Here's a running list of trade rumors around the Major Leagues:
– Right hander Ryan Dempster could be on the move by the end of this week according to Jayson Stark of ESPN. His destination is still unknown, but we've learned that the Dodgers are frontrunners to land him, and according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports, Dempster's first choice would be the Dodgers, and his second choice the Braves.
Dempster has 10-5 rights and Rosenthal says that it's still unknown if he'd allow a trade to any other team. The right hander would like to play for a contender so he'll probably consider going to teams like the Red Sox, Nationals and Tigers that according to Rosenthal have shown interest in him.
– The New York Mets are desperately looking for bullpen help and according to a source close to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com, they are paying “close attention” to Royals' closer Jonathan Broxton.
– Indians manager, Manny Acta, told Jim Bowden of ESPNxm that the team's front office “has been really aggressive in trying to get an outfield bat or starting pitcher by the deadline.”
