MLB trade rumor roundup: 2 days to go

Jason Miller

While there were three actual trades going down on Monday, there was a lot going on behind the scenes. Here's a quick recap of everything you need to know before the trade deadline.

While the run-up to the 2013 non-waiver trade deadline has been uncharacteristically quiet, we did start seeing some action on relievers heading to contending teams on Monday.

That leaves us with all of today and most of tomorrow (the actual deadline is tomorrow, Weds 07/31 at 4:00PM ET) to figure out everything about everything and fill in the holes of every somewhat-contenting team, right?

Not so fast. As Matt pointed out, the addition of the 2nd Wild Card could be making it more difficult for certain teams to decide whether they're buyers or sellers. Of course, I always say if you don't know you already have your answer.

Perhaps another day will help convince them to make their move, perhaps not. The Royals are supposedly pulling out of any discussions to their obvious detriment, what with being seven games out of the Wild Card and all.
