Hannah Foslien/Getty ImagesOn Saturday Steve Carlton Jersey , the New York Mets traded closer Jeurys Familia to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for two prospects and international bonus pool money.That deal took one of the bigger names remaining off the trading block, but numerous position players and pitchers are bound to change cities before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.Here's a look at the latest news on two second basemen and the most-coveted reliever on the market.Brian DozierPer ABC 5 Eyewitness News sports anchor and 1500 ESPN Radio host Darren Wolfson, there's some trade chatter surrounding Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier:Darren Wolfson DWolfsonKSTPTheres been a lot of chatter about the Brewers being after #MNTwins 2B Brian Dozier, and rightfully so. But word is another team has been showing stronger interest. Twins FO definitely open-minded to moving the fan/media favorite.Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports and The Athletic also said the Milwaukee Brewers are interested in Dozier:Ken Rosenthal Ken_RosenthalAmong the players the #Brewers are expected to target now that they have lost Machado: #Twins 2B Brian Dozier. Team also will explore pitching upgrades as well.Four players (Jonathan Villar, Brad Miller, Eric Sogard and Hernan Perez) have played second base for the Brewers this season. Villar has been there the most (74 games), but he's currently on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained thumb. Prior to the injury, Villar was batting .261 with a .693 OPS.The issue is that none of the four aforementioned players are hitting particularly well this year, so the Brewers may want to find someone with a little more pop at second base.Although he is currently experiencing a down year, Dozier could help in that regard. For the year, the Twins' second baseman has 16 home runs. He only has a so-so .724 OPS this year, but the 31-year-old Dozier sports a .774 OPS lifetime and may experience some positive regression soon.With the Los Angeles Dodgers dealing for Baltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado, the National League pennant race just got much tougher for the senior circuit's other 14 teams. The Brewers should make a move here to try to keep up. Asdrubal CabreraPer Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, numerous teams have interest in New York Mets second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera:Mark Feinsand FeinsandFamilia not the only Mets player drawing interest; source says multiple teams have inquired about Asdrubal Cabrera, though no deal is imminent. Brewers and D-backs believed to be among potential suitors.Putting two and two together, it's clear the Brewers are looking for a second baseman, as they have reported interest in two of the best ones on the trading block. The Arizona Diamondbacks, however http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-aaron-nola-jersey , could be a better fit.Cabrera has been a shortstop for most of his career, so he's a capable middle infielder who can handle either position. Second baseman Ketel Marte (nine home runs, .247 batting average, .745 OPS) and shortstop Nick Ahmed (12 home runs, .226 average, .702 OPS) haven't done poorly at the plate this year, but Cabrera (17 home runs, .819 OPS) would be an upgrade over either of them at the dish.It also helps that Cabrera is a switch hitter, as he can replace Ahmed on days Arizona is facing a righty. For the season, Ahmed is managing just a .650 OPS against righties, although his lefty OPS is a solid .800. Against lefties, Cabrera (at second) and Ahmed could handle the middle infield responsibilities.Ultimately, Cabrera is in the midst of a solid two-and-a-half year run where he's posted 54 home runs and an .806 OPS. He should be a strong asset for any team that picks him up prior to the deadline. Zach BrittonPer Buster Olney of ESPN, expect Baltimore Orioles reliever Zach Britton to get moved sooner rather than later:Buster Olney Buster_ESPNSources: Orioles doing their business with alacrity -- they are looking to move Zach Britton this weekend or early in the week ahead. Lots of contenders continue to be involved in the conversation.Buster Olney Buster_ESPNBritton is a one-of-a-kind item on the market right now, so the Orioles will likely get good return -- tons of closing experience, power stuff, lefty, and because he didnt pitch in first half Juan Samuel Jersey , should be relatively fresh for stretch drive/October.A look at the bottom half of the league in bullpen ERA reveals that numerous contenders need some relief help. Of note, the Seattle Mariners (16th), Philadelphia Phillies (17th), Atlanta Braves (19th), St. Louis Cardinals (24th), Colorado Rockies (28th) and Cleveland Indians (29th) are there.The Tribe made some moves for bullpen help recently, so they are likely out of any bidding for Britton, but a desperate team looking for a solid arm may go over the top and give the Orioles an offer they can't refuse.Of note, the Braves look like a very good fit. Gabriel Burns of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution gave reasoning why:"Arodys Vizcaino is on the disabled list again, and despite converting 15 of 17 save chances, the Braves would benefit from adding another option. A.J. Minter and Dan Winkler have both worked the ninth, but their performances have left room for improvement."Adding a pitcher such as Britton could help the rest of the unit fall into place. Vizcaino, Minter and Winkler wouldn鈥檛 routinely handle the ninth, giving manager Brian Snitker an abundance of options for the late innings."Vizcaino has a sterling 1.65 ERA this