As Tuesday's trade deadline looms closer , it seems like many of the biggest deals have already been made.It started the day after the All-Star Game when the Baltimore Orioles traded superstar Manny Machado to the Los Angeles Dodgers, and last year's National League champions are hoping Machado can lead them to the World Series and help them to win it a year after losing to the Houston Astros in the seventh game.Other big moves saw the New York Yankees acquire left-handed pitcher J.A. Happ from the Toronto Blue Jays and reliever Zach Britton from the Orioles. The Milwaukee Brewers, who are chasing the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central, acquired Mike Moustakas from the Kansas City Royals, while the Cubs picked up starting pitcher Cole Hamels from the Texas Rangers.There are more deals to be made, and one of the teams that is starting to receive a lot of calls from contenders is the Chicago White Sox. Many thought the rebuilding White Sox would be in a sell mode and players like Jose Abreu and Avisail Garcia could be available.However, long-time MLB insider Peter Gammons of The Athletic reported that the Sox aregetting multiple callson hard-throwing starter Carlos Rodon.While Rodon has not fully developed into the star pitcher the White Sox were expecting when they selected him with the No. 3 pick in the 2014 Draft, he reaches 98 miles per hour on the radar gun and has mixed in some excellent performances with mediocre ones.The 25-year-old Rodon is in his fourth year with the White Sox, and this season he has a 3-3 record, a 3.24 earned-run average and a1.063 WHIP.Rodon would not be eligible to file for free agency until 2022, so it would probably take a major deal for the White Sox to part company with the starting pitcher.Chris Archer of the Rays has drawn quite a bit of interest.Gail Burton/Associated PressChris Archer of the Tampa Bay Rays is another pitcher who has been mentioned prominently as the trade deadline nears.The San Diego Padres, who are not in contention for a playoff spot, are one of the teams that have been talking to the Rays about Archer.The Padres clearly want the right-handed pitcher, but they are only willing to go so far to get him. They have told the Rays that high-level prospect shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. is not available in a trade and neither is left-handed pitcher MacKenzie Gore Willie McGee Jersey , according toMLB Network insider Jon Morosi.The Padres are rich with prospects, including catcher-outfielder Francisco Mejia and infielder Jose Urias. Morosi's tweet intimated that San Diego's other top prospects besides Tatis and Gore would be available in a potential trade.The Yankees and Dodgers are also interested in Archer,according to Ken Rosenthalof The Athletic.The 29-year-old Archer has a 3-5 record with a 4.31 ERA and 102 strikeouts in 96 innings.While the Orioles have already traded Machado and Britton, they may not be done. Outfielder Adam Jones may be the next player to leave Charm City.According toESPN reporter Jerry Crasnick, the Cleveland Indians and Philadelphia Phillies may both be at the head of the list.The Indians are in control of the AL Central, but they will almost certainly have to compete with the Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox and Yankees if they are going to win the pennant and get a chance to play in the World Series.The Phillies are involved in a tough fight with the Atlanta Braves for the NL East title. The presence of Jones could help the former gain an edge in that battle.Jones is a five-time All-Star, and he has a .285/.312/.434 slash line this season with 11 home runs and 44 runs batted in. Brian Snitker (ATL): 1-1Bud Black (COL): 3-1Craig Counsell (MIL): 3-1Bud Black and Craig Counsell will garner attention for shepherding the Colorado Rockies and Milwaukee Brewers into the postseason.But NL MOY honors will likely go to the Atlanta Braves' Brian Snitker, in keeping with the overachieving theme.The Braves are blessed with bushels of young talent but were supposed to be a year or more away from serious contention.Instead, they won the NL East outright over the favored Washington Nationals and fellow upstart Philadelphia Phillies. In his second full season at the helm, Snitker should get his due credit.AL Rookie of the Year3 of 8Masterpress/Getty ImagesShohei Ohtani (LAA): 1-1Miguel Andujar (NYY): 2-1Gleyber Torres (NYY): 10-1Shohei Ohtani's first MLB campaign has been a thrilling roller coaster. After a rough spring, he burst into the regular season as a fully formed two-way star.A balky elbow that will require