    After attempting to trade tight end Adam Shaheen, the Miami Dolphins placed him on injured reserve on Tuesday morning while they also made four cuts ahead of the NFL’s 4 p.m. deadline to get down to 85 players. The Dolphins waived offensive lineman Cole Banwart, wide receiver DeVonte Dedmon and defensive lineman Jordan Williams and also waived cornerback Tino Ellis with an injury settlement. Shaheen was traded last week to the Houston Texans for a late draft pick swap of a Dolphins’ seventh-round selection for a Houston sixth-rounder. The deal was nixed due to a failed physical with the Texans that flagged Shaheen for a preexisting knee condition. Shaheen has now decided to have surgery performed on his knee after the discovery. He was practicing with the Dolphins this training camp before the physical. “That’s a classic example of the process of the National Football League just being spot on,” McDaniel said on Tuesday morning, addressing how the finalized trade was rescinded. “He was practicing with nothing holding him back. … That’s why you have a physical before things can...
    The image of Ian Happ and Willson Contreras embracing in the home dugout at Wrigley Field represented a moment of goodbyes for what appeared to await the Chicago Cubs All-Stars. That moment one week ago now becomes a reminder of the ups and downs leading up to the trade deadline, the uncertainties of the unknown. Both players thought that July 26 day was their last at Wrigley in a Cubs uniform. Yet Contreras and Happ will return with their teammates Friday for the Cubs’ next homestand. Despite the Cubs’ 6-0 loss Tuesday to the St. Louis Cardinals, a lightheartedness lingered. Contreras barely could keep a smile off his face after president of baseball operations Jed Hoyer did not trade him because of insufficient value in return. Happ, meanwhile, joked it was the media’s fault for making him think he would be traded: “All those stories and the cameras the last couple days at Wrigley, it’s all on you guys.” Happ understands his situation, however. His last year of team control in 2023 before free agency made him an attractive option...
    The Philadelphia Phillies have bolstered their bullpen for the upcoming playoff by acquiring veteran reliever David Robertson from the Chicago Cubs.   The Phillies secured the 37-year-old with a little over two hours remaining in Tuesday's trade window, via ESPN's baseball insider Jeff Passan. Chicago got a pitcher in return from Philadelphia, acquiring Ben Brown, who will now join the struggling 41-60 Cubs.  Robertson is no stranger to the City of Brotherly Love, after signing a two-year, $23 million contract with the Phillies in 2019. However, he underwent elbow surgery in 2020 and was released.  The Philadelphia Phillies have bolstered their bullpen for the upcoming playoff by acquiring veteran reliever David Robertson from the Chicago Cubs Fortunately for Philadelphia, Robertson has risen toward his former heights this season in somewhat of a renaissance year. The former Alabama star has given up a measly 23 hits across 40 and a 1/3 innings.  In addition, he has accumulated a 2.23 ERA and 14 saves despite Chicago's struggles.  Philadelphia are in a much stronger position in the National League than the Cubs and currently...
    In what may be the first of several major trades involving top-level relievers, the San Diego Padres have reportedly acquired Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader for four players ahead of Tuesday's deadline. Padres spokespeople did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com's request for confirmation. The price for Hader, a four-time All-Star, wasn't cheap: Veteran closer Taylor Rogers, pitching prospect Robert Gasser, outfielder Esteury Ruiz and right-hander Dinelson Lamet are all headed to Milwaukee.

