Joel Sherman of the New York Post says Troy Glaus and his $11.25MM salary would likely clear waivers in August, so the Cards could trade him then if he isn't fully healthy within the next three days. Glaus currently profiles as a Type A free agent, but Sherman doubts the Cards will offer him arbitration after the season even if they keep him. Here are more of Sherman's rumors:
- An AL official believes the Red Sox "will step up" for Adrian Gonzalez and tempt the Padres with their many prospects.
- The D'Backs may keep Chad Qualls around for next season, but they're still receiving calls about him.
- The Yankees showed interest earlier in the season, but are no longer calling the D'Backs about Qualls.
