Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports has been tweeting up a storm today…
- The Giants are among the most active teams on the trade market; Morosi says they're seeking bullpen help and maybe a bat. Nine relievers are known to have cleared waivers, while others such as Chad Qualls, Jamey Wright, Matt Capps, Todd Coffey, Mike MacDougal, Octavio Dotel, and Joe Nathan could be available in my estimation. More speculation from me: position player targets could include Jose Molina, Ryan Doumit, Melky Cabrera, Marlon Byrd, and Angel Pagan.
- The Braves seek bench help in advance of tomorrow's waiver trade deadline. They signed Wes Helms a few weeks ago.
- There's currently no momentum toward a trade between the Cardinals and Rangers for Lance Berkman, tweets Morosi. The Cardinals might require a return on par with the two draft picks they could receive if they offer arbitration to Berkman and he turns it down to sign elsewhere. Berkman cleared waivers, reported Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Friday.
