FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: ALL QUIET ON JEFF SAMARDZJIA FRONT



A front office official with the Chicago White Sox said on the condition of anonymity that "all is quiet" on the Jeff Samardzjia trade talks.  With the Toronto Blue Jays having acquired David Price on Thursday, that eliminated the most interested part for Samardzjia.  Instead the White Sox will likely keep Samardzjia and try to overtake the Minnesota Twins in the AL Central.

Analysis:  This is mildly surprising as Samardzjia had quite a bit of interest early on but now that has cooled with the Dodgers, Astros, and Blue Jays all getting their hands on pitchers.  We are hearing the Chicago Cubs remain interested in a possible reunion and are dangling Javier Baez which bears watching.  Also don't discount the New York Yankees if they can't work out a deal for Yovani Gallardo.
