Cubs acquire Justin Wilson and Alex Avila

It's unclear if the Tigers will trade other players before today's trade deadline.

Lynn Henning of the Detroit News reports that the trade is official. Additionally, the Tigers will receive either a player to be named later, or cash.

As the Cubs consummated the deal with the Tigers, the dominant Dodgers were reinforcing the need for Epstein's aggressiveness with a walk-off double by Kyle Farmer in his first major-league at-bat. He ranked as the Cubs' No. 29 prospect coming into the year, according to Baseball America.

The Cubs had no room for Candalerio - some guy named Kris Bryant blocked his path - and he certainly has some offensive tools, hitting.266/.361/.507 at Triple-A Iowa at age 23 (and had even better numbers there previous year in 300 at-bats).

Candelario had little future with the Cubs, though, with Kris Bryant entrenched at third base.

It should be noted that neither Candelario nor Paredes is considered a top-100 prospect in baseball. The World Series champions had been searching for a veteran to back up catcher Willson Contreras since they cut Miguel Montero a month ago, and Avila is having one of the best seasons of his career at the plate.

The Tigers have a 47-56 record and are 10 games out of first place in the AL Central.

Like the Tigers' July 18 trade that sent outfielder J.D. Martinez to the Arizona Diamondbacks for three infield prospects, reviews from analysts were mixed.

Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press first reported the details of the trade, and Jon Morosi of the MLB Network later reported the trade was complete after medical reviews. NY already has a replacement after acquiring Miami Marlins closer A.J. Ramos on Friday. Wade Davis remains the closer, but Maddon has a bevy of guys he employs in late-inning, high-leverage situations, including Carl Edwards Jr., Pedro Strop, Koji Uehara, Hector Rondon and lefty Brian Duensing. He took over the closer role after the team released Francisco Rodriguez earlier in the season, and he pitched well in that capacity picking up 13 saves along the way.

Wilson will earn $2.7 million in 2017 and is due for a sizable raise in arbitration next year. "The Cubs got another high-leverage reliever through the end of the 2018 season, as well as a quality backup catcher". The Mets have agreed to trade reliever Addison Reed to the Bos. I think we've done a pretty good job of that since the break.
