Andrew Miller Headshot

Nationals could be willing to trade Lucas Giolio for Andrew Miller.

Added 12 minutes ago Source
Considered by many to be the top pitching prospect in the game, Giolito could be quite a get for the Yankees. Miller, on the other hand, would completely solidify the Nationals' bullpen. The veteran lefty has had a tremendous season, as he currently sports a 1.39 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 15.3 K/9 across 45.1 innings of relief. Miller has picked up nine saves this year and was selected to his first All-Star team.
Pedro Severino Headshot

Nationals recalled Pedro Severino from Triple-A Syracuse.

Severino will join the Nationals in San Francisco. A corresponding move is still to be announced. Severino is not a highly-touted young player, but he is considered the Nationals' top catching prospect.
Chris Sale Headshot

White sox want Joey Gallo and Nomar Mazara from the Rangers in any deal for Chris Sale.

Added 1 hour ago Source
Trade rumors are swirling all around Sale right now, as the ace lefty is not only being pursued by the Rangers but the Yankees are also connected among others. The White Sox, however, are understandably not going to deal Sale without a king's ransom in return.
Ketel Marte Headshot

Ketel Marte (mono) has been hitting in the cage and throwing back in Seattle.

Added 1 hour ago Source
Marte has been out for nearly two weeks, but is likely close to a return to the Mariners' lineup. The young shortstop has posted a .273/.299/.358 slash line with 17 doubles and eight steals across 300 plate appearances this season.
Nick Vincent Headshot

Nick Vincent (back strain) will throw a second bullpen with Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday.

Added 1 hour ago Source
Vincent has been out all of July, but appears to be close to a return. The Mariners will certainly benefit from the 30-year-old righty rejoining the bullpen, as he put together a 3.47 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 42-to-9 K/BB ratio across 36.1 innings over the first three months of the season.
Steve Pearce Headshot

Rays are extremely likely to deal Steve Pearce before the deadline.

Added 1 hour ago Source
With Pearce putting together a terrific season at the plate (.912 OPS) and the Rays well out of the playoff picture, it is perfectly understandable why the team would shop one of their most valuable assets. Pearce is 33 years of age and set to become a free agent at the end of the season.
Taijuan Walker Headshot

Taijuan Walker's bullpen session went good and he expects to make a rehab start for Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.

Added 1 hour ago Source
Walker has been missing from the Mariners' rotation since July 5th due to tendinitis in his right foot. He seems to be progressing along in his recovery lately and could rejoin the Mariners in mid-August.
Mark Melancon Headshot

Multiple teams are interested in trading for Mark Melancon.

Added 1 hour ago Source
It is not surprising that several teams would be interested in a three-time All-Star that is approaching free agency. However, it would be surprising if the Pirates, who are only two games out of the second Wild Card spot in the N.L., dealt Melancon. The 31-year-old closer has nailed down 30 saves while pitching to a 1.51 ERA so far this season.
Nelson Cruz Headshot

Nelson Cruz (foot) has returned to the Mariners starting lineup on Friday.

Added 2 hours ago Source
Cruz has been out of action since Tuesday due to his foot issue, but he is back in the lineup Friday afternoon. The veteran slugger will bat cleanup against Cubs' lefty Jon Lester.
