The struggling giants are ready to sell and Logan is willing to discuss just about anyone on his roster besides Webb, reports New York Post, Outfielder Jock Pedersen, who is currently on the concussion list, and lefty Carlos Rodone are the club’s two top trade chips. Teams will undoubtedly also call about Mike Yastrzemsky and Austin Slater.

The potential availability of Rodone would put another high-end starter on a business market that has Luis Castillo has already been spotted, tackling the Mariners, The veteran left winger could run out of his contract after the season, so his rental is likely, but he is also a difference-maker who can dominate a great lineup even on his best days.

The Cardinals have held trade talks with the Astros involving right-hander Jake Odorizzi, according to St. Louis Post-Dispatch, St. Louis also considered Red Sox rightful Nathan Iovaldi and Angels right-hander Noah Syndergaard, although it is unknown whether they had business discussions about the two impending free agents. Clearly, the Cardinals want – and need – rotation help.

Houston is one of the few contenders that has enough rotation depth to turn a starter away. They currently have six starters (Odorizzi, Cristian Javier, Luis García, Jose Urquidi, Framber Valdez, Justin Verlander), with Lance McCullers Jr nearing a return from his flexor injury. The Astros figure more than anything to look for a center fielder on the trading time frame.
