – and only if the free agent signs a contract for a total guarantee of $50 million or more.

All other circumstances will yield lower picks, reducing the incentive for teams that are out of contention to carry players to free agency; the better returns would come in trades.

The non-waiver deadline is nearly three months away. Teams will not get serious about trades until after the amateur draft, which runs from June 12 to 14. But things will be interesting. Things always are interesting.

Angels acquire David Hernandez to add to bullpen depth

The Angels, whose bullpen has been beset by injuries and overworked, acquired veteran reliever David Hernandez from the Atlanta Braves in exchange for cash considerations or a player to be named on Monday.

Hernandez, who had been in Triple-A with the Braves, is expected to join the Angels’ major league bullpen.

Have right arm, will travel.
