MLB Rumors: Frankie Montas Becomes Yankees' #1 Target.Rockies can keep Daniel Byrd

The trade deadline is four days away, and the biggest pitching chips dropped late Friday night. Reds send right-hander Luis Castillo to Mariners, acquire four prospectsThe trade likely leaves Seattle out of the running for Nationals prodigy Juan Soto. The market is said to have slumped to four teams.With that in mind, there are rumors of a Saturday trading deadline.

Rocky Mountains likely to keep bards

According to The Athletic, the Rockies will “almost certainly” keep close to Daniel Byrd by the trade deadline. Colorado wants to re-sign him, but the 37-year-old Bird will be a free agent after the season. Last year, the Rockies did not trade Trevor Story and John Gray by the deadline, both leaving as free his agents. The team didn’t even receive Gray’s draft pick reward.

Bird, the 2020 NL Comeback Player of the Year, remains the top bat-miss and ground-getter. He could help in any contender’s bullpen. The Rockies have a history of zig-zagging when other teams zig-zig, but it’s not yet time to change their minds and change their field offer to the Bard. There are enough. Keeping the bard is very on-brand for Rocky in last place.

The Blue Jays are one team interested in Tigers right-hander Michael Fulmer. Press MLB.comFulmer pitched a scoreless eighth inning in Toronto on Friday. The Tigers have some relief pitchers before the deadline. Among them are Andrew Chafin and All-Star Gregory Soto, but with free agency on the horizon, Fulmer has an urgency to move him.

Pitching is a top priority for a Blue Jays team that has been in tears offensively in recent weeks. Fulmer transformed into his machine, a slider that missed the bat, but Walk he also ran into trouble. He’s the kind of rental his reliever who moves to meet deadlines every year and upgrades every contender’s bullpen.

With Castillo off the board, Athletics right-hander Frankie Montas became the Yankees’ number one target. USA Today reportedAll must go to Oakland and Montas is the top of the team’s remaining trade chips. The right-hander missed his two starts earlier this month with a minor shoulder problem, but has shown strength in those two starts and has been pitching at a high level in recent years. .

New York wants a rotation upgrade and will probably have to win a bidding war to get Montas. It is attractive because as a player you are under the control of your team. He’s not on loan, and as Castillo’s trade has shown, the price for an Impact starter’s postseason 2 run is high.

Athletics and Brewers have discussed Ramon Laureano outfielder new york postLaureano is one of the A’s remaining trade chips and will be a long-term addition as he will remain under the team’s control until 2025. Center field is the Brewers’ weakness, and Laureano is better than the Jonathan Davis/Tyrone Taylor platoon.

Milwaukee, who are currently leading the pack in NL Central, could use another bat to lengthen their lineup, and Laureano will also bring a speed element. His defense tends to be overrated—Laureano’s hands are great, but his range and routes are so-so—but the Brewers’ center fielder has hit .213/.272/.313 this year. You are fighting for the division title.
