The Brewers are getting ready to sell, and the Tigers are still looking to improve. 

  • After being swept by the Reds, the Brewers are now 10.5 games out, and will probably be selling, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Tom Haudricourt. Brewers coach Ron Roenicke said selling is a distraction, and pointed to the 2011 Cardinals as a reason the Brewers could still contend. Aramis Ramirez has come up in trade talks, and the Dodgers are interested. Ramirez signed a three-year, $36 million deal with the Brewers last off-season. Both Zack Greinke and Francisco Rodriguez remain available.'s Danny Knobler mentioned Greinke in his latest article.
  • The Tigers scouted Marlins pitcher Anibal Sanchez on Sunday, according to’s Josh Slagter. In seven innings, Sanchez allowed three runs and struck out eight batters.  Slagter mentioned that the team should also look to add Omar Infante if they choose to deal for Sanchez. The Tigers haven’t received much production at second base this season, and Infante would be a nice upgrade.
  • The Royals could deal Alex Gordon, according to The Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo. The team is looking for pitching and Gordon could be on the block. Cafardo thinks the Yankees could have interest. 
  • Scott Hairston and Tim Byrdak could be available if the Mets start to sell, according to’s Adam Rubin. Rubin asked an AL executive if the Mets could trade both players. The executive replied “I think they will.”
