Hannah Foslien/Getty ImagesThe July 31 Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline is rapidly approaching Jake Lamb Jersey , and teams are positioning themselves to acquire some power bats and relief pitchers who may be on the trading block.The biggest hitter (former Baltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado) is now a Los Angeles Dodger, but teams are still scurrying to reload before the stretch run.Here's a look at where things stand regarding three notable names.Brian DozierAfter making the playoffs as an American League wild-card team last year, the Minnesota Twins have regressed in 2018, going 44-50 through the first half of the season.They are not completely out of the AL Central race, as the first-place Cleveland Indians sit 7.5 games ahead, but Fangraphslists Minnesota's playoff odds at just 2.4 percent.Barring a big win streak out of the All-Star break, it looks like the Twins may be sellers at the deadline.One player who could be on the move is second baseman Brian Dozier, as noted by Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports and The Athletic:Ken Rosenthal Ken_RosenthalAmong the players the #Brewers are expected to target now that they have lost Machado: #Twins 2B Brian Dozier. Team also will explore pitching upgrades as well.Dozier has had a down year, as he is hitting just .230 alongside a .738 OPS. Last year, the 31-year-old hit .271 with an .856 OPS.However, Dozier may be running into some bad luck. Per Fangraphs, his BABIP dropped from .300 in 2017 to .251 this year, although he's actually hitting the ball harder in 2018 (36.6 percent hard-hit contact rate vs. 34.1 percent in 2017). Also, his strikeout rate of 19.6 percent is around his career average of 19.5 percent.If the Milwaukee Brewers trade for him http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-greinke-jersey , they could be getting a slugger who is about to experience positive regression toward the mean. That could be a huge boon to the Brew Crew, who are fighting the Chicago Cubs for the NL Central crown and could use some more consistent play at second base. Zach BrittonWith Machado now a Dodger, the Orioles can turn their attention toward the rest of their fire sale.One player who should be on the move is O's reliever Zach Britton.Per Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com, the O's are ramping up trade talks regarding the southpaw:Brittany Ghiroli Britt_GhiroliWhen Machado is officially traded, Orioles could move quickly on Britton. Interest in him has picked up steam.Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports also provided some comments from Orioles general manager Dan Duquette on Britton:Roch Kubatko masnRochDuquette said clubs more interested now in Britton as hes regained velo. Teams have renewed their interest, #Orioles not as far down the road in the process. Os now can turn their attention to moving BrittonBritton was one of the best (if not the best) relievers in the game from 2014-2016, but injuries to his forearm and Achilles slowed him down in 2017 and 2018. However, Britton is back healthy and has looked good for the most part.Although his 3.68 ERA this season is a far cry from 2014-2016, when he had a 1.38 ERA and 120 saves, that 2018 figure is a bit inflated by a third of an inning in which he gave up four earned runs to the Atlanta Braves.That appearance was also Britton's fifth since coming off the 60-day disabled list with a ruptured Achilles tendon, so he may have been battling some rust. His last seven appearances are a better barometer of his current skill set, as he's allowed just three hits and three walks (no runs) during that span.Ultimately, Britton should be headed elsewhere sooner rather than later, and he should be a tremendous asset for a contending team down the stretch.Brad HandBritton isn't the only left-handed reliever on the market Jeff Mathis Jersey , as San Diego Padres closer Brad Hand could be on the move. The Padres have the third-worst record in baseball at 40-59, so they are clear sellers heading into the deadline.Jerry Crasnick of ESPN has more on where Hand could end up:Jerry Crasnick jcrasnickAdd the #Indians to list of teams with interest in #Padres closer Brad Hand. Hes signed for $6.5M and $7M the next two years, with a $10M club option for 2021. So he could be a nice hedge against Andrew Miller and Cody Allen leaving through free agency. Price very high, though.Hand has struck out 65 batters in 44.1 innings to go along with a 3.05 ERA in 41 appearances. It's clear why the Cleveland Indians would be interested in Hand, as the Tribe's once-invincible bullpen has faltered to the tune of a 5.28 ERA, which is the second-worst mark in baseball.Cleveland has a tremendous starting lineup and rotation, but the bullpen is the missing link toward another World Series run. Hand could certainly help right the reliever ship.However, there are two problems.First, the Indians (as expected) aren't the only team interested in Hand. Of note, the New York Yankees are in the mix, per Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Bruce Levine of 670 The Score reported that the Chicago Cubs could be involved as well.Second, per Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports, one executivenoted that teams would "absolutely have to kill it" in an offer for Hand. So unless any of those contenders are willing to trade away a decent haul, Hand could stay in San Diego. The Chicago White Sox will try to maintain their recent success when they open a three-game series against the Detroit Tigers on Monday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field.Chicago (55-82) has endured a difficult season but has played much better in the past few weeks. The White Sox are coming off a dominant 8-0 win over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday and have won seven of 10 Tyler Glasnow Jersey , 13 of 19 and 18 of 30.“The second half has just been a whole different team,” said Daniel Palka, a rookie outfielder who slugged his 20th home run of the season in the series finale against Boston. “Same guys, things are just clicking more consistently.Article continues below ...“We are good despite what the record is. We are playing our best right now, and it’s showing off with these series records.”Meanwhile, Detroit (55-82) comes to town sliding in the opposite direction. The Tigers have lost seven of their past nine but looked better Sunday with an 11-7 win over the New York Yankees.Nicholas Castellanos shined in the victory by going 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBIs. He leads the team with 20 homers.Tigers right-hander Michael Fulmer (3-10, 4.71 ERA) will aim for his first victory since June 14 when he takes the mound for his 22nd start. Fulmer is 0-5 with a 5.90 ERA in his past seven starts but is feeling healthy after a stint on the disabled list.“Just glad to be back,” Fulmer recently said to the Detroit Free Press. “Everything felt good (the last outing) — that’s the big thing. Mechanics still need some repetition, but for the most part, everything was a little better than it has been all year.”In seven career starts against the White Sox, Fulmer is 2-1 with a 3.38 ERA. He has walked 12 and fanned 28 in 42 2/3 innings.The White Sox will counter with right-hander Reynaldo Lopez (5-9, 4.51 ERA), who will make his 28th start of the season. The 24-year-old is coming off one of his best performances of the year after limiting the Yankees to one run and five hits in seven innings.Lopez is 1-1 with a 3.58 ERA in six career starts against the Tigers. He has walked 14 and struck out 21 in 37 2/3 innings.White Sox manager Rick Renteria said he was proud of the way his team has played as of late.“I think for all of us, the team Adam Frazier Jersey , myself, the whole organization, we should feel really good about how they’re going about doing their business,” Renteria said. “I think we’ve talked about hopefully having them settle in and get a feel of who they are and what they’re capable of doing. We’ve played two pretty strong offensive clubs (in New York and Boston).“The pitching, I still believe that on any given club, the pitching is the key to allowing you to have a chance to win. You get some timely hitting and or catch the ball, which you should, and minimize mistakes, you always give yourself a chance. Right now, our guys are doing a lot of those things.”
