Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Braves would receive Hector Olivera from the Dodgers as part of the rumored three-team deal with the Marlins.
The Braves would send Jim Johnson and Alex Wood to the Braves and in return acquire Michael Morse, a competitive balance draft pick along with Olivera.
Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Wilmer Flores will head to the Brewers with Zack Wheeler in exchange for outfielder Carlos Gomez.
It's unclear if he'll be utilized at shortstop for the Mets, or if he'll take over their vacancy at third base. The 23-year-old was hitting .249/.281/.379 with 10 homers and 40 RBI in 92 games with the Mets this season. It's a nice haul for the Brewers in exchange for a year-plus of Gomez.
According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Zack Wheeler will head to the Brewers as part of the trade to acquire Carlos Gomez.
The 25-year-old right-hander is in the process of recovering from Tommy John surgery and isn't expected to return until midway through the 2016 season. He owns a career 3.50 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 275/125 K/BB ratio over 285 1/3 big league innings.
Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets have agreed to a deal with the Brewers to acquire Carlos Gomez.
As rumored, Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores will be headed back to Milwaukee in the trade. The deal is done pending physicals, so don't expect an official announcement to take place until Thursday. Gomez returns to the organization where he began his big league career as a 21-year-old in 2007.
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that Alex Wood and Jim Johnson could be on their way to the Dodgers as part of a three team deal with the Marlins.
The Braves would be receiving at least Michael Morse and a compensation pick from the Marlins in the deal that would send Mat Latos to the Dodgers. This one appears to be gaining traction and a deal could be finalized before the night is through.
Logan Morrison was forced to leave Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks with a minor thumb injury.
It's unclear what exactly he did to injure the thumb, but it's believed to be a minor ailment. He's considered day-to-day.
Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that if the Mets and Brewers are able to work out a deal for Carlos Gomez, Juan Lagares is expected to head to the Brewers.
Lagares would seemingly be squeezed out of the Mets lineup in such a deal, and the defensive wizard would have an opening to play everyday in center field in Milwaukee. Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores have also been mentioned as possibilities to be included in such a deal.
Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Braves are expected to send a young pitcher to the Dodgers who would immediately join their rotation.
That's if everything else works out in the reported deal that would send Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers. It's still unclear what the Braves would receive in return, or who that young pitcher going the other way would be. Talks appear to be gaining steam though, so stay tuned.
