Rangers finalizing deal for Lucroy
Update: 3:55p.m. ET
At long last, Jonathan Lucroy has been traded -- this time for good. Lucroy will head to the Rangers for a package that doesn't include Jurickson Profar or Joey Gallo. Rather outfielder Lewis Brinson and pitcher Luis Ortiz will serve as the main return for the Brewers. For more on that deal, check out our expanded coverage here.
Mets, Reds complete Bruce trade
Update: 3:40p.m. ET
The Mets and Reds have worked through earlier hurdles and have reached an agreement on a new trade sending Jay Bruce to New York. In return, the Reds will receive at least Dilson Herrera. For more on that deal, check out our expanded coverage.
Pirates chasing Moore
Update: 3:30p.m. ET
The Pirates are among the teams pursuing Rays southpaw Matt Moore, per Ken Rosenthal. Moore has had a nice run of appearances lately -- see his 1.99 ERA over his last six starts. The Pirates could use some immediate rotation help, and are probably emboldened by Moore's team-friendly contract. Factor in how he might have some upside remaining, and we'll see if the Pirates go big to land their man. If not, the Giants and Dodgers are among Moore's other named suitors.
Beltran heading to Texas
Update: 2:55p.m. ET
The Rangers and Yankees have agreed to swap Beltran for pitching prospect Dillon Tate, per Jeff Passan. Tate was the no. 4 pick in the 2015 draft. Earlier, we'd heard that the Rangers and Indians were competing for Beltran's services. He figures to slot in as Texas' primary DH, and he'll make a good one -- he entered Monday hitting .304/.344/.546 with 22 home runs. Beltran will qualify for free agency at season's end.
White Sox likely to keep Sale, Quintana
Update: 2:30p.m. ET
Not that this is going to surprise anyone who's been paying attention, but the White Sox seem confident they'll be keeping both Chris Sale and Jose Quintana in town past 4 p.m. That note comes courtesy of Bob Nightengale. With just under 90 minutes until the deadline, there's still the possibility that the required blockbuster package comes together. It just doesn't appear probable.
Mets trade for Bruce hits snag
Update: 1:40 p.m. ET
Here's more evidence that nothing good comes from the Mets being described cautiously optimistic: the Jay Bruce trade, previously thought to be a done deal, is being held up due to a medical concern, per Jerry Crasnick. Crasnick notes that he's not sure the severity, but that the "medicals [have become] more than a formality" at this point.
White Sox interested in Puig
Update: 1:10 p.m. ET
We've already covered the fact that the White Sox have talked with multiple teams about a Chris Sale trade. Here's a new wrinkle to that development: Rick Hahn would want Yasiel Puig in any trade. Puig's name has been out there a lot lately -- he was reportedly floated in three-team trade talks that would've landed the Dodgers Jay Bruce -- so this probably isn't an obstacle from the Dodgers' perspective. The question, then, is what else the Dodgers would have to give up to make a deal happen.
Mets on verge of Bruce trade
Update: 12:28 p.m. ET
The Mets are nearing an agreement to acquire Reds outfielder Jay Bruce, per Buster Olney. Bruce was one of the top available bats, and while his defensive fit is questionable, he ought to help a power-needy lineup. Outfielder Brandon Nimmo is expected to be included in the package. For more on this potential deal, check out our expanded analysis.
Miller not being moved, per GM
Update: 12:27 p.m. ET
Yesterday, we speculated on where Shelby Miller might land if the Diamondbacks traded him. Today, Arizona general manager Dave Stewart squashed that talk by stating that Miller would not be moved. Miller, of course, is in the midst of a horrendous season -- one that has to be considered among the most disappointing efforts in the league, given the rent the D'Backs paid to acquire him over the winter.
Mariners closing in on Cozart
Update: 12:08 p.m. ET
Per Bob Dutton, the Mariners are nearing a trade for Reds shortstop Zack Cozart. The deal isn't done yet, obviously, but it makes some sense on paper. Ketel Marte is on the disabled list with mono, and could probably use more minor-league seasoning when he returns. Cozart, meanwhile, is under team control for an additional season and is appealing as an upside play -- especially to teams who believe his offensive gains over the past year-plus are legitimate. We wrote more about Cozart here.
