Player Notes
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Giants have agreed to a deal with the Reds for Mike Leake.

Advice: The Reds will receive minor leaguers Keury Mella and Adam Duvall in return. The Giants get the rotation help that they so desperately coveted without having to sacrifice their entire future. It's also a huge win for Mike Leake, who gets to pitch in his home state while moving from one of the top offensive parks in the league to a pitcher's paradise in San Francisco.

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Reds are in active discussions with the Reds about acquiring right-hander Mike Leake.

Advice: The Giants have been mentioned as possible suitors for nearly every starting pitcher on the market thus far, they simply haven't had the necessary pieces to land any of the top options. They could have enough to get Leake though, and he would certainly help to add stability to the back of their rotation as they attempt to defend their World Series title.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Mike Leake is one of the starters the Blue Jays are considering.

Advice: Rosenthal says that the Jays' targets are "all at similar talent levels," which suggests that they aren't in the market for an ace if they're considering Leake. Toronto is "looking for the best acquisition cost," Rosenthal adds. Leake certainly didn't hurt his trade value with eight shutout innings against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Mike Leake threw eight shutout innings in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

Advice: In what was possibly his last start as a member of the Reds, Leake showed off for potential suitors. The right-hander scattered four hits and a walk over eight innings, striking out three. It was his fourth straight start allowing zero or one run, improving to 9-5 with a 3.56 ERA and 1.15 WHIP on the year. In the event Leake survives the trade deadline as a member of the Reds, he'll take on the Pirates on Sunday.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Tigers have Reds right-hander Mike Leake on their radar.

Advice: The Tigers are three games under .500 at 48-51, but they are just 4 1/2 games out of the Wild Card and haven't given up on the possibility of contention. Leake would certainly help their rotation. The 27-year-old owns a 3.78 ERA over 20 starts this season and has been on a roll of late. The impending free agent figures to draw a lot of interest.

Mike Leake tossed a superb game in Wednesday's 9-1 win over the Cubs, scattering four hits and yielding just one run over eight innings.

Advice: Only the possibly-immortal Kyle Schwarber managed to put a dent in Leake's line, as the rookie's RBI single in the third would be the lone run-scoring hit allowed by the pitcher. Leake struck out six without walking a batter and has been on an absolute roll as of late. In his last 21 innings, he's given up just two runs. With the Reds taking on water at 42-50, he's a prime candidate for trade and his 3.78 ERA and 1.18 WHIP are likely to draw some interest from contending teams. He'll try to make it four straight dominant starts when he takes to the road against the Cardinals in his next scheduled start.
