Will they stay or will they go now?

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Oakland Athletics Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Trade Rumors:

  • Yu Darvish appears to be more available by the day, potentially taking another chunk out of the Sonny Gray market. The Cubs are reported to be interested in Darvish as a rental option.
  • MLB Trade Rumors ranks Gray first on their most recent list of Top 60 Trade Deadline Candidates. Jed Lowrie and Yonder Alonso also make the top 10.
  • One more Gray story: at 10:28 AM yesterday, Jon Morosi reported that talks between the Astros and A’s over Gray were “heating up.” At 6:25 PM, Jon Heyman reported it wasn’t clear that the Astros and A’s were even in serious talks. Make of that what you will.
  • The Yankees are still considering adding a first baseman before the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline.

Best of Twitter:

  • The A’s haven’t discussed an extension with Yonder Alonso’s agent.
  • Ryon Healy will be on MLB Network’s “MLB Central” today at 8 AM PDT.
