Here is the “Daily Roundup,” Friars fans:

  • Jon Heyman of CBS Sports recently tweeted that relief pitcher Luke Gregerson has garnered a lot of interest around the league as the trade deadline approaches.  If teams are actively trying to trade for the inconsistent reliever and are willing to give up talented prospects to do so, then I hope that Josh Byrnes & Co. pull the trigger.  As inconsistent as Gregerson has pitched this year, I would assume that the Friars’ brass would be smart enough to unload him so younger relievers can try to prove themselves over the season’s final two months.
