The Latest From Ken Rosenthal

The trade deadline may have passed, but we can still talk trades; you know, waiver trades and trades that didn't quite happen. Over at FOX Sports, Ken Rosenthal has a piece up that includes a host of trade tidbits and other stuff, so we'll cover that below:

  • The Yankees tried hard to acquire Astros lefty Wandy Rodriguez yesterday, but not because of GM Brian Cashman. According to Rosenthal, ownership had pushed for the deal, but the two sides couldn't come to an agreement. Money was likely the main factor; Rosenthal reports that the Yankees wanted the Astros to eat $17 million of Rodriguez's contract, while the Astros were only willing to eat a few million.
  • Cashman reportedly had seven untouchables in trade talks. Let's try to guess who those seven are: Jesus Montero, Dellin Betances, Manny Banuelos, Gary Sanchez and Austin Romine are highly likely, and Ivan Nova, Hector Noesi, Slade Heathcott and Eduardo Nunez are likely possibilities as well.
  • Clubs reportedly spoke with Cleveland about Ubaldo Jimenez after the team acquired him, but the Indians showed no interest in flipping the stud right-handed starter again. The Indians were discussing starter Fausto Carmona with other teams last week, though.
  • According to one source, the Rangers offered Oakland a package that included pitchers Robbie Erlin and Joe Wieland along with shortstop Leury Garcia in exchange for closer Andrew Bailey. Either way, the sides couldn't come to an agreement, and the Rangers ended up trading Erlin and Wieland to San Diego for Mike Adams.
