MLB insider: Cardinals make major strides in Frankie Montas trade talks

The St. Louis Cardinals are viewed by rival executives as the favorite to land Oakland Athletics ace Frankie Montas at the trade deadline. Montas has been available since the offseason, but the A’s held out in hopes of receiving a larger prospect package at the deadline. That was a wise move by Oakland, especially with the number of starting pitchers injured around baseball.

This Frankie Montas trade package could get A’s ace to Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers have created an elite rotation out of a number of supplemental pieces in 2022, thriving despite losing Walker Buehler for most of, if not all, of the season. Add in some Clayton Kershaw concerns, Andrew Heaney’s disappearing act, and Max Scherzer’s departure to New York, and there are plenty of remaining issues that won’t be solved by Dustin May’s second-half return.

Frankie Montas injury update: Oakland A’s dodge bullet

It was easy to assume the worst when Frankie Montas departed Sunday’s game after just one inning. His velocity was down by three to four miles per hour, an extremely concerning sign and one that could foretell an injury. That was a viable concern when the Oakland A’s announced that Montas was not removed due to a pending transaction.

Frankie Montas leaves Sunday game early with reduced velocity

Bad news from the Oakland A’s game on Sunday. Starting pitcher Frankie Montas exited the game early, after throwing just one inning. The month of July just began, which means we’ve entered trade season, and Montas is considered a strong candidate to be dealt before the deadline. However, the star right-hander was not pulled from this game due to such a transaction, reports Matt Kawahara of the S.F. Chronicle. The team will provide further updates, but “he has NOT been traded,” adds insider Martin Gallegos.
