Quick Hits: Dodgers' Matt Kemp on the block?

  • The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is convinced that former Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez is the front-runner to replace Braves manager Bobby Cox when he retires after the 2010 season. Gonzalez, a former Brave coach, is already familiar with the Braves organization and the current state of the division. Who else could be a potential replacement?
  • Multiple sources believe that the Yankees will make a run for a starting pitcher at the trade deadline. However, it won't be a big name pitcher like Cliff Lee or Roy Oswalt. Look for the Yankees to find a solid pitcher who is under the radar in terms of trade potential. Zack Greinke of the Royals and Ted Lilly of the Cubs are two targets. 
  • Astros pitcher Roy Oswalt told reporters he is open to a trade to the Rangers. Can't blame the guy for wanting to go from a last place team a first place one. 
  • The Dodgers are looking for pitching help and are willing to shop young guys like Matt Kemp and James Loney, according to ESPN.com. 
  • The Indians plan to start aggressively shopping Austin Kearns and Russell Branyan. It'll be interesting to see if they find any takers.
