     rotation ahead of the MLB non-waiver trade deadline on July 31.According to Jon Paul Morosi of MLB.com Austin Romine Jersey , "the Braves and [Toronto] Blue Jayshave spoken about a possible [Marcus] Stroman trade, sources said Thursday, although there's no evidence of progress in those negotiations."Atlanta isn't the only team that has inquired about Stroman, according to Jon Heyman of Fancred:Jon Heyman JonHeymanseveral teams have checked in on Marcus Stroman. but strong belief is, with control to go http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , jays will hold onto him.Stroman, 27, is having his worst season as a pro, delivering a 3-7 record, 5.42 ERA Bernie Williams Jersey , 1.45 WHIP and 59 strikeouts in 73 innings. He's alsodealt withbothshoulder inflammation and shoulder fatigue over the past year.But he's still under contract with the Blue Jays through the 2020 season.So why deal him, especially given the quality he's flashed in his career?Morosi cited two factors: "This is a seller's market for starting pitchers, due to the low supply of high-end trade candidates; and the contentiousness of negotiations over Stroman's 2018 contract (which led to a salary arbitration hearing) suggests the sides may not reach a long-term deal in the near future."For an Atlanta team trailing the Philadelphia Phillies by just 1.5 games in the NL East and fighting for a playoff berth this season, adding a player like Stroman and throwing another quality arm into the rotation would make sense.One factor the Braves are surely monitoring: In this past three starts, Stroman has given up just five earned runs in 19 innings C.C. Sabathia Jersey , striking out 16. And since his return from shoulder fatigue, he's given up more than three earned runs just once in six starts.If Stroman is wheeling and dealing once more, he could be a very nice addition in Atlanta. A look at what’s happening around baseball Sunday:MAX MATCHUPNationals ace Max Scherzer (15-5, 2.28 ERA) will try to become the first 16-game winner in the majors when he starts the Sunday night game at Wrigley Field. Owner of three Cy Young Awards, he also leads the majors in strikeouts this year with 216 in 161 2/3 innings. Cole Hamels starts for the Cubs — he’s allowed just one earned run in 11 innings during the first two starts since being acquired from Texas.SALE SETRed Sox ace Chris Sale returns from a two-week stint on the disabled list because of shoulder inflammation. Manager Alex Cora said the lefty could throw 100 pitches if he’s not too rusty. Sale (11-4) leads the AL with a 2.04 ERA and will try to pitch Boston to a four-game sweep of the Orioles at Camden Yards.WELCOME BACKMets third baseman David Wright is set to play in a minor league game http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , more than two years since the oft-injured team captain last appeared in the majors. The 35-year-old Wright has been beset by back, neck and shoulder trouble. He’s scheduled to start a rehab assignment by playing five innings in the field for Class A St. Lucie. His last game in the bigs was May 27, 2016 — he had brief stint in the minors last August before being shut down.WAITINGThe Rockies will see how third baseman Nolan Arenado is feeling, a day after he was out of the starting lineup at Coors Field against the Dodgers. The All-Star third baseman left Friday night’s game with a strained right shoulder. Arenado is hitting .307 with 29 home runs and 82 RBIs, and Colorado is hoping he can avoid a trip to the disabled list.MISS HIMThe AL Central-leading Indians have put slugger Edwin Encarnacion on the disabled list because of swelling in his left biceps. The cleanup man has struggled since being hit on the right hand by Yankees reliever Chad Green before the All-Star break.SWEET SWINGBlue Jays prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has hit four home runs in the last four games for Triple-A Buffalo. The 19-year-old son of a Hall of Famer is batting a combined .406 with 18 home runs at four levels of the minor leagues. The Bisons host the Toledo Mud Hens to wrap up the weekend.
