The 2020 MLB season is unlike one we’ve ever seen, which means the trade deadline could be wonky as well.
How the 2020 MLB trade deadline is going to go is anyone’s guess: there’s no guarantee there will much action and there’s also no guarantee teams won’t make moves, either.
Somewhat surprisingly, there’s already been a flurry of deals made over the last week, and a lot of them not-so-small. There’s also a lot of names left who could be on the move, including Mike Clevinger, Francisco Lindor and Josh Hader.
Sporting News will be tracking all the latest rumors, deals and more from the 2020 MLB trade deadline below.
Rumors floated about that the Indians were looking to trade the starter, and they came to be true, as they shipped Clevinger to the Padres for a package that includes Cal Quantrill and more. An interesting, mutually beneficial deal on its surface.
Total haul for Cleveland in the Mike Clevinger deal, per sources: RHP Cal Quantrill, LF Josh Naylor, C Austin Hedges, SS Gabriel Arias, LHP Joey Cantillo, SS Owen Miller.
Teams talking to the #Nationals have made it clear: They’re looking to buy today.
They’ve asked about a wide range of available starters.
A name that could fit: Robbie Ray. Drafted by the Nats in the 12th round of the 2010 Bryce Harper draft. Later dealt for Doug Fister.
The Nationals are still willing to defend their 2019 world championship with a fight, but there’s a question of what exactly they have left to give in a trade. Still worth monitoring.

The Twins’ rotation has been in flux but it looks like they’re looking towards a small bit of the future by trying to acquire controllable starting pitching. Both Lynn and Bundy are under team control through the 2021 season.
Nola is a late-bloomer who can play the infield in addition to catcher. Because he didn’t reach the bigs until last year at 29, he’s under team control through 2025. He has 15 home runs in 108 career games, and the Padres’ front office apparently believes that sample size will translate to years of years of quality play.
San Diego did give up a lot in this deal, including consensus top-100 prospect Taylor Trammell.
We’ve acquired OF @Taytram24, INF Ty France, C @LuisTorrens13 and RHP Andrés Muñoz in exchange for C Austin Nola, RHP @DanAlt3225 and RHP Austin Adams.

Sources: The Padres are trading for catcher Jason Castro, sending righty reliever Gerardo Reyes to the Angels in return. Deal is pending medicals.
In addition to Lance Lynn, the Texas Rangers have been discussing outfielder Joey Gallo in potential trades, sources tell ESPN. The price on both is high, and it’s why one GM said « the Rangers hold the keys to the deadline. » If they do sell, it’s impact guys in pennant races.
Lance Lynn is in the midst of a sensational season, so it’s no surprise that the Rangers would move on from the veteran righty, who is a free agent at the end of the season. What is somewhat surprising is looking to move on from Joey Gallo, who is a monstrous middle of the order bat. While Gallo is hitting sub-.200 on the year, he still has 7 home runs and a 110 OPS+. Gallo isn’t a free agent until following the 2022 season.
There’s an increasing belief among teams Mike Clevinger has a good chance to be dealt. Indians have 6 very good or better starters, all on cost-efficient deals. Price is appropriately high. Braves, Padres, Yankees, Dodgers among many who’ve been in contact.
Clevinger, 29, is under team control for another year, so he’d be more than just a rental. Cleveland would be dealing from a position of strength, and the price would likely be very, very high.
The #Padres have acquired Mitch Moreland from the Red Sox in exchange for Jeisson Rosario and Hudson Potts. Details: https://t.co/tsYyd76s9o pic.twitter.com/JMHXETMxJO
This is something of a surprise, considering the Rockies tend to stay put during the trade deadline. Still, Givens is in the midst of a career year, pitching to a 1.38 ERA (2.60 FIP) in 12 games this season.
We have acquired INF Tyler Nevin, INF Terrin Vavra, and a player to be named later from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for RHP Mychal Givens.
The Cubs added some help to their lineup, acquiring Jose Martinez from the Rays for two PTBNL and/or cash considerations.
Martinez will help the Chicago lineup vs. lefty pitching: he has a career OPS vs. lefties well over .900.
The #Cubs today acquired INF/OF José Martínez from the Rays for a player to be named or cash consideration as well as a player to be named or cash consideration.
