Last night news broke that the Nationals are indeed willing to trade Bryce Harper. Could one of the faces of the game be traded in the coming hours?
One name we likely won't see get traded is Adam Jones who already has used his 10-5 rights to veto a trade to Philadelphia. I respect Adam's decision to want to stay in Baltimore because of his family and the amount of charity work he does in the city. That shows that he is a greater person than ballplayer.
What former All-Stars will be traded today?
Former All-Star Zach Duke was traded yesterday to the Mariners as they hope to solidify the diversity in their bullpen.
Oh you didn't know that Zach Duke who has been a lefty reliever was at one time an All-Star? Well he was in 2009 when Phillies Manager Charlie Manuel added him as a late addition to the roster. He was also a 2xRookie of the Month in 2005 (July and August).
There are reports that the Indians and Phillies are very interested in Cutch, while it also seems possible that the Yankees would look to acquire the former NL MVP
I can see Cutch going to the Indians as that would be a great fit and he will be available to play daily.
Philly and NY look to be a platoon position if they were to acquire him as their outfields are already pretty crowded.
