Addendum: The Blue Jays aren't interested in Ben Revere AT CURRENT ASKING PRICE; nothing current. PHI talking to some other team.

ICYMI: Ryan Rua hits inside-the-park HR

The Rangers outfielder used his legs to turn a line drive to center field into a four-bagger.


Reds-Mets talking Wheeler-Bruce swap

Medical information is being reviewed for a potential trade including Mets SP Zack Wheeler and Reds OF Jay Bruce, according to ESPN's Adam Rubin. New York turns to Bruce (.257 BA, 17 HRs) after a trade for Carlos Gomez fell through. Wheeler is recovering from Tommy John surgery.

There is some speculation within the industry about a possible BOS/Cubs/Padres three-way blockbuster taking shape. Lots of pieces that fit.

Dodgers making moves -- but not big ones

L.A. picked up quality SPs Alex Wood and Mat Latos on Thursday. But Tim Kurkjian explains the Dodgers' reluctance to trade for aces Cole Hamels and David Price. And it had to do with an 18-year-old.

National League leaders in outfield OPS: 1) Harper, 1.153; 2) Stanton, .952; 3) Gerardo Parra, .886; 4) McCutchen, .880.

Report: Orioles getting Gerardo Parra

Baltimore has agreed to trade minor leaguer Zach Davies for Brewers OF Parra pending physicals, according to ESPN and multiple reports. Parra's in the midst of an MLB-best 14-game hitting streak. He would be the second outfielder dealt by Milwaukee in as many days (Carlos Gomez on Thursday).


Kurkjian: Yankees will be active today

"The Yankees are on the war path to try to find some pitching help. [Padres closer] Craig Kimbrel certainly is an option."

Adage to remember today (from one GM): Buyers make more mistakes than sellers because buyers are more emotional. Sellers are more rational

Teams talking to #WhiteSox say they're struggling with how impact of Cespedes or Upton would impact roster. Already overloaded at OF/DH/1B
