Ken Rosenthal's latest touches on four players that may be the subject of trade talks in the coming weeks -- most notably Jose Reyes. Reyes has been the subject of trade talks for quite some time, but given his success (.346/.391/.529), the New York Mets are facing a lot of pressure from the public to keep the fan favorite. Rosenthal notes that the Mets aren't looking to trade Reyes at the moment, but they would listen if a suitor "bowled them over." The price to acquire Reyes obviously won't be cheap.

Other notes --

  • The Orioles want to discuss a contract extension with shortstop J.J. Hardy before the season is over, meaning they're probably not looking to trade him.
  • While Orioles RHP Jeremy Guthrie is a trade target for many clubs and eligible for free agency after next season, the Orioles view him as "difficult to replace."
  • Oft-injured Mariners LHP Erik Bedard would be a risky trade acquistion, but one scout says that somebody is going to take him down the stretch (this, of course, assumes that the Mariners become sellers).
