CBS Sports' Jon Heyman hears from two rival GMs that the Pirates are listening to trade offers for closer Mark Melancon.
It appears to be a trend around the league, as Heyman also hears that Rangers closer Shawn Tolleson and Phillies fireballer Ken Giles are available for the right price. "Everyone's closer is available," said one GM. "People, especially the young GMs, have no fear of trading their closer." With a weak free agent class among relievers, teams could be willing to pay a big price in the trade market. Melancon led the majors with 51 saves this season while posting a 2.23 ERA and 62/14 K/BB ratio over 76 2/3 innings. He made $5.4 million in 2015 and is going into his final year of arbitration. Tony Watson could take over as closer if the Pirates trade him. Nov 10 - 11:58 AM
