Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Cubs will acquire Dan Haren from the Marlins.

Jul 31 - 1:25 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mets are talking to the Tigers about Yoenis Cespedes.

Talks with the Reds about Jay Bruce appear to be losing steam, so the Mets are looking at other outfielders. Rosenthal notes that Cespedes is "one of their many options," as they've also been connected to Will Venable and Rajai Davis. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says that the Nationals "could be a possibility" for Cespedes.
Jul 31 - 1:14 PM

Orioles acquired OF Gerardo Parra from the Brewers for RHP Zach Davies.

Two months later, the Orioles have replaced Alejandro De Aza with another Alejandro De Aza, but one who happens to be in the midst of a career season. Or, at least, a career three months so far. Parra was hitting .328/.369/.517 for Milwaukee, a huge improvement over his .265/.316/.387 lines from the previous two seasons. He's never played in the AL before, so he's facing a transition, and most likely, he'll begin to revert to something closer to his career numbers. That still probably makes him the Orioles' best option in left field against right-handers. He's just not really likely to be a difference maker.
Jul 31 - 12:55 PM

Brewers recalled RHP Tyler Thornburg from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He's taking Jonathan Broxton's spot on the roster. Thornburg is getting another shot despite posting a 5.28 ERA at Triple-A.

Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that trade talks between the Mets and Reds involving Jay Bruce "may have lost momentum."

It had been looking like earlier Friday that the deal was close to the finish line, but Crasnick is saying the Reds are "having second thoughts about the Mets' trade package." It's unclear at this point how likely it is that talks will pick back up. The Mets are looking at other outfielders in addition to Bruce.
Jul 31 - 12:48 PM

Brewers acquired RHP Zach Davies from the Orioles for OF Gerardo Parra.

The 22-year-old Davies has taken a step forward this season, amassing a 2.84 ERA and an 81/33 K/BB ratio in 101 1/3 innings in Triple-A. He's not viewed as having a ton of upside, but if he makes it as a fourth starter -- which is a definite possibility -- that seems like a great return for two months of Parra. The Brewers will likely send him to Triple-A for now, but he could make his major league debut before the year is out.
Jul 31 - 12:48 PM

Orioles designated RHP Bud Norris for assignment.

Norris lost his rotation spot earlier this month and holds a 7.06 ERA on the season. The Orioles should be able to find a trade partner for him, although they'll surely have to eat some of his $8.8 million salary.
Jul 31 - 12:44 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that talks between the Yankees and Padres regarding Craig Kimbrel "broke down" on Thursday.

ESPN's Buster Olney adds that the two sides haven't had any talks on Friday, so it appears that ship might have sailed. The Yankees are still in the market for a reliever, though, with Carter Capps and possibly Aroldis Chapman piquing their interest.
