Truth and Trade Rumor Buzz July 27th
Ken Rosenthal tweets that The white Sox are in serious talks on Edwin Jackson and Teahen with the Blue Jays for Frasor and prospect. Danks, Floyd are also on market.
"Of all the teams interested in Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez -- and there are a lot -- the Yankees have the best chance of actually landing him, according to major-league sources.
It's harder to know whether the two teams will actually be able to complete a deal, because the Rockies continue to place a high price on Jimenez, and the Yankees continue to be protective of their prospects. Any Jimenez deal would almost certainly need to include one of the Yankees' top catching prospects (either Jesus Montero or Austin Romine), as well as some combination of the top pitching prospects (Manuel Banuelos, Dellin Betances and Ivan Nova)."
Washington, San Francisco, Cleveland, Atlanta and Pittsburgh have been mentioned as possible destinations for Upton.
"There are so many rumors, it's to the point now where they don't matter, because everything is speculation," Upton said.
