Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that the Padres and Twins are talking and one rumor has San Diego taking on Ricky Nolasco's contract as part of a deal.

It's interesting given that it's been reported elsewhere that the Padres are looking to cut some payroll. However, if they get the prospect(s) they want, perhaps taking on Nolasco's deal could be agreeable. The Twins have been looking for relief help, so Joaquin Benoit or possibly Craig Kimbrel could be fits.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that teams have "checked back in" with the White Sox on Jeff Samardzija, but it's "still not that likely" he's traded.

The White Sox sit only 3.5 games out of a Wild Card spot and appear poised to hold their assets and possibly even add to the club. Samardzija's fantasy owners surely would prefer a trade given the home park he's in and the poor defense behind him. The good news is that he's been really good of late in spite of those factors, posting a 2.66 ERA over his last eight starts.
Jul 31 - 11:31 AM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Dodgers are in "ongoing trade talks" with the Rangers involving Yovani Gallardo.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported earlier Friday that the chances of a Gallardo deal are "50/50." The Dodgers' rotation is full following the additions of Alex Wood and Mat Latos, so the club would figure to make an additional trade should they acquire Gallardo.
Jul 31 - 11:04 AM

Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that the Blue Jays' trade talks with the Phillies involving Ben Revere are "heating up."

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has confirmed that the Jays are in on Revere. It's unclear what the Phillies might receive in return, but Toronto makes sense for a landing spot for Revere since they're looking for left field help. The speedy outfielder could also be an option to hit leadoff.
Jul 31 - 11:00 AM

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Diamondbacks are considered a "long shot" to land Aroldis Chapman, as the Reds "now have stronger offers."

It's unclear which teams made the other offers, but CBS Sports' Jon Heyman notes that the Astros are in the mix and Chapman has also been connected to the Yankees. The flamethrower would obviously move into the closer role wherever he goes, so Luke Gregorson or Andrew Miller could be headed to a setup role.
Jul 31 - 10:56 AM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles are "closing in" on a trade for Gerardo Parra in exchange for pitching prospect Zach Davies.

CBS Sport' Jon Heyman says the deal is done, pending physicals. Parra has turned into a nice trade chip for Milwaukee by batting .328/.369/.517 with nine homers and nine stolen bases this season. The O's are also after Ben Revere as they look to remake their corner outfield spots.
Jul 31 - 10:30 AM

MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that Dan Haren is "drawing interest from several clubs."

Just Wednesday Frisaro reported that Haren was "shaping up as an August (trade) candidate," but it appears there's now a good chance of him getting moved Friday. The veteran right-hander boasts a 3.42 ERA and 1.09 WHIP this season and is making $10 million.
Jul 31 - 10:29 AM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick hears that there's a "50/50" chance of Yovani Gallardo being traded Friday.

He says that the Dodgers, Cubs and Blue Jays are still "in the mix" for the right-hander. The Rangers are open to dealing Gallardo, but Crasnick says they'll just keep him if they don't get a proposal they like and then make him a qualifying offer after the season.
