Joseph Garnett Jr./Getty ImagesSunday was a relatively quiet day on the MLB trade front Chuck Klein Jersey , with the most notable move being the Atlanta Braves' acquisition of Baltimore Orioles reliever Brad Brach.However, the non-waiver trade deadline of 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, July 31 looms large, so chances are there will be a ton of movement over the next couple days.Here's a look at the latest rumors on three notable names.Chris ArcherThe biggest name left on the trading block may be Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Chris Archer, who has been the subject of numerous trade rumors recently.Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports has the latest:Jon Heyman JonHeymanrays had two scouts watching top yankees lip prospect justus sheffield yesterday, adding intrigue to chris archer rumors (as Joelsherman1 mentioned). another scout said: quot;was just ok ... fighting fastball command.quot; padres still seen as current favorites for archer -- if he goesMarc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Timesdiscussed what a possible deal for Archer could look like: "With the Rays advancing Saturday to weighing offers, the question ultimately will be whether a team is willing to give up enough now, with a catcher and power-hitting outfielder a good start to a package, to get the Rays to say yes rather than wait for the offseason, or longer, to deal him."Archer has been up and down in 2018. Only one of his first six outings was a quality start, but he bounced back in May and held the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Oakland Athletics scoreless in 12-plus combined frames. An abdominal strain kept him out for a month, but he returned healthy prior to the All-Star break.After allowing three earned runs in 3.1 innings against the Detroit Tigers in his first appearance back, Archer has a 3.86 ERA in three starts, including 23 strikeouts in 16.1 innings.At his best, Archer is a strikeout machine who can give a team seven-plus strong innings. Given that he's likely the best starting pitcher left on the trading block, he should return a sizable haul for Tampa Bay. Adam JonesThe Baltimore Orioles are clear sellers at this year's deadline, as they have already dealt the aforementioned Brach, shortstop Manny Machado and southpaw reliever Zach Britton.A few other names have been in the mix, including center fielder Adam Jones, a five-time All-Star who has been a mainstay in the Baltimore outfield for a decade.However , it doesn't look like Jones is going anywhere for now,per Heyman:Jon Heyman JonHeymanthere was a chance to go to Philly, but Adam Jones has decided to stay in Baltimore (at least for now) due to reasons of family, friends, fans and his charity. cant blame him for that. tough call, he appreciates the interest. possibility to revisit after the deadline also.Of course, the reasons for Jones wanting to stay are certainly legitimate, especially given that he's established roots in Baltimore since 2008. If he ever happens to change his mind, a playoff-contending team would be getting a solid outfielder who could plug a gap in a team's lineup. For the season, the 32-year-old Jones is hitting .285 alongside 11 home runs and 44 RBI.He's also in the midst of a hot streak at the moment, per Baseball-Reference, as Jones has 13 hits in his last 32 at-bats and earned a 1.020 OPS during that span.Jones is a free agent after this season, and given the team's rebuilding direction, it's unlikely that he'll be an Oriole in 2019. Comments from general manager Dan Duquette didn't sound promising: "(Jones') contract is up. I don鈥檛 know whether Adam will be here or not, but the club is going in the direction of younger ballplayers. I can tell you that."Ultimately, when Jones leaves town, chances are it will be via free agency in the offseason.Keone KelaTexas Rangers closer Keone Kela has saved 24 games in 25 appearances. He's just 25 years old and has to deal with the obstacle of pitching in Globe Life Park in Arlington, which is one of the most notorious hitter parks in the league, half the time.In other words, he's a hot commodity as the trade deadline nears, and naturally Darren Daulton Jersey , a few contending teams are interested.Per Ken Gurnick of, the Los Angeles Dodgers are in the mix:Ken Gurnick kengurnickPlease add Rangers closer Keone Kela to the seemingly endless list of players the Dodgers are looking at before Tuesdays trade deadline.Per Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports and The Athletic, and Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Atlanta Braves are also involved:Ken Rosenthal Ken_RosenthalHearing same. Per sources, the interest is in potentially both Kela and Diekman. #Braves willing to move Gohara. Z8e9dpMo3XThe Braves have a much bigger need for Kela than the Dodgers. Closer Aroldys