The trade due date is 4 days away and late Friday night the most significant pitching chip fell as the Reds sent out righty Luis Castillo to the Mariners for 4 potential customers. The trade most likely takes Seattle out of the running for Nationals wunderkind Juan Soto, whose market is stated to be down to 4 groups. With that in mind, here are Saturday’s trade due date reports.

Montas now Yankees’ No. 1 target


With Castillo off the board, Athletics righty Frankie Montas is now the No. 1 target for the Yankees, reports U.S.A. Today. Everything need to enter Oakland and Montas is the group’s leading staying trade chip. The right-hander missed out on 2 starts with a small shoulder problem previously this month, however he’s looked strong in his 2 starts back, and he’s pitched at a high level for numerous years now.

New York is looking for a rotation upgrade and will probably need to win a bidding war to get Montas. Several other competitors require rotation assistance and Montas is appealing since he will stay under group control next season as an arbitration-eligible gamer. He is not a leasing, and as the Castillo trade convention, the rate for 2 postseason runs of an effect starter is high.

A’s, Brewers have actually talked Laureano


The Athletics and Brewers have actually talked about outfielder Ramón Laureano, according to the New York Post. Laureano is among the A’s leading staying trade chips and he will stay under group control through 2025, so he’s a long-lasting addition. Center field has actually been a weak point for the Brewers all season and Laureano represents an upgrade over the Jonathan Davis/Tyrone Taylor army.

Currently in top place in the NL Central, Milwaukee might utilize another bat to extend the lineup and Laureano brings a speed aspect too. His defense tends to be exaggerated — Laureano’s arm is leading of the line, though his variety and paths are simply okay — however Brewers center fielders have actually struck .213/.272/.313 this year, which’s not going to fly when you’re fighting for a department title.
