- MLB Trade Rumors’s latest on Sonny Gray...

- The Nationals are reportedly not in on Sonny...
Correction: #Nationals NOT pursuing a starter at level of Gray or Darvish, sources say. Might pursue another reliever, waiting on Kelley.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 27, 2017
I misinterpreted information that I received last night and that is why I reported Nationals were on Gray. Apologize for mistaken report.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 27, 2017
- AN and Lookout Landing collaborated on a mock trade negotiation. Do the Mariners have enough to acquire Sonny?
- The bullpen blows it; A’s lose 3-2.
- A fun piece from ESPN on how a baseball fan from 1987 dropped into 2017 would see today’s game...
Best of Twitter:
- The Nationals reportedly only expect Strasburg to miss one start. If this changes, perhaps they come back in on Sonny...if they were ever in on Sonny.
Nationals place RHP Stephen Strasburg on 10-day DL (retroactive to July 24) with right elbow nerve impingement. https://t.co/zwW4viAbWN— MLBRosterMoves (@MLBRosterMoves) July 27, 2017
- Adrian Beltre was told to stand in the on-deck circle. He got creative...and tossed.
