While the New York Yankees are busy upgrading their roster, their rival Crossroads is preparing to launch a Part of its fortune.
The New York Mets have a handful of players who could help the contenders for the remainder of the season, but the prize has to be right.
Another player mentioned in the last few days on the trading market was a former Mets pitcher who squeezed his season in Cincinnati eht has.
Milwaukee is at the forefront of some debate as it seeks improvements to challenge the Chicago Cubs for the National League Central crown, while Philadelphia still needs to make some improvements.
Below you will find a summary of the latest trading activity that is whirling around Major League Baseball.
Mets Get Interest in Cabrera, Wheeler
The Mets declared themselves one of the top sellers when they sent Jeury's Familia to Oakland, and at least two more players could be sent out of the Big Apple before the non-waiver close on Tuesday.
According to Andy Martino of SNY, the teams talking to the Mets for Asdrubal Cabrera expect the shortstop to be over soon.
Fancreds Jon Heyman expanded in the market for the 32-year-old, which also includes Arizona, Atlanta, Milwaukee and Philadelphia:

Asdrubal Market: setbacks, brewery , philly, bravos. he had a terrible year under difficult circumstances
Cabrera beats 277 with 18 homers and 58 RBI for the fighting Mets, and he would be a welcome addition to any challenger who needs a midfielder.
The Brewers need an upgrade to either Second Base or Shortstop, making them an ideal trading partner for the Mets, while the other three teams mentioned by Heyman need to reorganize their Infielder to suit Cabrera.
Zack Wheeler could also move away from the Mets, as Martino reported, are interested in the Cubs, Reds, and Brewers for the pitcher.

Having recently taken over Cole Hamels, the Cubs did not need Wheeler as much as the Brewers who could use a starter after Brent Suter was on the disabled list.
With much interest in both Cabrera and Wheeler, the Mets should consider treating both to get a decent return on investment while not blowing up their lineup completely.
The Mets would keep Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard and bring in some assets that could help in the future.
From the perspective of the brewers, it would be a good idea to negotiate a package with Cabrera and Wheeler as this would improve their position in two places.
If they are able to make a deal for both players, the Brewers would not have to turn around to improve their chances of qualifying for the postseason.
Harvey may be on the move again
Matt Harvey was traded once this season when the Mets took him to Cincinnati in exchange for Devin Mesoraco.
Since joining the Reds, Harvey has compiled a record of 5-4 and an ERA of 4.50 in 13 starts.
The Brewers, who are currently investigating all sorts of businesses, are in ongoing talks with the Reds on the MLB Network's Harvey, Jon Morosi:

In addition to Milwaukee, a handful of teams have kept an eye on Harvey, with scouts from six other teams present for his last run. Jim Bowden of The Athletic:
Jim Bowden @ JimBowdenGM
Matt Harvey's last starting scouts from Boston, Cleveland, LA Dodgers, Phillies, Giants, Cardinals were present (of course, there were some, to see other players), also Yankees and Braves have shown interest. AVG FB up to 95 mph in the last 7 starts and GB rate from 40 to 50%
Receiving Harvey must be seen as a success for the Reds, who gave the 29-year-old the opportunity to rehabilitate his career.
The Reds will not bring Harvey any massive loot, as he may still be seen by some potential worshipers as damaged goods, but something is better than nothing.
If the Brewers think the Wheeler price is too high, they could continue their discussions with their NL Central team to find a replacement for Suter.
If Harvey continues to increase interest in Harvey over the next few days, the Reds may raise the price, but for now, a few prospects may be enough to let him go.
Gibson Emerging as a Prospectus
The Minnesota Twins could be the largest seller before the non-waiver close.
Infielders Brian Dozier and Eduardo Escobar were mentioned in trade talks during the last few weeks, while pitcher Kyle Gibson begins to generate more interest than Morosi noted:
Jon Morosi @ jonmorosi
Kyle Gibson's trading value continues to rise after last night's launch at Fenway. It's an option for #Brewer when ongoing conversations with #Twins go beyond Brian Dozier or Eduardo Escobar. @MLBNetwork @MLB
Looking in every direction for improvement, the Brewers talked to the twins about Dozier and Escobar, and Gibson could also be involved in those talks, as Morosi mentioned.
Gibson jumped onto the competition radar with a series of strong starts last month, including an eight-inning race against the Boston Red Sox on Thursday. In his five July debuts Gibson left 12 earned runs in 33.1 innings, and in three of these starts, he has taken at least seven innings.

If the Brewers want to be brave, they could suggest a monster deal to the twins to bring in Dozier, Escobar, and Gibson, but that would require a cleanup of their farm system.
However, the Brewers may not be the only contender for the Minnesota Trio, which puts the Twins in an ideal position by Tuesday.
The more probable scenario for a Brewers Twins deal shows that one of the three players is being sent to Milwaukee while the twins are trying to get more prospects from other teams through the others in the trading market.
