The non-waiver trade deadline is like a tornado. You see it looming in the distance, there is a flurry of activity before it touches down, and while it is among the populace, everyone is trying to make sense of what is going on. Each team is somewhat a microcosm of what the trade deadline is. Front offices have plans and backup plans and backup plans to the backup plans. Whether...
Trade deadline is always a frenetic, tiring time for those who cover baseball and the networks devoted to the sport. Ken Rosenthal probably hasn’t gotten much sleep during the past week (maybe past two or three weeks) trying to work his sources for hot scoops on potential moves being made. MLB Network was also showing a little bit of fatigue on Friday as the clock approached the...
I have no idea what Ken Rosenthal was talking about earlier, but according to the Mets Michael Cuddyer feels great and could begin playing in rehab games next week. * * * * * * * * * * * As the Mets continue to explore outfield options, I couldn’t help noticing something that Ken […]
In yet another attempt to add reinforcements to their roster for the stretch run, the surprising New York Mets have acquired All-Star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes from the Detroit Tigers. Source: #Mets get Cespedes. Bruce Levine first. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 31, 2015 Even after picking up both Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe from the Atlanta Braves earlier in July...
This just in…. According to several reports the Mets have acquired Yoenis Cespedes from the Detroit Tigers. Ken Rosenthal has just confirmed it on MLB Network. Still no word on what the Mets have given up. But as I mentioned earlier Zack Wheeler is not part of the deal. Reportedly it’s two prospects but they […]
I had to laugh a couple of minutes ago when Ken Rosenthal said on MLB Network that if the Mets don’t get an outfielder for this deadline Mets fans are going to storm Citi Field. The worry is that the Mets are trying. Actually the tweet I read said the Mets are really really trying. […]
The Toronto Blue Jays a deal in place to acquire center fielder Ben Revere from the Philadelphia Phillies, FOX Sports Insider Ken Rosenthal confirms. Revere, 27, is hitting .298/.334/.374 with a homer, 26 RBI and 24 stolen bases in 96 games. Already this week, the aggressive Blue Jays have acquired ace left-hander David Price, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and reliever Mark Lowe.
Surprise, surprise… The Mets are now in the hotly contested Yoenis Cespedes pursuit along with several other teams. Ken Rosenthal first tweeted out that Mets trade talks with Reds for Jay Bruce have lost traction and that they’ve shifted their sights to Cespedes who is a free agent after the season. I think Cespedes would […]
The Minnesota Twins have acquired reliever Kevin Jepsen from the Tampa Bay Rays, as first reported by FOX Sports Insider Ken Rosenthal. Jepsen, 31, is 2-5 with a 2.81 ERA in 46 appearances this season. He has struck out 34 in 41 2/3 innings. In his eight-season major-league career, the right-hander has posted a 3.80 ERA. Jepsen will work in a setup role for closer Glen Perkins.
As the Mets continue to explore outfield options, I couldn’t help noticing something that Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports just reported. Rosenthal basically said that the team has some concerns that outfielder Michael Cuddyer “may not be back.” I thought that was kind of odd because I remember reading just a few days ago that […]
*UPDATE: Jim Salisbury has reported that the Toronto Blue Jays are now interested in Revere and talks regarding a deal are “heating up.” Sources say talks to send Ben Revere to Toronto are heating up. #phillies — Jim Salisbury (@JSalisburyCSN) July 31, 2015 With the 4 p.m. trade deadline just a few short hours away, the Phillies may not be done making moves after sending...
So, it’s been quite an eventful couple of days. The Dodgers have bolstered their rotation — something everyone thought and knew would happen — they just didn’t do it with a big-name pitcher. Yet. OK, so David Price and Cole Hamels have been dealt, and there is no pitcher of their caliber remaining on the market. But the Dodgers are still apparently in the market for a starting...
8:30 AM Update – Deadline Day! The first news of the day regarding the Mets and Jay Bruce comes from Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, who says that a deal for the Cincinnati Reds slugger looks like it’s going to happen and that the Mets will finally get that big bat they say they’re looking […]
This might actually be safe to report. After all the drama surrounding a potential Carlos Gomez trade from the Milwaukee Brewers to the New York Mets on Wednesday evening, it appears that Milwaukee has finally found a landing spot for the two-time All-Star outfielder.

After a historic night that ended with ace Cole Hamels being sent to the Texas Rangers in return for a large batch of prospects, the Phillies may have one more move up their sleeve before tomorrow’s 4 p.m. deadline.

Tears were shed, at least one manager was confused and upset and social media took a beating. So, what exactly happened in the proposed deal between the New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers that fell apart in the final stages Wednesday night? Why is Carlos Gomez still a Brewer, and why are Wilmer Flores and Zack Wheeler still Mets? FOX Sports Insider Ken Rosenthal offers some additional insight:
According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Milwaukee Brewers rejected the trade with the New York Mets because of concerns they had with the medical reports on Zack Wheeler and his physical. Nightengale adds that the Brewers still plan to trade Gomez by the Trade Deadline on Friday night. However Ken Rosenthal of Fox […]
Major League Baseball can be both fun and infuriating at the same time. Just a little while after it was wide reported that the Milwaukee Brewers had sent Carlos Gomez to the New York Mets comes this awesome piece of information: Alderson just told #Mets’ writers “there is no trade” for Gomez and that a deal “will not transpire.” — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July...
I know you all want to talk about the Mat Latos trade that was until it wasn’t and may be yet again, but… okay, fine, we will. Latos is in the Marlins dugout tonight, but most reports indicate that the deal will get done, except now Ken Rosenthal is saying that the Braves are the third team, but they don’t really have any need at all for Michael Morse either, but Joel Sherman...

7:45 PM Update It looks like Ken Rosenthal has flip-flopped and now agrees with Jon Heyman that the New York Mets have been discussing outfielder Carlos Gomez with the Milwaukee Brewers for most of today. Adam Rubin of ESPN New York just wrote that the Mets and Brewers are working in overdrive on a Carlos Gomez […]
Earlier today, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Miami Marlins struck a deal to send pitcher Mat Latos and outfielder Michael Morse to L.A. and three pitching prospects to Miami. It now appears that the deal is in jeopardy. Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times originally reported the deal and has now noted that the teams have yet to confirm the trade. According to Wittenmyer, there...
Los Angeles Dodgers ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw might be scratched from his start Wednesday night against the Oakland Athletics, FOX Sports Insider Ken Rosenthal first reported. And, no, Kershaw isn't about to be traded. Apparently, Kershaw is dealing with a sore hip/glute. Kershaw will bring a 29-inning scoreless streak into his next start. In his past three outings, he has...
Just two days after pulling the trigger on a deal for Reds righty Johnny Cueto, the Royals sent shockwaves around the league with their acquisition of utilityman Ben Zobrist from the Athletics.
