Good morning baseball fans!
The big news as some of you wake up on this Monday morning is the apparent deal that is getting close between the Cubs and Yankees that would send Aroldis Chapman to the Windy City. The package going back to the Yankees would include top shortstop prospect, Gleyber Torres.
It’s finally Alex Bregman time, as the Astros call up their top prospect and he will join the team today.
Jonathan Lucroy is a hot topic among trade candidates, and the Mets, Rangers and Indians are all interested in the Brewers catcher.
A hard task, but Dave Cameron of FanGraphs tries to predict the trade deadline moves for all 30 MLB teams.
Toronto designated Drew Storen for assignment.
Making a case for trading Chris Sale or Jose Quintana.
Up the middle, the team would have a foundation for years to come at shortstop and second base. The double play combo of Tim Anderson and Trea Turner is fast, can hit, and is under control for six years each.
The White Sox should be focusing on creating organic change through cost-controlled young talent. While the DeRosa trade proposal is a hypothetical, it demonstrates the extreme value both Sale and Quintana have in this market. If the Sox decided to keep Sale and trade Quintana, is it out of the question for the Rangers to give up top prospectsLewis Brinson (#13 overall on MLB.com) and Joey Gallo (#7 Overall) for Quintana? What about a package constructed around Rafael Devers (#14 Overall) from the Red Sox?
It may be a tough pill to swallow, but it may be the pill that ends up pushing the White Sox into contention in a league where mediocrity just won’t cut it.
With the trade deadline drawing closer, the MLB Week-in-Review will be your number one stop to catch up on any news that you may have missed during the week.
