The Milwaukee Brewersand free-agent third baseman Mike Moustakas reportedly agreed to a one-year deal Sunday.Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported the news Francisco Cervelli Jersey , noting the contract is pending a physical. Bob Nightengale ofUSA Todayreported the deal is worth $10 million.This comes after Jon Heyman of MLB Network noted the Los Angeles Angels, as well as "possibly" the San Diego Padres and Philadelphia Phillies, were interested in him before his decision to return to the reigning National League Central champions.Moustakas, 30, split the 2018 season with the Kansas City Royals and Brewers. He hit .251/.315/.459 with 28 home runs and 95 runs batted in, putting up hissecond straight2-plus-WAR season, per FanGraphs.A two-time All-Star, Moustakas played 934 of his first 988 MLB games with the Royals. He was an instrumental piece of the team that led Kansas City to its first World Series title since 1985 but has found a tepid market each of the last two offseasons.After lingering unsigned into March last year, Moustakas re-signed with the Royals on a one-year, $6.5 million deal. Kansas City shipped him off to Milwaukee at the deadline as the Brewers searched for help in the postseason."Everything happens for a reason," Moustakastold reporters. "I tore my knee up a couple of years ago, and I got to be there when my daughter was born. (Last) offseason, I got to see my son born. I was able to sign back with Kansas City; I got traded (to Milwaukee) and (went to) the postseason again."After never hitting more than 22 home runs in a season from 2011-2016, Moustakas has hit 66 over the last two years. His increased power has been a major factor in keeping him effective http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authent...ell-jersey , and a second straight year of solid numbers likely made Milwaukeemore comfortable with the commitment. The Giants didn't sell at the trade deadline, but they didn't buy either, and with a 55-54 record, they sit five games back in fourth place in the NL West standings. In other words, it's hard to see them climbing back into the playoff picture between now and Aug. 31.As an upcoming free agent with a $14.75 million salary, Andrew McCutchen looks like a prime candidate to be dumped by a Giants team that is up against the luxury tax threshold.According to Jon Paul Morosi of MLB.com, the New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies and Cleveland Indians all showed some level of interest in the veteran outfielder leading up to the deadline.The Indians addressed their outfield need by acquiring Leonys Martin from the Detroit Tigers, but Yankees and Phillies could still be potential fits.The 31-year-old McCutchen is hitting .258/.353/.413 for a 109 OPS+ with 24 doubles, 11 home runs and 44 RBI. Defensive metrics have also been much kinder to his work in right field, compared to his struggles in center field the past few seasons.SP Matt Harvey, Cincinnati RedsJohn Minchillo/Associated PressIt came as something of a surprise that Matt Harvey was not traded ahead of the non-waiver deadline.The rebuilding Reds picked him up in a no-risk trade with the Mets that sent expensive backup catcher Devin Mesoraco out of town, and little was expected from the former All-Star when he joined the team sporting a 7.00 ERA.However, he's gone 5-4 with a 4.44 ERA http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authent...ell-jersey , 1.19 WHIP and 56 strikeouts in 73 innings over 14 starts since joining the Reds, and in a thin market for starting pitching, more than a few teams were interested, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.Cincinnati general manager Dick Williams explained the team's position to reporters after the deadline passed and Harvey stayed put:"He's a free agent at the end of the year. We understand that and are open to moving him if the appropriate deal comes along. We said all along, you can't execute a good trade if you put yourself in a position of feeling like you have to have one done by the end of the day. We set, what we thought, were appropriate parameters and we held to it. In the interim, he is very much bringing positive contributions to our team."It sounds like they're happy to have him but more than open to trading him, so a deal could yet be made between now and his first foray into free agency.3B Josh Donaldson, Toronto Blue JaysDerik Hamilton/Associated PressAn injury-plagued season from former AL MVP Josh Donaldson has cost the Blue Jays what would have been one of the most valuable trade chips on the market.The free-agent-to-be has been sidelined since May 28 with a left calf injury, but he's expected to return at some point in August.Will he have enough time to prove to a contender that he's capable of making an impact?His $23 million salary and sketchy health situation make him a safe bet to clear waivers, so it will come down to whether the Blue Jays get an offer that's more attractive than the draft pick compensation that would come with extending him a qualifying offer at the onset of the upcoming offseason.The 32-year-old is undoubtedly the wild card of the waiver-trade period.Other Waiver Trade Candidates:OF Jose Bautista (NYM), 3B Adrian Beltre (TEX), RP Jerry Blevins (NYM) Corey Dickerson Jersey , C A.J.