Astros interested in Rays' starters
Update: 11:44 a.m. ET
If you know anything about the Rays, it's that they won't make a trade until the final hour. As such, teams are going to spend the next four-plus hours trying to woo them -- especially with regards to their starting pitchers. Add the Astros to the list of interested parties, , per Chris Cotillo. The Astros almost certainly have the prospects to acquire any of Tampa Bay's starters -- Chris Archer included -- but it's unclear which starter (starters?) the Astros are most interested in.
Sale trade remains unlikely
Update: 11:11 a.m. ET
According to Jon Heyman, the Rangers, Dodgers, and Red Sox continue to pester the White Sox about Chris Sale, yet a trade remains unlikely. Heyman names some names involved in each discussion -- probably those you'd expect: Julio Urias, Nomar Mazara, and the like -- but also notes that the White Sox' asking price remains sky-high, as it should. Sale is one of the game's best starters, and he's on a remarkably team-friendly deal. Ditto for Jose Quintana, who, by the way, is probably sticking in Chicago as well, per Heyman. Phil Rogers has since added that Yoan Moncada is unlikely to be part of a trade, meaning a Boston package would be led by Andrew Benintendi and Eduardo Rodriguez. Ken Rosenthal adds that there's no indication a trade will happen.
Red Sox checked in on Beltran
Update: 10:46 a.m. ET
We've seen the Red Sox and Yankees make deadline trades before -- heck, just last deadline featured a Stephen Drew-Kelly Johnson swap -- so this probably won't be as fun as it should. Still, Nick Cafardo has reported that the Red Sox indeed called about Carlos Beltran. The Yankees' asking price is reportedly high, but Beltran would make sense for Boston as a stopgap in left field.
Rangers idling on Lucroy?
Update: 9:46 a.m. ET
In case you wanted more Jonathan Lucroy-related drama, then here's an update for you: the Rangers have reportedly not discussed him with the Brewers since last night. That sounds like a minor blip -- and it probably is -- but going hours between talks means we have to speculate on things like whether another team will hop in and steal Lucroy away. Ken Rosenthal, for his part, offered the Astros and Tigers as potential thieves. You wouldn't think a large cat would make for an effective burglar, but we'll see.
Tigers pawing at Santiago?
Update: 9:46 a.m. ET
According to Jayson Stark, he's heard "rumblings" connecting the Tigers to Angels southpaw Hector Santiago. We'd learned before that Detroit was checking in on various back-end options, and Santiago fits the mold. Stark notes that the Tigers are unwilling to give up Daniel Norris or Matt Boyd, but neither would seem necessary to complete a deal. For our part, we're skeptical about Santiago's ability to help a contender.
Mets working on a Bruce deal
Update: 9:27 a.m. ET
We swear this isn't an update from last year's coverage. For the second consecutive deadline, the Mets are trying to land Jay Bruce from the Reds to add thump to their lineup. Obviously the fit is a little less obvious this go around -- the Mets could use a true center fielder, which is not a term ever used to describe Bruce -- but New York's rationale seems to be to acquire as many good hitters as possible and work it out later. After the success they had last deadline with that approach, it's hard to knock 'em.
Braves Johnson likely to go
Update: 8:46 a.m. ET
If we're being honest, the trade deadline is really just a dressed-up reason for non-contenders to trade their veteran bullpen arms. That's what the Braves reportedly intend to do with Jim Johnson on Monday, anyway. Johnson's name has surfaced in rumors for the past few days, and Mark Bowman tweets that he remains the Braves player most likely to get dealt. Johnson ought to be able to help someone in middle relief down the stretch. Bowman also notes that shortstop Erick Aybar hasn't inspired much interest -- not too surprising, given his horrendous season to date.
Giants pushing for Bruce, Moore
Update: 8:35 a.m. ET
It's deadline day, meaning the rumors are getting hot and heavy -- especially in San Francisco, where the Giants are said to be making a strong push to acquire Reds outfielder Jay Bruce, who would provide them with a legitimate left-handed power threat in the middle of their lineup. Overnight, Bob Nightengale reported that the Reds expect to trade Bruce to a National League club this morning. Just an observation: the Giants are a National League club. Additionally, the Giants continue to chase rotation help, too, and have been linked to Rays lefty Matt Moore. It's unclear if the Giants have the farm system to close such a deal, however.
