9:14 a.m.: Strong take here from ESPN’s Buster Olney, who expects the Nationals to move Harper by the end of the day. Olney mentions the Cleveland Indians, Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers as potential suitors.

8:43 a.m.: Could the Red Sox address their bullpen need by adding an old friend in reliever Brad Ziegler?

8:21 a.m.: MLB Network’s Jon Heyman is throwing a bit of a wet blanket on the Bryce Harper trade rumors.

8 a.m.: The Cleveland Indians reportedly could consider speedy Cincinnati Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton, per Heyman.

7:55 a.m.: The New York Yankees apparently inquired the Mets about veteran outfielder/third baseman Joey Bautista, MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reports. It doesn’t sound like any deal is imminent, though.

7:45 a.m. ET: Fasten your seatbelts, folks. The last lap before Major League Baseball’s non-waiver trade deadline could be a wild one.

— Pittsburgh Pirates pick up closer Keone Kela from the Texas Rangers.

— New York Yankees trade for Minnesota Twins starter Lance Lynn.
