MLB Talk

• After many weeks of rumors and speculation the Manny Machado domino has fallen as the Orioles traded the 26 year old superstar to the Dodgers for a 5 player prospect package highlighted by outfielder Yusniel Diaz. Closer Zach Britton and second baseman Jonathan Schoop are also now rumored to be on the move before the end of the month as the Orioles look to strip and rebuild their young talent pool.

• Other notable trades also have occurred this week. The Padres sent closer Brad Hand and fellow reliever Adam Cimber to Cleveland for catching prospect Francisco Mejia. Hand was a mediocre starter who has reinvented himself as a lethal weapon from the bullpen in the past season and a half while Cimber has also broken out as a useful late game arm this year. Mejia’s bat has always been highly touted but he has no clear spot to break into the majors with Cleveland. With Hand and Cimber both controllable for the next several season (2020 and 2023 respectively), the Indians have also solidified their bullpen in the event that they lose Cody Allen and Andrew Miller this coming off-season.

• Meanwhile the Mets also dealt their closer, Jeurys Familia, this week to the Oakland Athletics for a pair of minor leaguers and approximately $1 million in international bonus money. Pairing Familia with breakout pitchers Blake Treinen, Lou Trivino, and others should give the Athletics an enviable level of bullpen depth.
