Surely some of these guys are going to be moved today... right?

With just 4 hours remaining until the trade deadline, the Mariners have a number of guys who could be switching uniforms for a playoff run.

Mike Leake

Suitors: Rangers, Brewers, Angels, Padres, Braves

Frankly, Mike Leake could end up in a number of places. His ability to eat innings for a playoff contender could be valuable. He’s also been better than a number of guys already moved this season. See: Jordan Lyles, Homer Bailey.

It’ll essentially come down to whether Seattle is willing to eat enough money to make it worthwhile for someone to pick him up. That, obviously, would require Seattle receive a worthy of eating the $16-$18 million required to make him valuable to another team.

It would appear the Rangers may be a serious suitor just so long as they move Mike Minor for future assets.

At this time, the Rangers and Brewers appear to be the most serious about acquiring Leake. We still think Leake makes a ton of sense for the Padres.

Roenis Elias

Suitors: Braves, Mets, Red Sox, Cubs, Twins, Dodgers, Padres, Astros

Again, there’s a number of teams that could use a reliable LHP out of the pen. Elias is controllable for next year as well, lifting his allure for teams.

There hasn’t been too much speculated upon as far as Elias goes in recent days, but then again he’s not the kind of name that’s going to catch a lot of headlines prior to a deal.

Domingo Santana

Suitors: Rays, Giants, Rockies, Braves

The Cleveland Indians were absolutely the frontrunner to acquire Santana entering Tuesday, but after acquiring Franmail Reyes and Yasiel Puig in a 3-team deal moving Trevor Bauer, it’s highly unlikely they’re still interested.

The Rays have reportedly cooled on Santana with his current elbow ailment. The Giants and Rockies have never formally been attached to his name either.

The Braves are reportedly searching for outfield help with the injury to Nick Markakis, though there’s a plethora of outfield names being tossed around at this point, none of which are named Domingo Santana.

Chances are he stays put.

Anthony Bass

Suitors: Braves, Yankees, Mets, Red Sox, Cubs, Twins, Dodgers, Padres, Astros

This is a total crapshoot as Anthony Bass, if moved, could end up just about anywhere. His stuff has taken a giant uptick in 2019 and has quietly been one of the better relief options Seattle has to offer.

Today’s trade deadline ends at 1 p.m.

We’ll have full write-ups on any players moved, and of course, any players acquired in return.
