Here's a running list of trade rumors around the Major leagues:
– The Padres might wait until the winter to trade third baseman Chase Headley according to Buster Olney of ESPN. He says that the Padres aren't “far down the road in their Headley trade talks,” so they might wait until the off season when more teams would be involved.
– The Pittsburgh Pirates are interested in Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo according to Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. He adds that the Indians could ask for Starling Marte in return.
– According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the Boston Red Sox have called the Rangers and Braves within the last 48 hours to gauge interest in right handed pitcher Josh Beckett, although no deal is imminent yet. The Red Sox called the Rangers and Braves, because they feel Beckett would waive his no trade clause (10/5) in order to go with either team. A source close to Passan adds that although the Dodgers didn't receive a call from the Red Sox, they could be interested in him.
