NL Central Notes: Cardinals, Mahle, Drury, Quintana, Blue Jays, Sosa

The basics“Searching to start promoting has taken them within their department, like MLB Network’s John Morrosi (Twitter link) reports that St.Louis FC is one of many interested clubs reds Valid Tyler Mahley. Since the cards look at all the help options in turn, it only makes sense that they at least log access to Mahle’s services.

The Phillies, Twins and Mets are among the clubs linked to Mahle since the start of the season, while the Rangers have also reportedly shown interest during an off-season period. with Luis Castillo Off the board already, it’s fair to guess that most teams in need have spoken to the Reds about Mahley, and on paper the Cardinal has the kind of young talent the Reds will surely demand. However, it is possible that Cincinnati will want to charge a higher price to transfer Mahley to a division rival – as Morosi points out, the Reds and the Cardinals have not completed a player-for-player deal since 1997, so that comes as a surprise to some. Level if Mahle finished in St. Louis.

More notes from around NL Central…

  • Just because Castillo was traded doesn’t mean that reds They’re necessarily more likely to stick with Mahle, because CBS Sports’ RJ Anderson hears that Mahle and Brandon Drury Both are expected to be on new teams after the deadline. Drury is a free agent after the season and thus represents a clear trading bracket, although Mahle remains in control of the team until 2023. But, it now appears that Cincinnati will dive into something close to a full rebuild, a process that has already started again in the winter when They moved on to many other veteran talents.
  • The blue jays in the mix for pirates beginning Jose Quintana, according to Bob Nightingale of USA Today, along with previously reported suitors such as the Yankees and White Sox. The veteran left-back is having a season to bounce back after struggling in 2019-21, and Quintana could help bolster Toronto’s inconsistent rotation. Pirates GM Ben Cherington previously worked in the Jays front office, so familiarity with AL East’s east side prospects could help the Blue Jays bid, even though the two sides haven’t completed a player-for-player deal on the two-plus years since Cherington has gone to Pittsburgh.
  • The Yankees One of the other teams was interested Edmundo Sosa Before basics Derek Gould wrote of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Sosa dealt with the Feliz. Sosa would have made an interesting addition to the Yankees Stadium, and it’s also possible that Sosa might have made his way into a timeshare with Ischia Keener Valiva in shortstop.
