Pirates get: Ryan McMahon(IF)

Rockies get: Juan Nicasio

Might be a little steep but given the lack of arms available at the deadline the price may be high

Pirates get: Ryan Mountcastle(SS) and Keegan Akin(LHP)

Orioles get: Juan Nicasio

Both teams need bullpen help in order to stay competitive in the long run

"Lack of arms available"

If they have a heart beat and play for San Diego, they'll be available. Teams won't be overpaying for mediocre upgrades this summer.

Nicasio mediocre?

Nicasio isn't mediocre. Under a .230 BAA induces a lot of ground balls. And has given up zero homeruns.

His FIP is actually lower than his ERA which means you could argue he has been slightly unlucky.

His xFIP stays relatively the same, yet gives up no home runs.
His BABIP goes down, but so does his K/ 9.

If anything, you could argue Nicasio has been unbelievably lucky this season.

Baltimore wouldn't give either guy for both players in that deal.
