MLB Trade Rumors: Hottest Reports as 2016 Deadline’s End Approaches

Only a few days remain before the MLB trade deadline Monday. Yet there are probably still a couple front offices around the league surveying the market and the tight-knit playoff race to determine whether they should be buyers or sellers leading up to Aug. 1. Those on the fringe may ultimately lean toward selling. Since there are so many teams with a legitimate chance at the postseason thanks to the presence of two wild-card spots, there are a select number of teams already looking toward the future and thus willing to part with major league talent. With that in mind, let's check out some of the latest rumors from around the league. That includes a breakdown of what the potential deals would mean for the players and teams involved.   Matt Moore Likely on the Move Moore isn't yet all the way back to the level he reached before undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2014. ...




MLB Trade Deadline 2016: Date and Latest Rumors Around the League

MLB's trade deadline is fast approaching, and teams are beginning to declare whether they will be buyers or sellers in the market. This year's non-waiver trade deadline is August 1, a day later than usual due to the fact that July 31 falls on a Sunday.  Aside from the obvious contenders and pretenders, most teams in the middle are still biding their time to determine whether or not they should make a push for the postseason. As a result, there has been a shortage of concrete rumors to this point, but the rumblings should begin to pick up in the final week of July.  Here's an update on some of the most recent rumors and discussions floating around the league:      Indians, Brewers discussing multiplayer deal ESPN's Buster Olney provided one of the juiciest deadline rumors of the season to date when he linked the Cleveland Indians to Milwaukee Brewers All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy: Sources: CLE ...




MLB Trade Rumors: Latest Buzz on Carlos Gonzalez, Nick Castellanos and More

Major League Baseball trade rumors are hot this time of year. The New York Yankees landed former Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman in a deal for four minor leaguers Monday, and there should be plenty more moves on the horizon. Rumors surrounding Colorado Rockies outfielders have been swirling this week, per Jon Morosi of Fox Sports. He reported the St. Louis Cardinals have talked with Colorado about trading for an outfielder, and the Rockies have three available.   CarGo Among Those Available to Be Traded Carlos Gonzalez enjoyed a career year with the Rockies in 2015, slashing .271/.325/.540 with 40 home runs and 97 RBI. The Rockies need pitching, and the Cardinals need an outfielder after losing Jason Heyward to the Chicago Cubs in free agency. Scott Gelman of MLB Daily Dish said a trade makes sense in regard to the positions, but Gonzalez may not be the Colorado outfielder the Cardinals need: Colorado is reportedly shopping all three ...




MLB Trade Rumors: Latest Trade Buzz After 2015 Winter Meetings

The 2015 MLB winter meetings are officially in the books, and they will likely be remembered for a flurry of activity and nonstop rumors. A number of teams look vastly different leaving Nashville, Tennessee, than they did at the end of the 2015 campaign, including the Arizona Diamondbacks (hello, Zack Greinke and Shelby Miller), New York Mets (a brand new double-play tandem in Asdrubal Cabrera and Neil Walker), Chicago Cubs (they added Ben Zobrist and John Lackey) and New York Yankees (plus Starlin Castro, minus Justin Wilson). It may feel like baseball will take a backseat now and settle into the quiet portion of the offseason, but there are still a number of moves to be made. Eyes will be firmly glued on Jason Heyward, Mike Leake and a handful of potential trade targets in the coming days and weeks.  There are still plenty of trade rumors circulating, as well, even with the ...




MLB Trade Rumors: Latest on Jose Fernandez, James Shields and More

The Major League Baseball winter meetings in Nashville, Tennessee, are in full swing as rumors and speculation swirl around countless players and teams looking to make a change.  While some wheeling and dealing has already been done in a few notable deals, some of the biggest names in the game have become available on the trading block. Let's take a look at the latest on some of baseball's hottest trade rumors.    Jose Fernandez Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez has surprisingly become a trade target this offseason after reports surfaced, via WINZ's Andy Slater, that Fernandez asked Marlins management to be traded multiple times during the 2015 season.  It's that kind of attitude that saw him fall out of favor of some teammates, who anonymously told Slater that they hoped the 23-year-old would get "shelled" while pitching.  According to ESPN.com's Jayson Stark, the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks have spoken with the Marlins about ...




MLB Trade Rumors: Latest Reports at Start of 2015 Winter Meetings

The MLB winter meetings commenced Sunday in Nashville, and there is plenty of buzz that could shift the competitive landscape in the industry’s largest annual congregation of executives and media. The top free agents—starting pitchers Zack Greinke and David Price—were snatched off the market last week for deals exceeding $200 million. But there are still plenty of high-profile chips that could be in play. The trade market has been relatively quiet this offseason, but there are a few rumors floating that indicate it could heat up during the four-day event. Here is a look at the latest buzz as the always-exciting winter meetings get underway.   Reds expected to trade Aroldis Chapman Cincinnati Reds general manager Dick Williams indicated he expects to strike a deal to ship triple-digits closer Aroldis Chapman before the winter meetings conclude Wednesday, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Among the possible suitors include the Houston Astros, Washington Nationals and the increasingly ...




MLB Rumors: Top Trade Rumors Ahead of 2015 Winter Meetings

The 2015 Major League Baseball winter meetings have yet to start, but it's already obvious that this will be one of the craziest and least predictable offseasons in years.  Zack Greinke provided the biggest jolt so far this winter, agreeing to a deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. Newton's third law of motion states that for every action there must be an equal and opposite reaction. Greinke going to the desert has a ripple effect on the rest of MLB, particularly in the National League West where the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants were considered favorites for the right-hander, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.  While free agency is often the focus at the winter meetings, the trade winds are also likely to bear fruit. Trading is also a more practical way for teams that can't spend nine figures on a single player to bolster ...




Why Aroldis Chapman Will Be the 2015 MLB Winter Meetings’ Must-Have Prize

In the days leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, the Houston Astros and Cincinnati Reds discussed a blockbuster deal that would have sent both Johnny Cueto and Aroldis Chapman to the Astros. Imagine how different the 2015 postseason might have been had the trade gone down. Remember, in Game 4 of the division series, the Astros had a 6-2 eighth-inning lead with a chance to eliminate the Kansas City Royals. The play everyone will remember is the two-run Carlos Correa error that tied the game, but three Astros relievers allowed five hits and two walks in the five-run inning. And, of course, Cueto went on to beat the Astros in Game 5. There's no way to replay any of that now, not the trade deadline, and certainly not Game 4 or Game 5. But the Astros still could get Chapman—and Cueto, for that matter. Cueto, a free agent, will be one of ...
