Scratch one more team from the pursuit of Jonathan Lucroy. Sources say the Tigers are now out of that derby.

The Indians could pursue a deal for Andrew Miller, or Jonathan Lucroy -- and presumably, ask from NYY, MIL would be on some of same players.

Some evaluators in the industry love the Cashner trade for the Padres, in the value exchange and what SD got back for Cashner, Rea.

How historically poor have the Mets been by hitting .204 with runners in scoring position this season? Well, the last team to finish a season with a lower average with RISP was the 1969 San Diego Padres at .201. They went 52-110 that year.

The Marlins need rotation help, but Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea project as just minor upgrades the rest of the way. The cost is 19-year-old first baseman Josh Naylor, last year's first-round pick. A good upside play for the Padres for an impending free agent and a No. 5-type starter.

Padres are getting both first base prospect Josh Naylor and right-handed pitcher Luis Castillo in their deal with the Marlins in exchange for veteran starters Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea. Padres continue to be huge winners as "sellers" continuing philosophy of quality over quantity with no concerns of how far away the prospects are away from the big leagues. Marlins must make post-season for this deal to work for them.

I have heard the Mets have no intention of trading Double-A prospects Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith. As for the Brewers and Jonathan Lucroy, Milwaukee officials came back to the Mets on Thursday with a proposal that was not out-of-hand rejected. The Mets previously had believed any chance of landing Lucroy was dead. Still, Mets personnel don't have a handle on whether Milwaukee's interest in a deal with them is genuine or being used to drive up bids elsewhere for Lucroy.

I'm hearing there is nothing imminent with the Mets involving a trade. So if anything materializes, and there are no guarantees, it is a lot more likely to come closer to Monday's 4 p.m. ET non-waiver trade deadline. Remember, the Mets acquired Addison Reed last year in August via a waiver deal.

Marlins newest starting pitchers Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea will benefit from a much improved defensive infield as pointed out by @bbtn Alex Cora. Marlins have +14 infield defensive runs saved while the Padres are -18. However, the Marlins grossly over paid in the trade by including last year's first round pick 19-year old Josh Naylor who profiles out to a middle of the order impact bat. Another indication on how strong the sellers market really is. The trade being in place was first reported by ESPN's Buster Olney.
