If you want the latest news and rumors, keep checking back here throughout the day. As we hear trade rumors, we will add them below. We will keep the most recent on top. If something really juicy comes along, we will give that its own post. But all the other stuff will go here.
Also, if you see or hear something that we haven’t reported yet, feel free to leave it in the comments and we will check it out.
[9:30am] Hunter Pence was traded to the Phillies last night. And while there are several outfielders still available, BJ Upton is now the best remaining piece on the market.
Even though the Phillies no longer need an outfielder, there are still six other teams (Nationals, Royals, Indians, Pirates, Reds, Braves) that have been reported to have some interest in Upton. Is it a coincidence that almost all of the teams are in the NL?
Ken Rosenthal says the Braves are still interested in Upton, but they sem to have interest in several other outfielders also. So it would see that they will probably find a better deal elsewhere.
And if it means anything, both Joe Maddon and BJ Upton — neither of whom are named Andrew Friedman — don’t see a trade happening.
Still, at this point, we would be surprised if Upton was still with the Rays on Monday.