Tommy John surgery derailed his pitching career, but he stuck around as a hitter and finished with 22 home runs and a .925 OPS to go along with a 3.31 ERA and 63 strikeouts in 51.2 innings.Durability concerns aside, Ohtani is too unique of a talent to not be the front-runner for AL Rookie of the Year honors.His chief competition comes from a pair of Yankees infielders: Miguel Andujar (.297 AVG Red Schoendienst Jersey , .855 OPS, 27 HR) and Gleyber Torres (.271 AVG, .820 OPS, 24 HR). They'll grab most of the non-Ohtani vote鈥攅specially Andujar鈥攂ut the generational Japanese sensation should snag this prize.NL Rookie of the Year4 of 8Lynne Sladky/Associated PressRonald Acuna Jr. (ATL): 1-1Juan Soto (WAS): 3-1Harrison Bader (STL): 12-1Jack Flaherty (STL): 12-1As mentioned, the Braves have blossomed ahead of schedule and won the NL East behind a burgeoning young core.That core is exemplified by outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. The 20-year-old owns a .293/.366/.552 slash line with 26 home runs and 16 stolen bases, and he could garner stray MVP votes.He has competition from 19-year-old Nationals rookie Juan Soto (.292/.406/.517, 22 HR). But the fact that Acuna's Braves are charging into October while Soto's Nats stay home should tip the scales.Oh, and a cap tip to the St. Louis Cardinals' duo of outfielder Harrison Bader and right-hander Jack Flaherty, who warrant mention but haven't matched the hype of Soto or Acuna.AL Cy Young Award5 of 8Mike Ehrmann/Getty ImagesBlake Snell (TBR): 3-2Justin Verlander (HOU): 4-1Corey Kluber (CLE): 4-1Chris Sale (BOS): 4-1Blake Snell paces the AL with a 1.89 ERA. He's struck out 221 in 180.2 innings and owns a 21-5 record, if that's worth anything these days. He's the poster boy for the shockingly good underdog Rays.The Tampa Bay southpaw has competition from the Astros' Justin Verlander (2.52 ERA, 214 IP, 290 SO), the Red Sox's Chris Sale (2.11 ERA, 158 IP Enos Slaughter Jersey , 237 SO) and the Cleveland Indians' Corey Kluber (2.89 ERA, 215 IP, 222 SO).That's a trio of decorated studs with impressive track records and multiple Cy Youngs between them.They could be measured against their past excellence, however, whereasSnell has that intoxicating new-ace smell.NL Cy Young Award6 of 8Scott Taetsch/Getty ImagesJacob deGrom (NYM): 1-1Max Scherzer (WAS): 3-2Aaron Nola (PHI): 9-1The Senior Circuit Cy Young chase features three NL East arms whose clubs whiffed on the postseason.There's New York Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom, who led both leagues with a 1.70 ERA while striking out 269 in 217 innings.There's three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer, who led baseball with 330 strikeouts and posted a 2.53 ERA for the Nationals.Lagging behind that pair but still worth mentioning: Philadelphia Phillies righty Aaron Nola (2.34 ERA, 224 SO, 212.1 IP).DeGrom has the edge for winning the ERA crown and amassing the highestWAR total, according to FanGraphs' measure (8.8 to Scherzer's 7.2). But don't be shocked if Mad Max adds another piece of hardware to his trophy case.AL MVP7 of 8Charles Krupa/Associated PressMookie Betts (BOS): 3-2J.D. Martinez (BOS): 3-1Francisco Lindor (CLE): 8-1Jose Ramirez (CLE): 8-1Mike Trout (LAA): 8-1The AL MVP race comes down to a pair of Red Sox.Mookie Betts led both leagues with a .346 average, clubbed 32 home runs and paced baseball with 10.2 WAR.His teammate J.D. Martinez outdistanced the field with 130 RBI, swatted 43 home runs and hit .330.Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez (.272 AVG, 39 HR, 34 SB) belongs in the conversation. You could make a case for Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor (.277 AVG , 38 HR, 25 SB). And oh, by the way, Mike Trout did Mike Trout things (.312 AVG, 39 HR, 24 SB) for the also-ran Angels.All things considered, Betts' batting title and the fact that he posted 20 defensive runs saved in right field while Martinez was primarily a designated hitter should tip the scales.NL MVP8 of 8Aaron Gash/Associated PressChristian Yelich (MIL): 1-1Javier Baez (CHC): 3-1Nolan Arenado (COL): 3-1Christian Yelich's quest for the Triple Crown fell just short after Game 163.After the tiebreaker against the Cubs, the Brewers outfielderled the NL with a .326 average. He hit 36 home runs, one behind the Rockies' Nolan Arenado. And he tallied 110 RBI, one fewer than the Cubs' Javier Baez.Not coincidentally, Baez and Arenado are vying for NL MVP honors.For now, Yelich has the edge after rising from star to superstar, guiding his team to a division title and twice hitting for the cycle in 2018.
