MLB trade rumors: Giants open to talks on Johnny Cueto, Jeff Samardzija

The Giants are open to discussing possible trades involving starters Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija, according to Buster Olney of ESPN.

However, his contract could present a problem for prospective trade partners. The 31-year-old right-hander is set to earn $84 million over the next four years, but he can opt out of his contract at the end of this season. Most experts believe Cueto will opt out, but...

Rockies lose pitcher’s duel to Cardinals, 3-2

St. Louis Cardinals sacrifice to win game in ninth inning The Colorado Rockies lost a pitcher’s duel to the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 after some timely Cards hitting in the first inning and some good situational sacrifices in the ninth.

Folty, Braves aim for desert bounceback

Can the Braves snap their three-game skid? They’ll have to beat Taijuan Walker to do so. The Braves managed to avoid a three-game losing streak between June 12 and July 17. But, with a few days left in July, they’ve racked up two: first a three-game sweep at the hands of the Cubs, and now another skid on their West Coast road trip following a series-opening loss to the Diamondbacks. Mike Foltynewicz will take the hill and try to get the team back on track. Folty faced the Diamondbacks in Atlanta a couple of weeks ago and allowed three runs while pitching into the sixth. That’s been...
