The A’s have made their first upgrade of deadline season, acquiring veteran left-handed reliever Andrew Chafin from the Cubs in exchange for minor league outfielder Greg Deichmann and minor league right-hander Daniel Palencia, per a club announcement.

BA just updated their TOP 100 Prospect List with this year's draft picks and moved players around based on their performance so far this year. Brennen Davis moves up from 62 to 31. Brailyn Marquez is off the list (hasn't pitched this year), and Miguel Amaya is still off.

Although the Cubs have a number of players up for grabs, don't count on Kyle Hendricks being part of the exodus. The pitcher is "definitely not being shopped" according to a source, and barring an unexpectedly great offer, the Cubs are "not trying to move him."

yup, 1 left.
risky(ish) re-sign given his past performance and low power output vs this single awesome season (leading NL in hits, currently). he's gonna get $10m+ in arb if he keeps up his current pace. average at best glove at 2nd, but he keeps managing to hang out there when people have had him penciled in as an eventual full-time OF'r for years.

Doesn't Frazier have an add'l year of control left? Regardless, still don't understand the light return for Darvish plus Caratini.

one of the many "best" things about that quote from our dear leaders was it happened the same week as Ricketts-family-led Marquee Raine Acquisition Corp had a $375,000,000 IPO in order to fund their "as of yet undertermined" entry into owning a sports betting company. they were looking for $325,000,000 so hey, good for them for getting that extra $50m.

not gonna lie...looking at what PIT got from SD for 2 months (and playoffs) of a.fraizer vs what the cubs got for years of a cheap ace...feeling a bit ripped off again.
they got their #5 club prospect and a couple other good pieces (though 1 is just a relief pitcher).

few days old "news" but it seems the allegations against starlin castro (domestic abuse) are serious enough that WAS doesn't expect him to rejoin the team at all this season...not because of legal issues, but because they may want to wash their hands of him.
his entire MLB career might be over at this point. 31 years old and not having a bad season for a middle IF'r (especially the last couple weeks before being put on leave).
