Carlos Beltran Traded to Texas Rangers

Neither is anxious about being the full-time closer.

Chris Buescher benefited from some bad weather to win the Sprint Cup race at Pocono for his first victory in NASCAR's top series. Yan Gomes is out with a dislocated shoulder.

But, it's the Indians rotation - Corey Kluber, Salazar, Carlos Carrasco, Josh Tomlin and Trevor Bauer - that makes them unsafe.

The AL West-leading Rangers made two major moves. Beltran provides a short term replacement for both Shin-Soo Choo who has been on and off the DL in right field and Prince Fielder as the DH who had season ending surgery.

The Royals traded him to Houston in advance of his free agency in June 2004 and seven years later, the Mets dealt him to the Giants for Zach Wheeler. The Astros lost to the Cardinals.

Lucroy is regarded as one of the best catchers in baseball, and rightfully so. The only remaining question is the rotation, which has been supplemented with the addition of Lucas Harrell, and will be bolstered with the returns of Colby Lewis and Derek Holland in time for the September homestretch.

On top of that, Cashman also got two players to be named later from the Pittsburgh Pirates for Ivan Nova. So the Rangers traded away three of their top five prospects for those two players. Cespedes will play left. Milwaukee used him as a potent bat in the middle of the order, but going to Texas he will be able to slot near the back of the order and provide key scoring in an already potent lineup.

Sox manager John Farrell said "yes and no" when asked if he were surprised the Yankees were deadline sellers. He has been an unstoppable closer this season only blowing one save out of 28 tries and earning a 2.22 ERA for the year. Green was selected in the seventh round and Swanson in the eighth round. Who bats fifth - Beltran or Lucroy? The Rangers definitely added some depth here and injury insurance, but late-season faith in 39-year olds is a cross-your-fingers move, not something you bank on. That doesn't work. Perhaps former Orioles pitcher Dave Johnson, my colleague on the Mid-Atlantic Sports Report, had the best idea: The Nationals should have traded for Tampa Bay's Steve Pearce. From now, no player can be dealt unless he goes unclaimed by everyone else. Those kind of averages don't last forever, but his big-picture ERA is still an impressive 2.22. Kimbrel now is recovering from a knee injury that required surgery on July 11. The bullpen also has Ziegler, Junichi Tazawa, Clay Buchholz, Robbie Ross Jr. and Tommy Layne.

Alabama college debate campus concealed carry after Texas law enacted
Last month, some higher education officials tried to block the law, saying it could have a chilling effect on academic freedom. Nearly all of the state's private universities and colleges have opted out of campus carry , as allowed under the law.

What if Carlos Beltran had ended up on the Red Sox? Price has location issues. I know the deadline was light on starters but there were options out there for a team that has a big need. The Cubs, though, have to get there first.

Los Angeles dealt from a stockpile of coveted pitching prospects, sending the A's three of their 10 best.

The Baltimore Orioles sought a solid starting pitcher and got only the struggling Wade Miley from Seattle.

Juan primarily uses three pitches - fastball, changeup and slider - but according to Hulett, he didn't throw his slider once on Sunday. He has a 1.69 earned-run average in his last four starts. "It just made a lot of sense for us".

Details about Toya Wright's brother, Rudy Johnson, gunned down in New Orleans
Hip-hop star Trina wrote: "I'm praying for @ ToyaWright her mom and her family during this disgusting tragedy". The brothers were discovered inside a vehicle , shortly after midnight on Saturday in the city's 7th Ward.

A year ago, the New York Mets were close to getting Jay Bruce from the Cincinnati Reds before acquiring Yoenis Cespedes from the Detroit Tigers. Now, they should release Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira. A-Rod is set to make $21 million next season, so that might be more hard. The next lefty the Yankees will see is Steven Matz on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium.
