Sit tight.  Since the White Sox REALLY want Puig apparently and the Reddick deal MAY be a way to move Puig...for what?  Dunno.

And the Marlins are sending Colin Rea back to San Diego because he was broken when they bought him.

Not so fast.  Possibly Brandon Nimmo cannot pass his physical.

Just saw Ken Rosenthal's tweet about that and had a good laugh. You can't make this shit up.

And Rosenthal reports the Marlins are getting Luis Castillo back from San Diego for the broken elbow of Colin Rea.

It's not Nimmo that's hurt, it's one of the other unnamed minor leaguers. Weird.

This deadline sucks.

Yeah.  Was just posting that.

The Mets are attempting to re-work the deal but now the Reds might need to pick up the phones from some other team.

The Giants get Will Smith.  No, not the Fresh Prince.

Feh.  God this is a terrible deadline day.

Only us would have a major deal fall apart over a fringe prospect being hurt.

The Indians get Brandon Guyer from the Rays for Nathan Lukes.

The Rangers get Carlos Beltran from the Yankess for Dillon Tate.  (This is agreed on, not 100% final yet)

Not seeing the Puig deal yet.

And RUMORZ!!!! are the Beltran deal would allow the Rangers to then move Gallo to Milwaukee for Lucroy.

That would be an awful deal for the Rangers, wouldn't it?

Which one - the Beltran deal or the rumored Lucroy deal?

Neither is great for the Rangers.  If they can get Lucroy to extend his contract it's not as terrible given the Rangers clearly do not want to play Gallo, I guess.

Dillon Tate has been awful in the Rangers farm system.  They were terrified to have him pitch at home for Spokane last year for some reason and barely had him throw on the road (all of 9 innings last year). He was hurt earlier this year and has been lit up ever since returning for Hickory.

Gallo never makes contact. Even in this free-swinging era, he strikes out A TON.

Yeah, all reports are that his velocity is way down (injured?) and has been lit up this year.  But he's a top 10 pick, so teams will always think they can straighten those out, I guess.
