It's no surprise Cubs manager Joe Maddon has elected to go with 8 righties in his lineup when his team takes on Chris Sale on Thursday night. Matt Szczur will start in left field while Ben Zobrist is in right. Anthony Rizzo is the lone lefty in the lineup as left handers are hitting just .189 off Sale this year. Righties are hitting .221.

According to one GM the Dodgers are "in" on almost every part of the trade market from top starters Sale and Archer to top relievers Davis and Miller to top bats like Bruce and Cargo and will certainly be an interesting team to watch as the Monday deadline approaches.

Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy is out of the lineup today against Arizona lefty Robbie Ray, but hold the hysteria. It's a day game after a night game and Lucroy is hitting .238 vs. left-handers this season, so it makes sense for Brewers manager Craig Counsell to rest him in favor of Martin Maldonado. There's a good chance Lucroy gets moved by Monday's deadline, but he's sitting today because it was a scheduled day off -- not because a trade is imminent.
