Here's a look at the latest trade rumblings from Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com..
- We know that the Rangers have interest in Alex Rios, but the Royals also like the White Sox outfielder, Knobler writes. The Royals have been talked about more as sellers and we know that they're willing to discuss Ervin Santana, but KC has also been looking to add under-control players who could fill their needs in right field or at second base. It's not clear how much the division rivals have talked, however.
- The Braves need their hitting to improve, but they're scouring the market for bullpen help, writes Knobler. The main focus has been on finding a left-handed reliever, but they've also looked at right-handed bullpen help and even at starting pitchers. Left-handers like the Brewers' Mike Gonzalez and James Russell of the Cubs would make sense for them. Marlins lefty Mike Dunn has also been mentioned by some teams, but the Braves have been told he won't be traded.
- In addition to Rios, the Rangers also have their eye on the Mets' Marlon Byrd (Twitter link). Last week it was said that the Mets need to be "overwhelmed" to trade Byrd.