Vizcaino is on the disabled list, and manager Brian Snitker said on July 23 that the 27-year-old was still two to three weeks away from throwing. That means Vizcaino likely won't start doing so until the second or even third week of August.As is, the team's bullpen has not fared particularly well this year, as it is currently ranked 20th in team ERA. The addition of Brach could certainly help, although the team may need more reinforcements, especially if Vizcaino is out until September. As it stands, a Braves-Rangers deal involving Kela seems like a real possibility. ATLANTA (AP) — Jameson Taillon extended the Atlanta Braves‘ home struggles, leaving the NL East tight entering the final month of the season.Gregory Polanco’s eighth-inning single drove in Adam Frazier with the tiebreaking run, Taillon allowed only two runs and the Pittsburgh Pirates recovered after blowing a two-run lead to beat the Braves 3-2 on Friday night.The first-place Braves, who have lost five of their last seven, saw their NL East lead shrink to two games over Philadelphia entering September.“There are definitely some difficult and intense situations, but I think our mindset is to continue to have fun,” third baseman Johan Camargo said through a translator. Ronald Acuna Jr. and Camargo and hit home runs in the sixth and seventh innings, respectively, for a 2-2 tie before the Pirates reclaimed the lead in the eighth.The Braves have lost seven of their last eight home games.Manager Brian Snitker said his young players, including 20-year-old Acuna, 21-year-old Ozzie Albies and 24-year-old Camargo , will gain valuable experience in the final month.“It’s going to be interesting. It’s going to be a great experience for them,” Snitker said. “You can’t simulate that anywhere.”Taillon (11-9) gave up two runs on five hits in seven innings.“Tonight was one of those nights that was really fun,” Taillon said, adding he had a good chemistry with catchers Elias Diaz and Francisco Cervelli. “It seemed like everything they were putting down I already had gripped and already had in my mind and I was able to execute.”Felipe Vazquez pitched out of trouble in the ninth for his 29th save in 33 opportunities. Camargo hit a one-out single up the middle, past a diving Josh Harrison, and advanced to second on Kurt Suzuki’s single to right. Camargo was forced out at third on a fielder’s choice before Vazquez struck out Dansby Swanson to end the game.Frazier, pinch-hitting for Taillon, led off the eighth with a walk from Brad Brach (2-4) and moved to second when Albies bobbled Starling Marte’s grounder at second base for an error. Frazier scored the unearned run on Polanco’s single up the middle.Corey Dickerson led off the second with a double down the right-field line and scored on a single up the middle by Diaz. Anibal Sanchez ended the second with three straight strikeouts to begin a stretch of retiring 12 consecutive batters.Sanchez allowed two runs, one earned, on five hits in 5 1/3 innings.TRAINER’S ROOMPirates: Diaz left the game in the seventh with a sore right hamstring. He was limping after running to first on his groundout to shortstop.Braves: RHP Peter Moylan aggravated his right forearm strain, ending his rehab assignment and hopes of returning this season. He was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. … RHP Arodys Vizcaino (right shoulder inflammation) threw live batting practice and is ready to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday. … RHP Brandon McCarthy (knee) allowed two runs on four hits in two innings in his rehab outing with Gwinnett.CONSISTENT TAILLONTaillon became one of only three pitches in the majors with at least 17 consecutive starts allowing no more than three earned runs.BIG MONTHAcuna capped a productive August. The rookie led the NL with 39 hits and 25 runs and tied for the league lead with 11 homers, giving him 22. The Braves said Acuna is the first NL rookie over the last 110 seasons with at least 39 hits and 11 homers in a month.GREAT CATCHBraves center fielder Ender Inciarte made a leaping catch of a drive hit by David Freese to end the first inning. Watching the catch from the mound, Sanchez pumped his right fist in approval.REINFORCEMENTSSnitker said catcher Rene Rivera, obtained off waivers from the Angels on Wednesday, will be among four or five players promoted to the Atlanta roster on Saturday. Snitker said more players may join Atlanta after Gwinnett’s season ends on Monday.UP NEXTPirates: RHP Chris Archer (4-7, 4.72) has a 6.45 ERA in five starts with Pittsburgh since being acquired from Tampa Bay on July 31. He allowed one run in four innings in a 1-0 loss to the Braves on Aug. 20.Braves: RHP Kevin Gausman (9-9, 3.89) will face the Pirates for the second time since his trade to the Braves. Gausman threw eight scoreless innings, allowing four hits, in a 6-1 win at Pittsburgh on Aug. 21.
