    Toronto Blue Jays RHP Tyler Chatwood was designated for assignment Friday, July 30.

    Josh Harrison Jul 30 3:10pm ET

    The Washington Nationals have a deal in place to trade catcher Yan Gomes and infielder Josh Harrison to the Oakland Athletics, according to Jesse Dougherty of the Washington Post. Gomes had earlier been linked to Toronto, but now he'll head to Oakland where he'll figure to split time behind the plate with Sean Murphy. Gomes is slashing .271/.323/.454 with nine homers, 35 RBI and 30 runs scored this year, while Harrison is slashing .294/.366/.434 with six homers, five steals, 38 RBI and 39 runs scored. Both Gomes and Harrison figure to provide Oakland a boost off the bench, and should get enough starts to make them solid contributors in deeper formats.

    Trevor Williams Jul 30 3:10pm ET

    Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Trevor Williams will join shortstop Javier Baez in a trade with the New York Mets. Williams struggled in his time with the Cubs this season, but gives the Mets an extra arm at the end of the rotation and he can also be used as a long reliever. Williams has appeared in 13 games this season with 12 starts and is 4-2 with a 5.06 ERA. Williams can remain on the waiver wire in all formats for now. With Williams sent packing, the Cubs are likely to promote one of Justin Steele or Keegan Thompson to replace him in the rotation. Both Thompson and Steele have performed well out of the bullpen this season and are worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues.

    Ian Kennedy Jul 30 3:10pm ET

    The Texas Rangers have a deal in place to trade starting pitcher Kyle Gibson and relief pitcher Ian Kennedy to the Philadelphia Phillies, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network. This provides a big boost to the Phillies pitching staff, as Gibson has been having a great season so far while Kennedy has been a solid closer for Texas. Over 19 starts, Gibson is 6-3 with a 2.87 ERA and 1.177 WHIP, while Kennedy has 16 saves, a 2.51 ERA and 1.052 WHIP over 32 appearances. With Kennedy on the move, Spencer Patton figures to be next in line for the closer's job in Texas, and managers should make sure to scoop him up off the waiver wire.

    Javier Baez Jul 30 3:00pm ET

    The Chicago Cubs have a deal in place to trade shortstop Javier Baez to the New York Mets pending a review of medical records, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB Network. In the short term Baez will figure to take over at shortstop while Lindor remains out with a Grade 2 oblique strain that will keep him sidelined until mid-to-late August. Over 91 games this year, Baez is slashing .248/.292/.484 with 22 homers, 13 steals, 65 RBI and 48 runs scored, and he should provide a solid boost to the Mets lineup.

    Javier Baez Jul 30 2:50pm ET

    The New York Mets are in discussions with the Chicago Cubs to potentially acquire shortstop Javier Baez, according to Joel Sherman of MLB Network. Sherman adds that the Mets may also be looking into acquiring a pitcher as well in the deal. The Mets had been looking at Rockies shortstop Trevor Story, but Baez may prove to be a more attainable target for New York to acquire. Over 91 games this year, Baez is slashing .248/.292/.484 with 22 homers, 13 steals, 65 RBI and 48 runs scored, and he could provide a solid boost to the Mets lineup. Keep an eye out for further updates as we approach the final hour before the deadline.

    Craig Kimbrel Jul 30 2:30pm ET

    Chicago Cubs relief pitcher Craig Kimbrel has been traded to the Chicago White Sox, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN. There is currently no word yet on what the return for the Cubs will be. Kimbrel has been one of the best closers in baseball for some time, and over 39 appearances this year, he is 2-3 with a 0.49 ERA, 0.709 WHIP and 46.7 percent strikeout rate over 36 2/3 innings of work. This will make things interesting for the White Sox, as Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that Kimbrel and current closer Liam Hendriks are now expected to share closing duties going forward which will be somewhat of a hit in value to both Hendriks and Kimbrel.

    Michael Fulmer Jul 30 2:20pm ET

    The Detroit Tigers have had discussions with several teams about potentially trading relief pitcher Michael Fulmer, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network. Fulmer split closing duties earlier this year with Gregory Soto, and over 27 games this season he is 4-4 with a 3.86 ERA, 1.262 WHIP and 25.6 percent strikeout rate over 42 innings of work. He can be a solid option in SV/HLD formats depending on where he lands, if he is traded.

    Yan Gomes Jul 30 2:20pm ET

    The Toronto Blue Jays are in discussions with the Washington Nationals to potentially acquire catcher Yan Gomes, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network. Gomes was just reinstated from the injured list on Thursday, and over 63 games this year he is slashing .271/.323/.454 with nine homers, 35 RBI and 30 runs scored. The Blue Jays have dealt with several injuries at the catcher position this season, and Gomes would provide a nice boost to Toronto's lineup while also gaining a boost in fantasy value by hitting in a better lineup. The Blue Jays acquired Jose Berrios earlier on Friday, and this could be another big deadline acquisition for Toronto if the deal comes to fruition.

    Freddy Peralta Jul 30 2:10pm ET

    Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Freddy Peralta (8-3) picked up the win Thursday after blanking the Pirates across six efficient innings. He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out five. Peralta continued his incredible season by allowing two or fewer hits for the 13th time. The 25-year-old displayed strong command to get the job done while needing only 68 pitches to complete six innings during the blowout victory. Peralta will bring a stellar 2.17 ERA and 0.87 WHIP into a projected rematch against Pittsburgh on Wednesday. He's a must-start, even though it appears as if the Brewers are going to be extra cautious with his innings and pitch count moving foward.

    Raisel Iglesias Jul 30 2:10pm ET

    The Los Angeles Angels have made relief pitcher Raisel Iglesias available for a trade, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network. Iglesias now joins what is a hot trade market for relief pitchers, after going 7-4 with 21 saves, a 3.23 ERA, 0.908 WHIP and 38.6 percent strikeout rate over 47 1/3 innings of work this season. He'll be a solid boost to any contender's bullpen, and is set to be a free agent after 2022, which could mean the Angels get a good return for him. Managers should keep an eye out for further updates as we hit the final stretch before the deadline.

    Manny Pina Jul 30 2:10pm ET

    Milwaukee Brewers catcher Manny Pina went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI during Thursday's win over the Pirates. Pina took Chris Stratton deep with a 396-foot shot in the sixth inning and swatted his second of the night in the eighth. He now has seven long balls this season while recording his first hits since his last homer on July 7 against the Mets. Although Pina's lack of production is partly due to limited playing time as the team's backup catcher, a .156/.273/.367 slash line isn't doing him any favors.

    Byron Buxton Jul 30 2:10pm ET

    The Philadelphia Phillies are reportedly one of six or seven teams "checking in on" Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton according to a tweet from MLB Network's Jon Heyman. Buxton is still on the injured list due to a fractured left hand but could make a serious impact down the stretch for fantasy managers when he returns. The outfielder was having a breakout season before landing on the injured list, hitting .369 with a .409 on-base percentage, 10 home runs, and five stolen bases in 110 plate appearances. A trade to a better lineup would only improve things from a fantasy upside standpoint.

    Daniel Norris Jul 30 2:03pm ET

    The Milwaukee Brewers will acquire Detroit Tigers LHP Daniel Norris in exchange for RHP Reese Olson, according to sources Friday, July 30.
