Good morning baseball fans!
Pittsburgh is not interested in moving Gerrit Cole and Andrew McCutchen ahead of the non-waiver trade deadline:
But the Pirates aren’t rebuilding, they’re just not playing as well as they could. Breaking either McCutchen or Cole into a handful of prospects would, at least for now, feel like a surrender to an army that was just passing by. We’ll see if Huntington and the Pirates are a bit more open to having visitors several weeks down the line; after all, they’ve only won six games since May 28.
Yoenis Cespedes says he’s ready to return to the Mets lineup, but New York is not rushing him back.
Tampa Bay added outfield depth, acquiring Oswaldo Arcia from the Twins in exchange for a player to be named later.
San Francisco is considering trading for Yoenis Cespedes, who can fill the Giants’ void at third base:
Escobar, 33, has appeared exclusively at third base for the Halos so far this season but has experience at second base and shortstop in his career. He has hit well in his first season as an Angel, posting a .310/.359/.409 line with three homers in 69 games.
A Mets-Jose Reyes reunion reportedly seems likely.
