Good morning, I hope everyone is ready for a heavy dose of trade rumours today.
The day has started with a series of Yovani Gallardo rumours:
Yovani Gallardo told Rangers?src=hash">#Rangers he would waive limited no-trade protection and accept deal to Toronto. Rangers could still keep him, though.— Jeff Wilson (@JeffWilson_FWST) July 30, 2015
Blue Jays asked about Gallardo but nothing really came of it....Rangers quiet this morning. Medical records being checked on Hamels trade— TR Sullivan (@Sullivan_Ranger) July 30, 2015
I still think #Rangers will move Gallardo. But there's enough interest for Jon Daniels to take a shot and aim high.— Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) July 30, 2015
Though Gallardo does have a 3.19 ERA, he also has a career high 4.20 xFIP. Not many fly balls have left the park when Yovani pitches this season, so I'd expect his ERA to regress significantly. He is scheduled to pitch today against the Yankees, so it would be nice if the Rangers could hold off for one more day. Gallardo is a free agent after this season.
Meanwhile, Jon Heyman tells us that Tyson Ross is drawing "intense interest" from many teams, including the Blue Jays:

Finally, Andrew Stoeten tweets that he was told "Hey, might be something big happening".
Not that I'd say so if I did, but I literally know nothing. Just was told "hey, might be something big happening," basically. Take that FWIW— Andrew Stoeten (@AndrewStoeten) July 30, 2015
Maybe it is this?
