The MLB Trade Deadline is right around the corner which means we’re going to start hearing more and more about players who could be moved before the end of the month.
One of the most talked about names is San Diego Padres closer Huston Street, who has been the subject of more than a few trade rumors as of late.
According to CBSports.com’s Jon Heyman, the Padres are likely to move Huston Street before the deadline a
The Pirates are said to be among other teams to check in on Street, with the Orioles and Giants mentioned in a speculative sense as possibilities. Both those teams seem more focused on starting pitchers, however. The Tigers have not indicated an interest in acquiring a new closer and seem content with veteran Joe Nathan at the moment.
The Giants and Orioles don’t seem to be as serious of suitors that the Pirates may be but the Los Angeles Angels are a team that can’t be slept on this month when it comes to a Street trade.
Detroit not looking for anyone outside Joe Nathan seems like it might be a mistake but if they’re content riding out their season on the inconsistent arm of a guy who has made a career out of getting paid to blow saves, then that’s a decision only Detroit can make.
