Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports that Sean Burnett will receive $8 million over two years on his new deal with the Angels.

The deal also includes a $4.5 million team option (or $500,000 buyout) for a third year. It's not a bad signing given that Burnett was originally looking for a four-year deal and winds up getting one fewer year and $10 million less than Jeremy Affeldt. The southpaw held left-handed hitters to a .211/.245/.289 slash line in 2012.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Yankees and Cubs have agreed to an Aroldis Chapman trade.

New York will get shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres, outfield prospect Billy McKinney, right-hander Adam Warren, and one other player. More to come.

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports the Marlins have interest in Seattle starter Wade Miley.

Miley struggled in 2014 with the Red Sox and has been even worse since the offseason trade that sent him to the Mariners. Miami, a half-game up on the second Wild Card, should probably shoot a little higher. The 29-year-old left-hander is sitting on a 5.23 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 73/33 K/BB ratio through 105 innings this season, and he's owed $8.97 million in 2017.

Rival executives tell ESPN's Buster Olney that the Yankees have been pushing an Ivan Nova trade.

Nova is due to become a free agent after the 2016 season and doesn't seem like a qualifying offer candidate, so the Yankees might as well try to get something out of him. The 29-year-old right-hander has pitched very well in his last two starts but owns a pedestrian 4.65 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 72/22 K/BB ratio in 93 innings overall this season. Maybe a move to the National League would work.

Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports that outfield prospect Billy McKinney is also involved in the Aroldis Chapman trade.

So now we have McKinney, shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres, and right-hander Adam Warren heading to the Yankees along with a fourth unidentified piece. That is a massive haul for New York -- far better than what the Reds received from the Yankees for Chapman this past winter. McKinney has struggled this season at Double-A Tennessee, but he was considered a top-100 prospect leading into 2016 and the 2013 first-rounder is only 21 years old. Chicago landed McKinney from Oakland two years ago in the Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel trade.

Indians outfield prospect Bradley Zimmer has been promoted from Double-A Akron to Triple-A Columbus.

Fellow top outfield prospect Clint Frazier will join him on the move. Zimmer, 23, was slashing .252/.370/.472 with 14 home runs, 53 RBI, 31 stolen bases, and 57 runs scored through 92 games this season at the Double-A level. He needs to improve his overall plate discipline, but those counting stats are eye-popping to any fantasy baseball enthusiast. Zimmer was the 21st overall pick in 2014 out of the University of San Francisco. He should make his major league debut later this summer.

According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, Angels closer Huston Street is among the Giants' trade targets leading up to the August 1 deadline.

He's probably more of a backup plan, as the Giants have been linked to a number of other relievers having far better seasons. Street, 32, owns a rough 5.03 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in 19 2/3 innings this year out of the Anaheim bullpen. He has missed time with oblique and hamstring injuries. The right-hander is under contract for $9 million in 2017 and carries a $10 million club option for 2018.

Adrian Gonzalez blasted a grand slam in the first inning on Sunday, powering the Dodgers to a 9-6 victory over the Cardinals in St. Louis.

The Dodgers jumped on rookie right-hander Mike Mayers right out of the gate, with a pair of singles and a walk before Gonzalez unloaded on a towering grand slam to center field. He added a pair of singles, including a run-scoring knock in the second inning, finishing the night 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and four RBI. He's now hitting .284/.360/.412 with nine homers and 51 RBI.

The Rockies announced Sunday that top prospect David Dahl will be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.

The club gets the benefit of having a designated hitter for their series in Baltimore to begin the week, so they'll take a look at the sweet-swinging outfielder. With Carlos Gonzalez and Charlie Blackmon on the trade block, Dahl could be up with the big league club to stay. The 22-year-old is hitting .314/.394/.569 with 18 homers, 61 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 92 games between Double-A Hartford and Triple-A Albuquerque this season. He's immediately an interesting commodity in all mixed leagues.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers have expressed interest in acquiring veteran right-hander Edinson Volquez from the Royals.

Grant notes that the entire Rangers brass in charge of player personnel was on hand for Volquez's start on Sunday and the club has admitted that they're seeking a major upgrade to their rotation. The Royals haven't yet decided if they'll be buyers or sellers at next week's trade deadline. The right-hander's next start is conveniently against the Rangers in Arlington on Friday, so all he may need to do is change dugouts if a deal gets consummated.

Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports that the Mets offered Travis d'Arnaud straight up in a trade for Jonathan Lucroy and were refuted by the Brewers.

The Mets are reportedly still interested in acquiring Lucroy, but it's going to take more than just d'Arnaud to get a deal done. With several other clubs in the mix to acquire Lucroy, the Brewers can afford to sit back and demand a King's ransom for the hard-hitting backstop.

Trevor Story slugged his 27th homer of the year Sunday in the Rockies' 7-2 victory over the Braves.

It was a two-run shot in the fourth inning off Atlanta rookie Tyrell Jenkins. Story also doubled and scored in the first inning, finishing 2-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI. Only two middle infielders in major league history have registered 30-homer seasons by age 23: Alex Rodriguez and Nomar Garciaparra. Story is well on his way to becoming the third.