season, but he's on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.It's possible that Vizcaino has complications or doesn't return as effective as he was prior to the injury. Hopefully Vizcaino comes back soon and 100 percent healthy, but if not, Britton would be a huge asset to the Braves bullpen.Atlanta may have an added incentive to obtain Britton: Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphiareported that the Phillies are in the mix. First-place Philadelphia leads second-place Atlanta by just a half-game in the NL East, and if one of those teams gets the O's southpaw Larry Andersen Jersey , the slight edge likely goes to that squad down the stretch for the division title. SEATTLE (AP) — Dee Gordon says it’s too early for the Seattle Mariners to be worried about the wild-card math. He thinks they should just concentrate on winning games.Nelson Cruz and Denard Span hit back-to-back home runs, and Seattle overcame sloppy infield defense to beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 on Wednesday night.Despite winning a home series for the first time since July 22, the Mariners failed to gain ground on Oakland in the race for the second AL wild card. They still trail by 5½ games with 22 remaining.“We’ve got to play,” Gordon said. “We can’t look at the scoreboard. We can’t look at other people.”Mike Leake (9-9) gave up two unearned runs in six innings to earn his first victory since June 23. Edwin Diaz locked down his major league-leading 53rd save, tied for fifth-most in a season.Taking advantage of three Seattle errors, the Orioles grabbed a 2-1 lead in the fifth.First baseman Robinson Cano couldn’t dig out shortstop Jean Segura’s throw on Jonathan Villar’s grounder for the first miscue. Cedric Mullins scored on the play to tie it 1-all.Two batters later, Adam Jones’ grounder glanced off Segura’s glove and into left field. Villar raced around and beat Span’s throw home to put Baltimore ahead.But leave it to Cruz to supply much-needed power at the right time.With two outs in the fifth, Cruz hammered a 411-foot home run off Andrew Cashner to straightaway center field to tie the game at 2. It was Cruz’s 34th home run of the season.“We needed that,” Span said. “Even though it was a one-run lead they had, it felt like we were down by three or four. (Cruz’s home run) sparked us a little bit, and gave us a little bit more momentum.”Span took Cashner (4-14) deep in the next at-bat, sending a drive to right field, and the Mariners regained the lead. That also ended Cashner’s outing.“Andrew had a lot of counts in his favor,” Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. “He just couldn’t finish off some guys.”Span’s RBI single in the seventh scored Cruz, boosting Seattle’s lead to 4-2. Span later scored on Guillermo Heredia’s sacrifice bunt.Mitch Haniger gave Seattle a 1-0 lead with a home run in the third, extending his hitting streak to 17 games — the longest active run in the majors.Since taking two of three games from the Chicago White Sox in late July at Safeco Field, the Mariners were 0-4-1 in their past five home series before the Orioles rolled into town.“It was nice for us to kick it into gear a little bit in the second half of that game,” manager Scott Servais said. “That is how we need to play.”YANKEE REUNIONAfter spending six-plus seasons with the New York Yankees http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-robin-roberts-jersey , reliever Adam Warren knows it will be a little weird facing his former team in a pivotal three-game series starting Friday.Seattle acquired Warren in a trade July 30 for $1.25 million in international signing bonus money.“I was probably the seventh guy in that bullpen. It was so deep,” Warren said. “Pitching in a little bit more important situations (in Seattle) has been nice.”Which of his ex-teammates is likeliest to give him a hard time this weekend? Veteran outfielder Brett Gardner would be in the conversation.“I am sure he will try and get in my head,” Warren said.QUIET CLUBHOUSEA day after a fracas reportedly broke out between Gordon and Segura in the Seattle clubhouse, all was calm around the team.Segura pitched a wiffle ball to his son on the field, and had him around the squad leading up to first pitch. Gordon also seemed in good spirits — but still in no mood to rehash what transpired.“We’re all good,” Gordon said. “We get to play baseball.”ROSTER RESHUFFLINGOrioles: OF Craig Gentry was released and the team recalled INF Steve Wilkerson. He will be a bench player who can cover six different positions. . LHP Josh Rogers is the scheduled starter Sunday in Tampa Bay but could be bumped for RHP Alex Cobb, Showalter said.Mariners: After clearing waivers, RHP Rob Whalen was sent outright to Triple-A Tacoma.TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: OF-DH Mark Trumbo will have surgery on his right knee Thursday or Friday in Baltimore, Showalter said.Mariners: RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (right shoulder) pitched for Class A Everett in a playoff game, giving up three earned runs in two innings. He will be re-evaluated Thursday to determine his next step.UP NEXTOrioles: RHP Dylan Bundy (7-13, 5.36 ERA) faces All-Star lefty Blake Snell (17-5, 2.02) and the Rays in the opener of a three-game series Friday night. Snell, the AL pitcher of the month for August, has won five straight starts.Mariners: LHP James Paxton (11-5, 3.74 ERA) pitches Friday against RHP Masahiro Tanaka (10-5, 3.83) and the Yankees. Paxton had a successful return from the disabled list Saturday in beating Oakland. He struck out 10 in five innings. Tanaka is 6-0 with a 2.34 ERA in eight starts against Seattle — and 3-0 with a 2.17 ERA at Safeco Field.
