Rays released RHP Danny Farquhar.

Farquhar was pushed off the Rays' 40-man roster before the All-Star break and he is now officially a free agent. The 30-year-old right-hander posted a 4.11 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 33/22 K/BB ratio in 35 innings this season out of the Tampa Bay bullpen.

Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press hears that the Brewers have expressed interest in Tigers veteran Justin Verlander.

The first-place Brewers could use another starting pitcher and the Tigers would probably eat some cash to grab some of the top young talent in Milwaukee's system. Verlander is owed around $60 million and has posted a disappointing 4.54 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 117 innings this season, though he was very good in 2016. Fenech adds that the Cubs, who just acquired Jose Quintana from the White Sox, are "still monitoring" the Verlander market. Houston's interest is said to be "minimal."

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Addison Reed is "attracting the most interest of any of the Mets' trade chips."

That's no real surprise given that Reed has posted a stellar 2.40 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 47/5 K/BB ratio in 45 innings this season and New York's other chips are Lucas Duda, Asdrubal Cabrera, and T.J. Rivera. There's known to be serious interest from the Red Sox and Brewers, along with a half-dozen other teams. Reed, a free-agent-to-be, would make sense as a bullpen rental for any contender.
Jul 20 - 2:04 PM

According to Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times, the Dodgers "remain in the mix" for Orioles closer Zach Britton.

They're also discussing a possible Justin Wilson trade with the Tigers. Los Angeles already has one of the top closers in baseball in Kenley Jansen, but Britton (or Wilson) would be lethal in a late-inning left-handed setup role. Britton, under contractual control through 2018, boasts a ridiculous 1.41 ERA over his last 224 innings dating back to the beginning of the 2014 season. He also has 125 saves in that span.

Randal Grichuk went 1-for-4 with a homer in his rehab debut Wednesday at Double-A Springfield.

Grichuk could return to the Cardinals' active roster ahead of Friday night's series opener against the Cubs, though he's not going to unseat Tommy Pham in left field. He'll be more of a bench bat. Grichuk, out since July 10 because of a lower back strain, is slashing just .215/.270/.408 with nine home runs and 74 strikeouts in 61 games this season at the major league level.

Will Smith (elbow) said he expects to be on the Giants' active Opening Day roster in 2018.

"Hell, yeah," the rehabbing left-hander told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. "You never want to get too far ahead because there are always setbacks, but it’s a personal goal I’ve set for myself." Smith underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in late March and that procedure typically requires 13-15 months of rehab, but relief pitchers can sometimes get back in less than a full calendar year.

Marlins acquired RHP Lukas Schiraldi, OF Brayan Hernandez, RHP Brandon Miller, and RHP Pablo Lopez from the Marlins for RHP David Phelps.

Schiraldi, a 15th-round pick in 2014, is basically a throw-in here. The 23-year-old right-hander holds a 4.65 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 284 1/3 career minor league innings and he has yet to make it out of High-A ball.

Marlins acquired RHP Pablo Lopez, OF Brayan Hernandez, RHP Brandon Miller, and RHP Lukas Schiraldi from the Marlins for RHP David Phelps.

Lopez, a 21-year-old starter from Venezuela, has posted an underwhelming 5.04 ERA in 100 innings this season with High-A Modesto. His good command is a plus, but the right-hander owns a weak 6.5 career K/9 in 288 1/3 total minor league frames. He'll probably need to miss more bats to advance to the majors.
