CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the White Sox will be fielding trade inquiries on Alejandro De Aza following the acquisition of Adam Eaton.

Eaton will take over in center field, leaving De Aza without a position. De Aza is projected by MLBTradeRumors.com to make $4.4 million in his second year of arbitration this winter. It's not a bad price to pay for a guy that's batted .278/.343/.421 with 30 homers and 58 steals over his last two and a half seasons.

MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports that there's a possibility of Yovani Gallardo being traded to the Blue Jays.

Texas just beefed up its rotation with the Cole Hamels trade, but the club is still buried in the American League Wild Card race and could sell some parts. Gallardo is due to become a free agent this winter. If the price is right, it sounds like the Rangers will move him.

Cardinals acquired 1B/OF Brandon Moss from the Indians for LHP Rob Kaminsky.

Moss has struggled to produce consistent numbers offensively since developing a hip injury last summer and there hasn't been much indication that he's going to turn it around. The 31-year-old does have some pop and he does fit the Cardinals' need for a corner outfield and first base type with Matt Holliday (quad) back on the shelf, but Kaminsky is no small price. Moss, who's under contractual control through 2016, will likely split time between first base and left field in St. Louis.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Tyson Ross is drawing "intense interest" from many.

Heyman suspects that the Astros may be at the forefront, though he also ties in the Blue Jays, Cubs, Dodgers, and "many, many others." Ross, 28, owns a 3.03 ERA and 332 strikeouts in 323 1/3 innings since the beginning of the 2014 season and he is under contract through 2017. Everybody loves a good, cost-controlled starting pitcher.

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, MLB executives are "absolutely convinced" that Tigers lefty David Price is going to wind up with the Dodgers.

Nightengale suspects that Los Angeles will fork over top pitching prospect Julio Urias to get it done. Price is also drawing heavy interest from the Yankees, Giants, and Blue Jays, but the Dodgers have the young talent to beat all the other suitors. And they'll be a good bet to lock Price up long term once they have him in their grasp.

Red Sox manager John Farrell acknowledged Wednesday that Pablo Sandoval's weight is an issue.

It's the first time Farrell has addressed this topic since spring training, when he was in full support of Boston's new acquisition. The burly third baseman got thrown out at home on a ball he should have scored on Wednesday night against the White Sox and had to be lifted from the game two innings later due to dehydration. "There are ongoing efforts to support that, to try to get him in the best shape possible," said Farrell. "That's something Pablo has dealt with his entire career. It continues to be addressed."

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Mets backed out of the proposed trade to acquire Carlos Gomez from the Brewers due to concern over his hip issue.

Scott Boras, the agent for Gomez, has stated that his client is "injury-free" and that he has "no problem whatsoever" with his hip. The Mets will have to continue shopping elsewhere to acquire the big bat they would like to add to the outfield.

Albert Pujols went yard for the 30th time this year, but the Angels wound up losing on Wednesday to the Astros by a 6-3 score.

Pujols did his part in attempting to spur a comeback, clubbing a solo home run in the ninth inning against Luke Gregerson to make it 6-2, but the Halos ultimately fell short. He went 1-for-4 on the night. Pujols is one homer shy of Mike Trout's 31 for the major league lead. He's also knocked in 64 runs while hitting .260/.323/.539.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Phillies will acquire Matt Harrison, Alec Asher, Jerad Eickhoff, Nick Williams, Jorge Alfaro, Nick Williams, and Matt Harrison in exchange for Cole Hamels and Jake Diekman.

Alfaro, Williams, and Thompson are the three best prospects in the deal, and represent a nice return package for the Phillies. The Rangers get another ace to pair with Yu Darvish for the next few seasons as they strive to return to glory in the American League West. Hamels has a cool 3.64 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 137/39 K/BB ratio in 128 2/3 innings this season and he's coming off a no-hitter last Saturday against the Cubs.

Lance McCullers pitched well in a winning effort on Wednesday against the Angels, allowing only one run in seven innings of work.

The right-hander gave up an RBI triple to Conor Gillaspie in the second inning, but that was it. He scattered five hits while walking none and striking out five. With the win, the Astros retake sole possession of first place in the AL West over the Angels. McCullers has been quite effective in his first 13 major league starts, brandishing a 2.48 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and a 78/27 K/BB ratio over 76 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Rangers in a road start next.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports confirms that the Rangers have agreed to a deal to acquire Cole Hamels from the Phillies.

TR Sullivan of MLB.com had first reported that the two sides were very close on ironing out a deal. Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reported that Jorge Alfaro, Jerad Eickhoff and Nick Williams will head to the Phillies, while Jake Diekman will join the Rangers. The Phillies will also send cash to the Rangers as part of the deal. Expect everything to be finalized and officially announced on Thursday.

Bryce Harper hit two home runs and knocked in four runs in a 3-for-4 effort, helping the Nationals take down the Marlins on Wednesday.

Harper drilled a three-run home run to break a 2-2 tie in the fifth inning, then added a solo shot in the eighth for good measure. That ends a nine-game homerless streak and allows Harper to retake the National League lead in home runs with 29. He carries a superb .335/.463/.690 batting line with 68 RBI.
