Jamie Sabau/Getty ImagesCincinnati Reds pitcher Matt Harvey has already been traded once this season and could be on the move again given the latest report.According to Robert Murray of The Athletic Aaron Sanchez Jersey , an unknown team claimed Harvey on revocable waivers, which opens up the possibility Cincinnati could trade him even though the non-waiver trade deadline has passed.Andrew Simon of MLB.com provided a rundown of what can happen after a player is claimed on waivers:"Once a player is claimed, his team faces three options. It can pull the player back and keep him, negotiate a trade with the claiming team or let the player go. In the last scenario, the claiming team takes full responsibility for the player's remaining salary. If the two sides decide to work out a trade Kevin Pillar Jersey , they have two days to do so."The New York Mets traded Harvey to the Reds in May in exchange for catcher Devin Mesoraco after the right-handed pitcher posted an ugly 7.00 ERA in eight appearances in New York this season.However, he has shown improvement for the Reds and has a 4.28 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 17 starts, making him a more valuable trade piece. It makes sense for Cincinnati to move him since it is in last place and could acquire a young asset to bolster its rebuild in a deal before Harvey potentially leaves in free agency this offseason.While there was a time when Harvey was one of the best pitchers in baseball, he posted a 4.86 ERA in 2016 and 6.70 ERA in 2017 before this up-and-down year. The Mets also shut him down in 2016 to undergo surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome.Still, he is just 29 years old http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-russell-martin-jersey , was a 2013 All-Star and won the 2015 National League Comeback Player of the Year Award while helping lead the Mets to the World Series. He is a low-risk option for potential contenders at this point and likely wouldn't command a significant return package in a trade.Harvey has October experience and has proved himself in the past, and at least one unknown team took a step toward landing him for the stretch run. CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs will have different hitting and pitching coaches for the second straight season after they announced Jim Hickey’s departure Tuesday.Hickey is leaving the organization after one season as pitching coach because of personal reasons, according to the team. Hitting coach Chili Davis was fired last month after one season and replaced by Anthony Iapoce.With Hickey’s help, Chicago ranked third in the majors this year with a 3.65 team ERA. The Cubs went 95-68 and lost to Colorado in the NL wild-card game.“We thank Jim for his season with the Cubs and his positive impact on our pitchers,” president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said in a statement. “Jim has our full support and we all wish him well.”Chicago’s uncertain situation with its coaching staff could affect its search for a replacement for the respected Hickey. Manager Joe Maddon is entering the final year of his contract Josh Donaldson Jersey , and Epstein has said the club will not be offering an extension before the start of the 2019 season.Hickey was hired a year ago to replace Chris Bosio. Hickey also has been a pitching coach with Houston and Tampa Bay.Also Tuesday, the Cubs claimed left-hander Ian Clarkin off waivers from the crosstown White Sox and traded infielder Jason Vosler to the San Diego Padres for right-hander Rowan Wick.The 23-year-old Clarkin was selected by the New York Yankees in the first round of the 2013 draft. He was traded to the White Sox in the July 2017 deal that sent Todd Frazier and David Robertson to New York.Wick, who turned 26 on Nov. 9, made his major league debut in August. He went 0-1 with a 6.48 ERA in 10 relief appearances with San Diego.The Cubs also said outfielder Johnny Field and lefty Jerry Vasto cleared waivers and were assigned to Triple-A Iowa. Infielder Jack Reinheimer was claimed off waivers by Texas after he was claimed off waivers by Chicago on Nov. 2.
