July 30 roundup: Ubaldo to Cleveland?

Less than a day remain’s until Sunday’s 4 p.m. ET Non-Waiver Trade Deadline, and one of the best arms in baseball is reportedly close to being moved.

The Denver Post’s Troy Renck reports the Indians are on the edge of bringing in Ubaldo Jimenez from the Rockies, for a package including Drew Pomeranz. The Tigers were also in on the conversation, also thought to prominently include the Yankees.

For for the latest developments with Jimenez, keep up with MLB.com’s Rockies beat writer Thomas Harding here, and MLB.com’s Indians beat writer Jordan Bastian here .

Other moves Saturday didn’t have quite the star pull, but were still significant: Detroit did end up with starting pitching, what they coveted most, in Doug Fister, and got some relief help, too, in David Pauley. To the Mariners went Charlie Furbush, Casper Wells and third-base prospect Francisco Martinez, as well as a player to be named.

  • Texas had been keen on Heath Bell, but the Padres will still have plenty of suitors if the Rangers no longer want to make a deal now that they have Koji Uehara.
  • The Nationals are busy, making two trades on Saturday — one dealing Jerry Hairston Jr., the other dealing Jason Marquis — and reportedly were talking with Minnesota about acquiring Denard Span.
Down to the wire we go.
