BREAKING NEWS: The Phillies have traded for Cleveland Indians ace Cliff Lee. The Indians will be sending Lee, along with Ben Francisco, to the Phils for prospects Jason Knapp, Jason Donald, Carlos Carrasco, and Lou Marson.
Now that the Phils have found their man in Lee, the chances aren't looking good that the Jays will move Roy Halladay.
In another deal made today, the Pirates traded Ian Snell and Jack Wilson to the Mariners for Ronny Cedeno, Aaron Pribanic, Jeff Clement, Brett Lorin, and Nathan Adcock.
The Red Sox are still looking into acquiring Adrian Gonzalez from the San Diego Padres, but a deal isn't looking likely. They are also considering trading for Victor Martinez of the Indians.
The Giants are reportedly interested in Freddy Sanchez, Mark Teahen and Marco Scutaro.
Surprisingly, this might be a very quiet deadline for the New York Yankees.
ESPN's Buster Olney is reporting he fully expects Indian's catcher Victor Martinez to be moved within the next 48 hours. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: The Giants are working hard to acquire Freddy Sanchez of the Pirates. I wouldn't be surprised if he is dealt sometime today.
UPDATE: As expected, Freddy Sanchez has been traded to the San Francisco Giants. In return, the Pirates will receive pitcher Tim Alderson.
