MLB Trade Deadline: Dodgers get Darvish; Red Sox & Nats add arms

"The Texas Rangers are expected to be "active" ahead of Monday's non-waiver trade deadline and are more sold than ever that they will deal Yu Darvish". In return, the Rangers will receive second baseman Willie Calhoun, right-handed pitcher A.J. Monday's trade closes the door on Darvish's six-year career with the Rangers - at least for the time being; the team could very well re-sign the soon-to-be free agent in the offseason.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston Astros and Cleveland Indians have been in negotiations with Texas. The Yankees have made top prospects Clint Frazier and Torres off-limits, though their list is just as deep as that of the Dodgers.

Though Darvish isn't quite a postseason veteran himself with only two playoff outings under his belt, he brings some bona fide insurance to that pitching staff and makes the Dodgers that much scarier in October. For a matter of seconds, the gap between the excellent but injured Nats, playing.602 ball entering Monday, and the sun-surface-hot, yet even more injured Dodgers, who are playing ridiculous.702 baseball, become slightly narrower. That was fine; going to win this division no matter what, and the left-handed Watson was a nice balance to an improved but still righty-heavy bullpen. He went to four All-Star games.

Los Angeles sent 21-year-old right-hander Angel (Hair-mawn) German and 18-year-old infielder Oneil (Own-yell) Cruz to Pittsburgh.

Darvish compiled a 52-39 record with a 3.42 ERA and 960 strikeouts in 782 innings over five years with Texas - and that's without a ton of help. Darvish will now join an already powerful Dodgers team and will likely act as the clear number two starter behind Clayton Kershaw.

Darvish is 0-5 with a 5.81 ERA over his last eight starts.

Darvish, 30, is 6-9 with a 4.01 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 2017. After getting hit in the hand, Martinez has been launching home runs in the desert.

The Dodgers open a nine-game trip in Atlanta on Tuesday, when Maeda is set to start. On the other hand he is still just 27 years old, he finished third in the AL Cy Young voting just two years ago and he is under control for the Yankees for the next two seasons at ages 28 and 29.

In addition to Darvish, the Dodgers acquired 32-year-old left-hander Tony Watson from the Pittsburgh Pirates and 28-year-old left-hander Tony Cingrani from the Cincinnati Reds.
