In an interview with ESPN New York radio, reporter Brian Windhorst, pretty well-connected to the Cleveland Cavaliers, reports that there is a "handshake agreement" between the Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves for a Kevin Love trade.
Poor Andrew Wiggins has been yo-yoed about since the day he was drafted, and now signed, the Cavs have to wait 30 days to trade him. It's assumed he's as good as gone, and the Cavs will have the most formidable 1-2 punch in the NBA. ANALYST:
Padres recall INF Jedd Gyorko from Triple-A El Paso.
Gyorko will fill in at second for the injured Corey Spangenberg as he heads to the DL. Gyorko was sent down a couple of weeks ago after a very rough start to the season for the Padres. During his stint in Triple-A he appears to have gotten somethings worked out as he's hit .279 with four homers, 9 RBIs, and 8 R in just 16 games. In 46 games with the big club this season he's hitting .210 with two home runs, 11 RBI, and 9 runs scored. Analysis: Matt Selz
GM Brian Cashman says the Yankees are not considering removing CC Sabathia from the rotation.
A 3-8 record on the year and a troubling 5.65 ERA is what is bringing up the questions about Sabathia's stay in the rotation. The Yankees briefly went to a six man rotation with Nova coming back from the DL, but have decided to move Adam Warren out to the pen, where he was dominating last season, and keep Sabathia in the rotation. Sabathia's last start was solid but no run support did not help his cause. It will be interesting to see what New York does going forward and whether they seek a starter at the trade deadline.
