MLB Rumors: Yankees’ Joey Gallo drawing interest from three teams Frankie Montas Market comes into focus.

The 2022 MLB trade deadline is Tuesday, Aug. 6 at 6 p.m. 2, so teams now have less than 72 hours to fill their needs and refine their rosters for the stretch run. We’ve already seen some big names dealt and there are surely more trades to come. Here are Sunday’s trade deadline rumors.

The Montas market is focused on three teams.

Athletics rights holder Frankie Montas’ market focuses on the Blue Jays, Twins and Yankees. According to MLB.com. Now that Luis Castillo is a Mariner., Montas is the best starter available at the deadline. He has shown no ill effects from the shoulder problem he suffered earlier this month, and will remain under team control as an arbitration-eligible player in 2023.

The Twins need more starters than the Blue Jays and Yankees, though all three teams could use another arm. The Reds acquired two top prospects and two secondary pieces in the Castillo trade, setting up a market for Montas, who offers control of a single team. The A’s are selling and reducing payroll. It’s about when Montas will be traded, if not.
