The 2016 non-waiver trade deadline falls on August 1 this year, meaning it's about a week away now. We've already seen a handful of trades go down in recent weeks, most notably involving Aroldis Chapman, James Shields and Drew Pomeranz, and you can be sure many more are on the way.

To help you keep track of all the rumors and rumblings, we'll log the day's buzz right here, so make sure you check back often for the latest updates. Here's a look at Monday's trade chatter.

M's, Jays swap disappointing relievers

Update: 11:10 p.m. ET

Here's a minor trade to enjoy on this Tuesday night: the Mariners have shipped Joaquin Benoit to the Blue Jays in exchange for Drew Storen and cash considerations.

Neither pitcher is having a good season. Benoit missed time with shoulder soreness, and has struggled with his command, leading to a rise in his hit, walk, and home-run rates. Storen, meanwhile, hasn't been much better, though he does have a superior strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Both teams are hoping their new reliever reverts to their old high-leverage ways before hitting free agency at season's end. Storen, being the younger of the two, is ostensibly the more likely of the two to do it.

Hill expects to start Sunday

Update: 10:10 p.m. ET

Rich Hill left his most recent start after five pitches due to a blister. Yet here's some good news for the A's and their potential trade partners: Hill expects to make his next start on Sunday. That promising update comes after Hill threw a bullpen session on Tuesday. Of course, the question is whether Hill will be with the A's at that point, or if an interested team will pounce on him beforehand. Given that the deadline is a day later, you have to think Hill will make one more start for the A's. Who knows though.

Teheran to start Saturday

Update: 9:00 p.m. ET

Let us preface this by saying that the Braves have given every indication they will not trade All-Star starter Julio Teheran. It's just that there's been talk that maybe someone might try to pry him away and, frankly, the Braves would be dumb to not listen in case someone gave way too much (a la Shelby Miller).

So with that said, we'll point out that Teheran had his scheduled start pushed back due to back discomfort. On Tuesday, he threw without issue, so he'll start Saturday ( Mark Bowman).

That is two days before the deadline, too. Probably not much drama, but you never know.

Four teams in on Bruce

Update: 5:06 p.m. ET

The Reds are speaking to four teams about outfielder Jay Bruce and talks are heating up, reports ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. They're seeking a top prospect in return. Bruce, 29, is hitting .272/.326/.564 (132 OPS+) with 23 home runs and an NL high 77 RBI in 93 games this year. He's healthy now after dealing with nagging injuries and hitting only .222/.288/.406 (91 OPS+) from 2015-16.

Cashner to be dealt before start?

Update: 4:19 p.m. ET

The Padres are making progress on trade talks involving right-hander Andrew Cashner, and he may be dealt prior to Tuesday night's start against the Blue Jays, reports Jon Morosi of Keep in mind there was talk Cashner could be dealt prior to his last start, but that obviously didn't happen. Several teams, including the Rangers and Marlins have been in on Cashner lately.

Hudson likely staying put

Update: 4:03 p.m. ET

Righty reliever Daniel Hudson will likely remain with the Diamondbacks through the trade deadline, according to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN. Hudson has pitched so poorly of late that trade interest has dried up. The 29-year-old right-hander has allowed 21 runs on 24 hits and four walks in his last 7 2/3 innings. Hudson will be a free agent after the season.

Urias available for Sale?

Update: 1:33 p.m. ET

The Dodgers are willing to put prized left-hander Julio Urias on the table during Chris Sale trade talks with the White Sox, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Sherman says the Dodgers would be more aggressive pursuing Sale than they were Cole Hamels last year for multiple reasons, including his team friendly contract. Urias, who is still only 19, is arguably the top pitching prospect in baseball. He's been considered off-limits in all trade talks up until now.

Many teams on Hellickson

Update: 1:30 p.m. ET

The Rangers and Orioles were among the teams scouting Phillies right-hander Jeremy Hellickson on Monday night, reports ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. The Marlins are in the mix as well. Hellickson, 29, allowed one hit in six scoreless innings against Miami on Monday. He is 7-7 with a 3.65 ERA (112 ERA+) on the year, and will become a free agent after the season.

Yanks buying and selling?

Update: 12:11 p.m. ET

Even after the Aroldis Chapman trade, rival teams tell Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports the Yankees are looking to both buy and sell at the trade deadline. "We're not playing in a narrow-minded world. We want to be open to any and all ideas - buy, sell, long, short. It's in our best interests to be creative and open-minded, not just now," said GM Brian Cashman to Rosenthal. The Yankees are said to be seeking controllable pitching.

Upton trade a done deal

Update: 11:22 a.m. ET

The Padres have officially announced the Upton trade. Melvin Upton Jr. and cash considerations go to the Blue Jays for 19-year-old rookie ball prospect Hansel Rodriguez. Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball says the Padres are eating $17 million of the $22 million remaining on Upton's contract.

Untouchables in Chapman talks

Update: 11:07 a.m. ET

During their trade talks with the Yankees about Aroldis Chapman (and presumably Andrew Miller), the Nationals made just about all of their top young players untouchable, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. That includes righty Joe Ross, righty Lucas Giolito, shortstop Trea Turner, outfielder Victor Robles, and righty Reynaldo Lopez. The Indians "seemingly" made outfield prospects Bradley Zimmer and Clint Frazier off-limits during talks with the Yankees as well. It's no surprise then that the Yankees dealt Chapman to the Cubs.

O's offered Ubaldo, more for Upton

Update: 11:02 a.m. ET

The Orioles offered Ubaldo Jimenez and two minor leaguers to the Padres for Melvin Upton Jr., reports Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. It is believed talks broke down over finances. Upton is owed $22 million through next season while Jimenez is owed roughly $19.3 million over the same time. The Padres instead agreed to trade Upton to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Yanks looking to move Nova next?

Update: 10:02 a.m. ET

Following the Aroldis Chapman trade, the Yankees are looking to move starter Ivan Nova next, reports Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News. The Marlins are among the clubs pursuing him. Nova, 29, will be a free agent after the season. He has a 4.65 ERA (91 ERA+) in 93 innings this year, and a 4.86 ERA (85 ERA+) in 187 innings since returning from Tommy John surgery last year. "They're shooting high, but it's early. They know what the pitching market looks like right now and they're trying to capitalize on that," said a source to Feinsand.

Pads, Jays agree to Upton trade

Update: 9:57 a.m. ET

The Padres have agreed to a trade that will send Melvin Upton Jr. to the Blue Jays for a Class A prospect. San Diego is expected to eat some of the $22 million left on Upton's contract to facilitate the trade. Once the deal is complete, Upton will only have to change dugouts. The Padres are currently in Toronto for a three-game series.
