Who is most likely to get traded & what current set up men are in line to step into the closer role?
I think Gregg has a pretty decent chance of moving. The Cubs have shown that they're willing to work to move guys, he's been good but not great in his career but doing well now, but he isn't a guy that they'll get picks from if they keep him. I really like Blake Parker to fill in if he's moved.
How about Chris Perez? Is he a sure thing to be traded & is Pestano the new closer in waiting?
Are the Indians sellers? Unless they hit a cold streak I figured they'd try to make a run. If they did trade Perez today I'd almost think Cody Allen would have the first crack at closing. If Pestano has a good few outtings he could earn his closer in waiting tag back.
How about Houston? How likely is Veras to be traded & who's the go to guy next?
Houston doesn't really have anybody in the pipe with any history of success that screams closer in waiting. Even though they need to rebuild, I almost hope that the complete lack of alternative to Veras keeps them from trading him. They have been terrible but they don't want to continue getting worse to where they enter into all-time worst seasons type of range over the next year or so.
