Chicago Cubs catcher, Victor Caratini, has been scratched from tonight’s lineup in AAA Iowa per Tommy Birch.
The Cubs have been in talks with the Oakland Athletics for Blake Treinen. Blake has posted a a 0.89 ERA in 40.2 innings pitched for the A’s this season. If this deal was to happen we’d see Caratini and another minor leaguer head to Oakland.
Update- 7:28PM: It is said that trade talks are centered around Orioles reliever, Zach Britton. Zach has struggled so far this season, but he is coming off injury.
Update: 7:45PM: it is now being said by Tommy Birch that tonight’s scratch does not involve a trade. We are still not 100% positive, so stay with us.