The 28-year-old southpaw is eligible for arbitration next season after earning $11 million for the 2022 campaign. Unless San Diego is prepared to re-sign Hader, he might just be a rental for...
    As one of the biggest names on the list of potential trades in Major League Baseball, Nationals star Juan Soto is still getting used to his name being thrown around in the media. Trade talks continue to circulate ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline as the Dominican Republic-born outfielder has rejected multiple offers to stay in the nation's capitol.  The 2022 Home Run Derby winner has received multiple contract extension proposals, with the most recent being a reported 15-year, $440million deal. That contract would have made Soto the highest paid player in baseball, overtaking the $426.5 million deal given to Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout. Juan Soto's time in Washington could come to a very abrupt end this week  Soto won the 2022 Home Run Derby, as part of his second All-Star selection Soto was a key contributor on the 2019 Nationals team that won the World Series That rejection of a contract offer has set a rumor mill alight within MLB circles, as fans try putting together potential trades to see if their favorite teams could land the slugger....
    Willson Contreras was a topic of conversation this Tuesday’s episode of the Baseball Insiders. Will the Cubs find a suitor for their longtime catcher? Due to technical difficulties, the Baseball Insiders was not live on Tuesday. But never fear, baseball fans, FanSided‘s Mark Carman and Robert Murray were able to scrap the live stream for the day and still provide the listeners with top-notch behind-the-scenes news and notes from your favorite baseball teams. Bert took to Twitter to answer some fan questions, and obviously with the trade deadline just three weeks away, rumors and speculation were at the top of the agenda on Tuesday’s show.Where will Willson Contreras end up?Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras still very likely to be traded before the deadline. After offloading Anthony Rizzo, Javier Baez, and Kris Bryant last summer, look for the Cubbies to wave goodbye to Contreras before Aug. 2. So who might be interested, you ask? A number of teams could be in on the All-Star, but some clubs that Murray rattled off were the New York Mets, San Diego Padres, Houston Astros,...
    Goalie James Reimer had a fairly uneventful morning to start the week: he hung out with his daughters, made some breakfast with the television on in the background, and had a doctor’s appointment before he and his Sharks teammates boarded a charter plane and flew to Calgary. “And that was pretty much the trade deadline,” Reimer said. The Sharks on Monday, in the hours before the noon (PT) deadline, sent defenseman Jacob Middleton to the Minnesota Wild for goalie Kaapo Kahkonen and a 2022 fifth-round draft choice, leading to some speculation that Reimer might also be on the move. Reimer, though, stayed put and will start Tuesday’s game against the Flames. Sharks coach Bob Boughner said Kahkonen will start Thursday’s game in Edmonton against the Oilers. “It’s trade deadline day. I’ve been through 12 of them by now, and you never know what’s going to happen,” Reimer said. “You care, but you can’t control it. So you just sit back and let it happen and see what happens by the end of the day.” After Kahkonen starts Thursday and Adin...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Like roughly 90 percent of the NFL, the New England stood pat and let the NFL trade deadline come and go on Tuesday. The 4pm deadline hit without Bill Belichick making a move. That means the 4-4 Patriots will remain who they have been so far this season. At least they’re a team that is on the rise after winning two straight, a team that Belichick must feel confident enough in to continue on the path he charted out over the offseason.

The Texans made a trade, sending defensive end Charles Omenihu to the San Francisco 49ers. That was it for Tuesday’s moves. But Deshaun Watson did not change zip codes. Nor did Odell Beckham Jr. or any other disgruntled player. Tuesday had all the makings of a classic deadline day in the NFL, with a few rumors and no real sizzle.

The Blue Jays have designated Hand for assignment, reports Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet. The move clears a roster spot for catcher Danny Jansen, who was activated off the injured list. © Provided by CBS Sports Toronto acquired Hand, a three-time All-Star with the Padres and Cleveland, from the Nationals at the trade deadline. He pitched to a 3.59 ERA with 42 strikeouts in 42 2/3 innings with Washington prior to the trade, then allowed 10 runs (seven earned) in 8 2/3 innings with the Blue Jays. Hand blew one save and took two losses in 11 games with the Blue Jays. Although Hand's numbers were strong last season (2.05 ERA and 29 strikeouts in...

What already looked like a long shot has turned into more of a Hail Mary, as the Nationals have notified the Mets that Scherzer, the three-time Cy Young Award winner who can be a free agent this winter, didn’t want to play for them, as first reported by SNY. Multiple sources indicate that the 37-year-old would prefer to join one of the National League’s West Coast teams, particularly the Dodgers or Padres, by Friday afternoon’s trade deadline. Even if Scherzer expressed more of an openness to joining the Mets, the Nats themselves were not keen on aiding their National League East rival, a second source said, nor...

Scherzer's stint is backdated to June 12, meaning he'll be eligible to return in a week's time. In corresponding moves, the Nationals designated right-hander Rogelio Armenteros for assignment and purchased the contract of fellow righty Justin Miller from Triple-A Rochester.  © Provided by CBS Sports Scherzer, 37 come late July, exited his outing on Friday after throwing just six pitches. Prior to then, he'd been off to a phenomenal start to this season. In 13 appearances so far, he's compiled a 2.21 ERA (171 ERA+) and a 6.93 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 77 ⅓ innings pitched. Scherzer's fitness is worth monitoring for a variety of reasons, including his availability for the All-Star Game and his expected standing as the top pitcher on the trade block. Provided Scherzer does return next...
    Fantasy football writer Andy Holloway deserves credit for summing up the 2020 NFL trade deadline in one newly created word: “Dudline.” The deadline came and went Tuesday afternoon at 4 p.m. ET with little fanfare. Only two trades occurred on deadline day, with the Dolphins sending away receiver Isaiah Ford to the Patriots while acquiring running back DeAndre Washington from the Chiefs. The NFL’s trade deadline is never the same raucous affair the NBA and MLB deadlines often are. But it was quieter than usual on Election Day because, just like everything else, the 2020 NFL trade deadline was impacted by COVID-19. “Listen, you’re always going to take a look and see if there’s an opportunity to help your football team,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson told media Tuesday. “But honestly, like you said, with the way COVID is and getting that player in here, they are not going to be caught up to speed right away and it’s going to be a week or so before you can really get them into the building. There’s all kinds of things...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Tuesday is deadline day in the NFL, and you can really flip a coin on what the Patriots are going to do ahead of 4 p.m. At 2-5, the team could be sellers, but Bill Belichick could just as easily look to add to the team to improve their chances at making a playoff run, Or he could do what he usually does and picks up a player on the cheap that will make more of an impact next year. No one really knows at the moment, and that includes the hooded-one himself. “I dunno,” Belichick said when asked about possible moves by the Patriots ahead of the deadline. “Yeah, I dunno at this point.” We’re certainly going to hear a lot of rumors between now and when the NFL tells teams to put their pencils down. But as Belichick explained Tuesday morning, don’t believe everything you hear on the rumor mill. “Again, like a lot of things in this general subject, there is a lot more talk than there is action,” said Belichick. “Nick [Caserio] has summarized...
    Stephon Gilmore may be available for a trade, but it’ll take a pretty penny to get him. The Patriots are telling inquiring teams they want a first-round pick and a player back for the All-Pro cornerback, ESPN reported Tuesday. Gilmore, who has another season left on his contract at a $17 million cap hit, has been the Patriots’ most talked about trade candidate ahead of Tuesday’s 4 p.m. deadline. The 30-year-old added fuel to the speculation last week when he put his house on the market, with the listing asking for final offers by 5 p.m. Tuesday — shortly after the deadline expires. The defending AP Defensive Player of the Year sat out Sunday’s game against the Bills with a knee injury after missing a game earlier this season because of a bout with COVID-19. see also Bill Belichick: Patriots sold out and now we are doomed Bill Belichick opened up about the Patriots struggles on Monday....

