Just In; Ryan Pressly, a two-time All-Star reliever, allegedly could waive his no-trade clause: Five logical landing locations, including the Orioles, Cubs, and Yankees.

Two-time All-Star Ryan Pressly’s current contract has a no-trade clause, but according to a new source, he is likely to waive it, implying that a highly talented reliever who can be both a high-level closer and a setup man could be traded soon.


Despite posting rock-solid numbers in 2022 and 2023 and posting 30 or more saves in both seasons, the Houston Astros made the bold but understandable decision to sign the top closer in free agency this offseason, Josh Hader. Unfortunately, the superstar reliever and the team have disappointed in 2024.


The Astros are five games under.500 and in third place in the American League West entering today’s MLB games. They’ve won six consecutive, and there’s hope that this is the start of a comeback to their winning ways. However, if this is just a fluke, many in baseball feel Houston will sell before the July 30 trade deadline.


Ryan Pressly, a 13-year veteran, is an under-the-radar star who could attract major interest. The 35-year-old has shown to be a dependable closer and setup man in critical games, and many competing teams could use someone like him. Earlier this week, New York Post MLB insider Jon Heyman stated that many believe he will seriously “consider waiving his full no-trade for the right team/role.”


With that in mind, here are five clubs that will almost certainly call to inquire about Ryan Pressly’s asking price in the coming weeks.
