Orioles acquire Steve Pearce


Pearce is going straight to the Majors.

Pirates want to trade pitching for hitting


"As the Pirates continue to hover around .500, they're telling other teams they're likely to approach this trading deadline much the way they approached last year's deadline -- and look to add, not sell, if they think they have a chance to finally end their painful streak of 19 straight losing seasons. They've sent signals they're likely to trade arms for bats, especially hitters they can control beyond this year. But what potential shoppers wonder is whether they'll be willing to move enough quality to make a significant deal. The Pirates are hinting they're inclined to keep James McDonald and A.J. Burnett, and probably even Erik Bedard, if they have a shot to win. That means they'll be shopping guys like Charlie Morton, Kevin Correia, Jeff Karstens and longtime prospect Rudy Owens (2.30, with a 0.93 WHIP in Triple-A). But it will be tough to add an impact bat with that group."

Could Pirates trade for Yunel Escobar?


"As I wrote Tuesday, the Blue Jays will be fascinating to follow as the July trade deadline approaches. In the near term, keep an eye on shortstop Yunel Escobar. Once prospect Adeiny Hechavarria arrives in the majors — which could happen any day now — the Blue Jays will have the flexibility to move Escobar for pitching. The A’s, Mariners and Pirates are possible trade partners, because they have pitching depth and a lack of production at shortstop."

The Nationals are actively seeking a veteran relief pitcher

‪Angels‬ have no real interest in Nate McLouth


Doug Slaten has June 1 opt-out date


Doug Slaten, LHP, Pirates. The Pirates, leading the NL in bullpen ERA, might not need Slaten, but some other team almost certainly would want him. Slaten, the closer at Triple A Indianapolis, has a 0.40 ERA and 0.806 WHIP and has yet to allow an extra-base hit in 22 1/3 innings.
