MLB trade rumors roundup: Justin Verlander, Justin Wilson, and more

A few big names are being bandied about in advance of the trade deadline, but until they actually get the call to say they’re going to another team they are technically only rumors in the rumor mill. So once again, we’ve rounded up all of the day’s hottest (or not so hot) trade rumors in one easy place for you to consume.

The Astros would really like to nab at least one of the Tigers’ available Justins, if not both. They’re not the only ones though, as the Brewers are also looking at acquiring the Verlander variety of Justin, while multiple teams are making calls about Wilson.

The Rockies have bullpen needs and management isn’t afraid to talk about it.

Boston is still reportedly very interested in the Giants’ Eduardo Nu?ez, because they are still obviously in need of a third baseman to fix their extensive problems at the hot corner.

In 48 games at third this year, Nu?ez has committed seven errors, and sports a -7 Rtot alongside a -3 Rtot (which would translate into -20 and -9 for a year’s worth of work at the hot corner). He also has a .941 fielding percentage, a full 23 points below league average.

So no, he would not be a significant upgrade defensively based on what Boston is currently working with. But they needed to do something, and with a a .297/.322/.409 line and four homers, 27 RBIs, 19 doubles, and 17 steals, he’s something that works.

Getting some offensive support and letting Devers settle in for Cheap Yankees Jerseys the time being is their best option and they went for it. Now they hope by the end of the season, when Nu?ez finishes up this Echl Cheap Jerseys rental stint and heads for free agency, Devers has successfully turned into the savior everyone expects him to be.
