MLB Trade Rumors, News, and Notes
- The Mets will reportedly be expecting at least one Grade-A prospect and one good Grade-B prospect in exchange for shortstop Jose Reyes. I suppose the Giants could possibly build a deal around Zach Wheeler and Gary Brown, or the Reds could build one around Devin Mesoraco and Zack Cozart or Billy Hamilton.
- The Phillies continue to check in on relief help and right-handed hitting, and rival executives expect them to be active near the deadline.
- Houston will discuss right fielder Hunter Pence and lefty starter Wandy Rodriguez, but they're expected to have huge asking prices.
- Some rival executives have wondered whether the Braves could consider trading starter Jair Jurrjens (10-3 W-L, 2.07 ERA) because the right-hander's value is at its peak.
