Good morning baseball fans!
The Mets acquired James Loney on Saturday afternoon:
Loney, 32, was released by the Rays after not making the team in spring training and signed a minor-league deal with San Diego on April 8. His deal included a provision that would allow him to leave El Paso for any major-league opportunities, with the Padres having the right of first refusal if they wanted him on their major-league roster.
St. Louis designated Ruben Tejada for assignment.
The White Sox and Padres are discussing a trade involving James Shields:
The White Sox, who currently sit in first place in the AL Central with a 27-22 record, have indicated that they plan to be aggressive in trade talks, even with the non-waiver deadline more than two full months away. San Diego has been willing to shop Shields since last summer, with the Red Sox and Cubs among other teams with reported interest.
Chicago isn't the only team interested in Shields:
