Joakim Soria-once known as a very dominant reliever, he's been having a slow start in his new 3 year contract that he signed with the Royals this past offseason. Soria is still owed about 19 million through 2018 which makes me doubtful that he will be picked up, unless that team or the Royals will be willing to eat up some of the money on his contract. Some potential fits for Soria would be the Red Sox, the Orioles or the Dodgers. All of these teams missed out on Chapman and Miller at the deadline and Soria would be a good late inning fit for them.
Kurt Suzuki- Suzuki would deff be a good pickup for anyone right now needing a DH or Catcher. Kurt would only be a late season rental and an affordable one as he's only owed about 2 million for the rest of the season. He's batting .281 on the season with 6 home runs in 81 games. Great fit for Suzuki right now is the Indians, they're 6 games up in their division and a missing piece is needed at Catcher, Suzuki is that piece.
Brian McCann- out of everyone that has cleared waivers this person is the least likely get traded. The Yankees have been back and forth between being 6.5 to 3.5 games out of the wild card race but in reality their season is done. As the Yankees have resorted to rebuilding their team through their farm system it would make sense to get rid of McCann who is turning 33 next February and owed more then 30 million through 2018. It now looks that Gary Sanchez will be the new star behind the plate as he's been off to a hot start since being called up to the big leagues, batting .360 with 5 homers and 11 RBIS in 13 games. Since I don't see McCann going anywhere it makes sense for the Yankees to keep McCann right now and let him mentor Sanchez at Least for the rest of the season.
