Jed Hoyer confirms the Cubs’ involvement, but the Tigers got the deal they wanted from the Astros.
That was nuts. Verlander is an Astro now.
With whom?! With whom?! The Cubs have been connected to Verlander for quite some time now.
It’s the second trade deadline of the year – a less thrilling one, to be sure, but an important one.
Otani is one of the world’s greatest talents, but has missed most of this season with leg injuries.
Russell was scratched at Iowa, and is headed back to Chicago for further evaluation.
Bruce Levine reports that the Cubs and Tigers are still talking about Verlander.
Is it the Cubs? Right now, I’m not so sure about that. But in the offseason, I still like Verlander as a trade target.
I’m not saying the Cubs should trade for him now, but explore it in the offseason? Definitely.
Otani rumors have become very cloudy in recent months, but one thing is for sure: you can’t count the Cubs out yet.
One report suggests they may consider it, but the truth is that it’s largely up to the Tigers.

Kris Bryant on a Hypothetical Bryce Harper Addition to the Cubs: “We’ll Definitely Welcome Him Here”
It’s all still just fun and games … but I can’t help but really enjoy when the Cubs and Bryce Harper are discussed in the same sentence.
The Cubs may have just gotten a huge boost to their chances of signing one of the most exciting players on the planet.

If Verlander is dealt this month, then he probably won’t be available in the offseason.
Still dreaming on Bryant and Harper in the same lineup, and the players’ wives know it.
