MLB trade deadline open thread and rumor round-up

The Tigers aren’t doing anything, but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about the other trades going down around baseball today.

MLB: Washington Nationals at Miami Marlins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

We are eight hours away from the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline (as of 8:00 a.m. ET), and the excitement might only be beginning. A flurry of trades went down on Monday evening, including one involving our old friends Ian Kinsler and Dave Dombrowski, and Tuesday might give us even more action. The Washington Nationals have reportedly put Bryce Harper on the trade block, and I have a hunch that Tampa’s Chris Archer might also be on the move.

Since our Detroit Tigers seem to be taking a back seat to all of this movement — we haven’t heard a peep about Mike Fiers, Francisco Liriano, or even Michael Fulmer — let’s sit back and enjoy the madness. Feel free to stop in before or during your work day and chat about all the rumors, trades, and ramifications of the deals going down on what promises to be one of the more hectic trade deadlines in recent memory.

We’ll try to update this thread throughout the day with the trades and rumors that have been reported.
