According to Jeff Passan, a Padres are “pushing hard” to pierce catcher Derek Norris. Though Norris is in a midst of a bad age-27 season, we to consider a teams who skip out on Jonathan Lucroy will come calling. Norris had formerly been a league-average or improved hitter — and one who didn’t give it all behind with his mitt. Additionally, he won’t validate for giveaway group until after a 2018 season, definition he could fill a blank for mixed seasons.

Rangers director Volquez

Update: 11:10 p.m. ET

Knowing they need a revolution boost, a Rangers’ “inner round of front bureau personnel” went to Kansas City to watch Edinson Volquez representation on Sunday, per Evan Grant. The Rangers have been tied to several starting pitchers, including many of a Rays’ rotation. Yet Jon Daniels seems to be increasingly open to appropriation a let type. Volquez, a intensity giveaway representative during season’s finish depending on what happens with his mutual option, would fit a bill. By a way, Volquez threw a peculiarity start. That can’t harm his stock.

Mets meddlesome in Lucroy

Update: 10:25 p.m. ET

The Mets are chasing after Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy, according to Kristie Ackert of a New York Daily News. Per Ackert, a Mets have already offering Travis d’Arnaud for Lucroy straight-up, yet were rebuffed. The Brewers are pronounced to be weighing offers from a Indians and Rangers, among other teams, so a Mets will have to adult their offer to get a understanding finished — many as they did final year for Yoenis Cespedes.

Chapman, not Miller a priority in New York

Update: 10:10 p.m. ET

The Yankees won’t change their concentration onto trade Andrew Miller until if and when they finalize an Aroldis Chapman deal. That comes around ESPN.com’s Buster Olney, who records that Miller’s agreement runs by a 2018 season, giving a Yankees larger coherence than they’re enjoying with a soon-to-be free-agent Chapman. As such, it’s probable a Yankees confirm to reason onto Miller until a winter, or maybe even longer.

Chapman understanding fortuitous on prolongation talks?

Update: 9:20 p.m. ET

According to Rian Watt, the Aroldis Chapman trade could hinge on either a Cubs are means to close Chapman into an extension. Watt records that he’s listened a Cubs have an superb offer of 4 years and $60 million to Chapman, who would differently be authorised for giveaway group during season’s end. Reportedly, a rest of a sum — including a prospects concerned — have been concluded upon.

Cubs imminent understanding for Chapman?

Update: 8:35 p.m. ET

The Cubs are reportedly shutting in on an Aroldis Chapman trade, according to Jon Heyman. The understanding would embody during slightest tip shortstop awaiting Gleyber Torres, as good as presumably another square or two. The Cubs have been prolonged rumored in Chapman’s services, so this isn’t too startling of a development. We’ll see if a dual sides can finalize an agreement over a subsequent 24 hours.

Marlins sealed in on Hellickson?

Update: 7:36 p.m. ET

According to Nick Cafardo, a Marlins seem to have a many seductiveness in trade for Jeremy Hellickson. The Fish could use a boost to their rotation, and Hellickson, who now boasts a career-best strikeout-to-walk ratio, would seem to do a trick. Cafardo records that Mike Dunn could be partial of a lapse streamer to Philadelphia. Presumably that’s since Dunn’s income is about half of Hellickson’s $7 million, that would assistance emanate a required bill room for Miami. The Fish are also tied to Ricky Nolasco, Tommy Milone, and Eduardo Rodriguez — yet Rodriguez seems like a prolonged shot.

Greinke trade unlikely

Update: 7:15 p.m. ET

In box you’ve been wondering if a Diamondbacks competence try relocating Zack Greinke to get out from underneath his contract, a answer seems to be nah. Nick Cafardo talked to a source who pronounced a Diamondbacks would direct “a good lapse of players” as good as full fullness of Greinke’s $206.5 million contract. So, yeah, not happening.

Indians heading on Chapman?

Update: 2:35 p.m. ET

In a stability tale that is a
Aroldis Chapman
gossip mill, Bruce Levine of The Score (Chicago) reports that a Indians have offering a best understanding to a
New York Yankees
for Chapman. Levine adds, though, that a
Washington Nationals
are also being really assertive here.

Add Matt Moore to Miami’s wish list

Update: 2:25 p.m. ET

The Marlins have already been connected to
San Diego Padres
Andrew Cashner
in trade rumors, and now we can supplement
Tampa Bay Rays
lefty Matt Moore to a list, per Jon Heyman. Moore is 6-7 with a 4.31 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and has authorised 20 homers, yet he’s had good success in a past and it’s a flattering muted marketplace for starting pitchers this deadline.

