2013 trade deadline

  1. The Phillies won’t be trading Cliff Lee

    Jul 31, 2013, 11:33 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Lee points towards a pop out by New York Mets Nickeas during the third inning of their MLB National League baseball game in New York

    It seemed pretty obvious that the potential suitor with the most to send back to Philly in exchange for Cliff Lee was the Red Sox, and now that they’re no longer in need of a starting pitcher, Ruben Amaro is no longer looking to deal his ace: Cliff Lee is not getting traded today according…

  2. Phillies, Chase Utley talking about a 2-3 year extension

    Jul 31, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    Chase Utley

    Jon Heyman reports that the Phillies and Chase Utley are discussing a 2-3 year extension worth around $13 million per season. Utley had been talked about in trade rumors for quite a while, but the Phillies have apparently decided that it’s worth going forward — and maybe rebuilding or restructuring — around Utley. Which isn’t…

    Nate Schierholtz

    The Cubs still have pieces on the table after dealing Matt Garza and Alfonso Soriano, and CSNChicago.com’s Patrick Mooney says the Pirates and Tigers have been sniffing around in advance of this afternoon’s trade deadline. The Pirates are most likely interested in Nate Schierholtz to help with their right-field situation. Schierholtz has been a very…

  4. The Cubs are going to hold on to Jeff Samardzija for now

    Jul 31, 2013, 9:42 AM EDT

    Jeff Samardzija

    The Cubs were rumored to be shopping Jeff Samardzija, but Jon Heyman reports that they’ve given up on that and will now try to lock him up this offseason or trade him then. It was worth looking around to see if the team could get some useful prospects for him, but that’s not really developing at the…

    There had been talk that the Angels were going to peddle shortstop Erick Aybar for pitching help, but Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that the Angels probably going to keep him.

The Tigers picked up shortstop Jose Iglesias from Boston. The White Sox are getting outfielder Avisail Garcia from the Tigers and three lower level prospects from the Red Sox: shortstop…

  8. Jackie Bradley Jr. gets pulled from game, appears to be false alarm

    Jul 30, 2013, 9:28 PM EDT

    Jackie Bradley Jr.

    There’s nothing quite like twitter before the trade deadline: Jackie Bradley Jr lifted for a pinch hitter in 6th in Pawtucket. Nothing apparently wrong with him. Trade in works? — Gordon Edes (@GordonEdes) July 31, 2013 If there is a trade going down involving Bradley, it’s not for Peavy, source says — Gordon Edes (@GordonEdes)…

  9. Cardinals have interest in shortstop Erick Aybar

    CBS Sports’ Danny Knobler shares this scoop: After talking to the White Sox about Alexei Ramirez and checking in with the Phillies on Jimmy Rollins, the Cardinals have now been in touch with the Angels about Erick Aybar, according to sources.

    michael young getty

    FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reported on Tuesday afternoon that Phillies infielder Michael Young would only approve a trade back to his old team, the Rangers. But that might not be entirely factual. Jayson Stark of ESPN is hearing from sources that Young will “consider other destinations” if the Phillies ask and that Boston would be…

  12. Michael Morse is “very available”

    Jul 30, 2013, 6:31 PM EDT

    morse getty

    Michael Morse just returned from a badly-strained right quadriceps muscle and he’s batting just .251 with a .313 on-base percentage in 56 games played this season. But he has good power and a market could develop for him at some point between now and Wednesday’s 4 p.m. ET trade deadline. According to Joel Sherman of…

  13. Angels bid for Diamondbacks’ Ian Kennedy

    Jul 30, 2013, 6:06 PM EDT

    Ian Kennedy

    The Angels aren’t buyers and the Diamondbacks aren’t sellers, but it seems they might be able to help each other out by doing an Ian Kennedy deal. Both CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman and FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal have mentioned the possibility. The Padres are also in the running, says MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert. With Brandon McCarthy (shoulder)…

    St Louis Cardinals v San Francisco Giants - Game Six

    Marc Rzepczynski was demoted back to Triple-A after a 48-hour stay with the Cardinals and now Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that the left-hander will be traded to the Indians.

    Jul 30, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    peavy getty

    As of yesterday there were reports that the White Sox wanted both prospects AND money for Jake Peavy. Sean McAdam reports that reason is starting to enter the equation: Despite interest from 4 teams – Red Sox, A’s, D’backs, Cards – sense is White Sox are coming down on Peavy asking price. #RedSoxTalk — Sean…

  16. The Cubs are drawing interest for Nate Schierholtz

    Jul 30, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Nate Schierholtz

    Buster Olney says: The Cubs are getting solid interest on Nate Schierholtz, one of the few good hitters on the market.

  18. Michael Young will only approve a trade to the Rangers

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Michael Young dugout

    There are some suggestions that Michael Young is out the door.  But if he is, it sounds like the destination has to be Texas.  Ken Rosenthal reports that Young, who has a full no-trade clause, will only approve a trade back to the Rangers. What people have been saying about Young all along is true:…

  19. The Phillies want Xander Bogaerts from the Red Sox in a Cliff Lee deal

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    cliff lee wide getty

    I remain skeptical that the Phillies will actually trade Cliff Lee, but it could happen. If it does, it’s gonna take a lot. One report from Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe is that it will take top infield prospect Xander Bogaerts: From every indication Phillies won’t settle for anything less than Bogaerts at the head…

  20. Trade coming? Bud Norris scratched from tonight’s start

    Jul 30, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    bud norris getty

    Bud Norris, like Jake Peavy, has been scratched from tonight’s scheduled start, leading to speculation that the Astros are about to trade the right-hander. Lucas Harrell will start in his place against the Orioles, who’re one of the teams mentioned as a possible landing spot for Norris. Norris doesn’t have the same type of top-of-the-rotation…

  21. Phillies to call up 3B prospect: is Michael Young gone?

    Jul 30, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Michael Young

    Rumors are a lot more fun when they have a step of background intrigue. Like a player to replace the possibly departing guy. Like this: Source: Phillies plan on calling up 3B Cody Asche. Points to Michael Young being traded today. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) July 30, 2013 The big question is where Young may…

  22. Quote of the Day: Paul Konerko minces no words whatsoever

    Jul 30, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox

    Paul Konerko was asked whether the trade rumors surrounding Jake Peavy, Alex Rios and other White Sox have negatively impacted the team: “Not really. We were sh***y before the rumors.” I love Paul Konerko. I love him like nobody’s business. And I hope he’s managing sometime soon.

  23. Jake Peavy likely to be scratched today: is a trade near?

    Jul 30, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Jake Peavy Getty

    Stuff that only happens at the trade deadline: a healthy pitcher scratched. That’s what Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune is reporting about  Jake Peavy. Gonzalez says Peavy is unlikely to make his scheduled start against the Indians today. This certainly suggests that a trade is near, as teams in negotiations for players would prefer it…

    diamondbacks logo small

    While the White Sox are reportedly telling teams that they would prefer to keep veteran right-hander Jake Peavy and “build around him,” Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers hasn’t given up hope.
