prospectinsider.com — The Oakland Athletics have traded left-hander Scott Kazmir, setup man Tyler clippard and utility master Ben Zobrist to contending clubs in the last five days. All three players are headed for free agency. The Cleveland Indians moved platoon outfielder David Murphy Tuesday. The Rays dealt outfielder David DeJesus Tuesday, too.

Most asked about Mariners

prospectinsider.com — With the trade deadline approaching - 1 PM PT Friday - so many conversations, ideas, negotiations and offers will occur that our collective heads will spin. One piece of interesting data is the set of names being discussed the most. For the Seattle Mariners, this means two different sets of names.

Rumor Analysis: July 25, 2015

prospectinsider.com — Every day through July 31, and even deep into August to a lesser extent, there will be multiple reports regarding clubs having trade discussions with other clubs, about certain players, and there always are contract details, payrolls and many roster scenarios to consider.

Rumor Analysis: Kazmir deal impacts Iwakuma

prospectinsider.com — If Hisashi Iwakuma goes out in five days and pitches well again, the Seattle Mariners absolutely will have the opportunity to trade the right-hander to a contender, and the package Oakland received in exchange for Scott Kazmir could serve as a baseline for any deal Seattle makes involving the 34-year-old.

The Mariners’ worse-case scenario

prospectinsider.com — When pitchers and catchers reported to spring training in preparation for the 2015 Major League Baseball season, there was buzz. There was hope.

@Streaker4 No idea. But it;d have to come down a lot for me. It's ONE year of a player.

Jul 30, 2015

@rcjhseahawk No. I'd go get two or three OFs and trade him for best offer no matter what it was.

Jul 30, 2015

@Streaker4 Maybe Walker-Miller. Terrible deal for one year of Gomez.

Jul 30, 2015

@SorensSam Maybe Walker-Miller. I'd pass. It's a year of Gomez. The final 2 months of 2015 mean ZERO. Not in it.