D-Backs will listen on Miller

Update: 2:05 p.m. ET

This past offseason, a
Arizona Diamondbacks
traded tip altogether collect
Dansby Swanson
along with pitching awaiting
Aaron Blair
and outfielder
Ender Inciarte
Shelby Miller
. Miller is now in a minors after going 2-9 with a 7.14 ERA and 1.75 WHIP in 14 starts. He’s still not even authorised for giveaway group until after a 2018 season, yet …

That would be like profitable a reward cost for batch and afterwards offered it once it reached a comprehensive lowest point.

Giants out on Chapman

Update: 2:05 p.m. ET

We had listened a Giants in tie with
New York Yankees
Aroldis Chapman
, yet now it would seem they’ve been embellished from a field. Henry Schulman of a San Francisco Chronicle reports that a Giants are removing “radio silence” from Yankees GM Brian Cashman in talks involving Chapman. Schulman serve records that a problem is a Yankees don’t like a Giants’ plantation system.

So it would seem that Cashman is squeezing a field, even if zero is imminent.

Latest on Chapman

Update: 1:05 p.m. ET

So it’s apparently Chapman day in trade talk. Jack Curry of YES reports that “nothing is imminent” and that a Yankees are merely “fielding offers.” So that sounds reduction assertive than what we’d seen in other reports, where it sounded like a understanding competence be entrance down a dart as shortly as Sunday.

As for some of a teams involved. Andrew Baggarly of a Bay Area News Group says that a Giants feel like “the movement is elsewhere.” Might a
Chicago Cubs
Washington Nationals
be a favorite? In a annulment from earlier, Jon Heyman now reports that a Yankees have been unimpressed with a Nationals’ offers and he also throws a “Mystery Team” into a mix.
Houston Astros
, maybe?

Seems plausible.

Stay tuned, obviously.

Cubs ‘strong’ on Chapman

Update: 11:15 a.m. ET

The gossip indent for a
New York Yankees
closer is swirling and a latest from Fox’s Ken Rosenthal throws a Cubs in as a “strong” suitor. That’s not all, of course, as Rosenthal secondarily mentions a
San Francisco Giants
Los Angeles Dodgers
Cleveland Indians
Washington Nationals
(see next for some-more on a Nats/Chapman).

More teams in on Cashner

Update: 11:03 a.m. ET

Andrew Cashner
of a
San Diego Padres
has been removing tons of seductiveness after dual good starts (which usually changed his ERA down to 4.79). He’s a giveaway representative after a season, personification for a non-contender and it’s a mostly-barren starting pitching market, so it creates some sense. Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports names a
Miami Marlins
Houston Astros
are suitors and also throws in a
Baltimore Orioles
Detroit Tigers
Texas Rangers
and Giants as teams with interest.

#MysteryTeam for Chapman

Update: 10:23 a.m. ET

The concentration right now for a Yankees appears to be traffic Chapman and reports prove they’d like to hang things adult rather fast on this front. Late Saturday, Ken Davidoff of a New York Post reported a following:

An attention source told The Post that a Yankees had asked critical Chapman suitors — a list believed to embody a Nationals, a Cubs and a
Cleveland Indians
, as good as a poser group — for their best and final offers. While that doesn’t bind a trade of Chapman, a imminent giveaway agent, it creates such a transaction damn likely. The Yankees intend to reason onto Miller, who is sealed by 2018.

Mystery Team! we trust that’s a initial #MysteryTeam this trade season.

The Nationals competence be zeroing in, however.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that a Nationals “could be a favorite, if not the favorite” and that a Yankees are meddlesome in starting pitcher
Joe Ross

Though Ross is injured, this is a pierce that wouldn’t indispensably vigilance a Yankees as sellers and instead helps to make their register some-more well-rounded. With
Dellin Betances
Andrew Miller
, they already have late-inning, lock-down service and a young, peculiarity starting pitcher creates some-more clarity than carrying Chapman.

Frazier on a move?

Update: 10:23 a.m. ET

We’ve listened copiousness about
Chris Sale
a past several days, particularly on Saturday with a exhilarated trade rumors and him slicing adult some reversion jerseys in criticism of a collar, yet now
Todd Frazier
‘s name has emerged in trade rumors. Nick Cafardo of a Boston Globe says that Frazier has “emerged as a vital energy piece” and mentions a
New York Mets
as a probable alighting spot.

Frazier is attack usually .212 with a .300 on-base percentage, yet he also has 28 homers and 64 RBI this season. With
David Wright
injured, a
New York Mets
have been regulating
Jose Reyes
during third base.
Asdrubal Cabrera
is during short. Keep in mind that Frazier has knowledge during initial base, too. There’s coherence here.