    BOSTON (CBS) — The NFL trade deadline is now just one day away, and the Patriots have fallen even further back in the standings. But that doesn’t mean Bill Belichick will be selling off one of his best players come Tuesday afternoon. According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, the Patriots probably won’t be dealing star cornerback Stephon Gilmore ahead of Tuesday’s trade deadline. Rumors of a potential Gilmore trade have swirled over the last few weeks, and he even put his Foxboro home on the market, but Rapoport says the situation “sounds like more smoke than fire.” “But it simply doesn’t sound feasible at this point, nor is it even clear that the Patriots would want to,” he wrote of a Gilmore trade on Sunday. “The Gilmore situation sounds like more smoke than fire, and his knee injury on Thursday complicates it even more.” Gilmore missed Sunday’s loss in Buffalo with a knee injury, and though he hasn’t played like the best corner in the NFL this season, he’s still playing at a pretty high level. But Gilmore has just one...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The NFL Trade Deadline is one week away, and the New England Patriots could certainly use some help on the offensive side of the ball. But if you were hoping to get a better picture of the team’s intentions at the deadline, you won’t be getting it from Bill Belichick. The Patriots head coach was asked about the upcoming trade deadline during his Tuesday morning video conference, but said he doesn’t have any gauge on what could potentially happen with his team. At the moment, he’s focused on getting his 2-4 Patriots ready for a key divisional showdown with the Buffalo Bills. “That is something that I’ll check in with Nick [Caserio] on here this week I usually don’t get too involved in that,” said Belichick. “The communication on that really goes through the personnel department with Nick and his staff. I would say that, generally speaking, the coaches are pretty involved in game preparations at this point in time until something becomes more of a realistic opportunity. So we’ll see how that goes. “I don’t really...
    A look at what’s happening around the majors today: ___ DEADLINE DAY The Padres, Cubs and Braves were among the clubs that added players in a burst of deals a day before Monday’s trade deadline. San Diego added first baseman Mitch Moreland from Boston, Chicago picked up slugger Jose Martinez from Tampa Bay, and Atlanta acquired left-hander Tommy Milone from Baltimore. Bigger names could still move, with right-handed starters Mike Clevinger of Cleveland and Lance Lynn of Texas among those rumored to be available. Rangers slugger Joey Gallo and Diamondbacks center fielder Starling Marte might also be trade targets. Teams have until 4 p.m. ET to complete their deals. ENCORE Looking to follow up his no-hitter Tuesday against Pittsburgh, right-hander Lucas Giolito starts for the Chicago White Sox at Minnesota in a matchup of AL Central contenders. Chicago is tied with Cleveland for the division lead, while the Twins are 1½ games back after losing five straight.

    ATLANTA — Just in time, it sure sounds like both Deivi Garcia and Clarke Schmidt could make their major league debuts this weekend in the Subway Series at Yankee Stadium. Just in time to potentially boost the Yankees’ uneven starting rotation. Just in time to give Yankees fans hope after seeing this wackadoo season turn into “Next Man Up 2: The Smell of Fear.” Just in time, most importantly, before the trade deadline. With Monday marking the last day clubs can make deals, with small samples en vogue, shouldn’t the Yankees throw Garcia and Schmidt out on the big stage once, to get a sense of what they have with this duo before pulling the trigger on a significant external acquisition? All the more so with Tuesday night’s bad weather here creating three doubleheaders in the next five days — Wednesday against the Braves at Truist Park, then Friday and Sunday against the Mets in The Bronx, creating the need for extra arms anyway. “They’re guys that we’re definitely starting to have conversations that potentially could come into play in...
