Sources: Torres unlikely to be traded

Teams are obviously interested in Torres but the Pirates are rumored to be asking for to much at this moment. There have also been some rumblings, teams are concerned about his health but if the Pirates lower their demands i envision Torres being traded.

The Pirates are looking for a big return for Damaso Marte. Teams like the Red Sox are balking at their demands but Littlefield is waiting for a team like the Red Sox or Phillies to up their offers as the deadline approaches. Martes’ value may never be higher but financially speaking the Pirates are in a win-win situation considering Marte will make 450,000 next season.

Shaun Chacon is likely to be traded………
