Arizona Diamondbacks at the Trade Deadline

A little less than three hours to go... Will anything happen?

We’re down to the last couple of hours now, and despite the blockbuster trade of Trevor Bauer and Yasiel Puig yesterday, it still seems considerably quieter than the average trade deadline. That’s despite this one being a “hard” deadline, unlike previous years. There, players could still be dealt after the July 31st point, providing they had gone through waivers. This year, for the first time, there’s no such clause. That’s significant, because teams need to decide now - with a third of the season still left to play - whether or not to be buyers or sellers. Especially in the National League, where 60% of the teams are within three games of a post-season spot, that’s a tough call.

There has been no action with regard to any trades involving Diamondbacks to this point, but here’s a quick round-up of the latest rumblings from around the league. The Yankees seem to be slightly cooler on the idea of getting Robbie Ray, according to Andy Martino:

However, other beg to differ, and there are also reports that the Astros are now in the market for the left-hander.

As well as Ray, Andrew Chafin’s name is another which is coming up in some recent rumors.
