  Premier League transfer news live, today! Latest updates on the summer window We are set for a very busy summer of transfer activity, as the latest transfer news keeps flooding in and plenty of big names are expected to be on the move in the coming months. Your browser does not support this video [ VIDEO: Premier League analysis ] The 2022 summer transfer window opens on June 10 and closes at 6pm ET on September 1. With Erling Haaland already signing for Manchester City, Kylian Mbappe staying at PSG (for now), plus Sadio Mane leaving Liverpool — and plenty of other superstars in demand and contemplating moves — this feels like it will be a summer like no other.

The San Francisco Giants are currently out of a playoff spot and may be poised to trade a key starter as the MLB trade deadline approaches.

The New York Post’s Jon Heyman reported on Saturday that the Giants are listening to trade proposals for some of their veteran players, including All-Star pitcher Carlos Rodon.

“#SFGiants also now listening on their veterans,” Heyman tweeted. “Carlos Rodon and Joc Pederson are among obvious candidates if they do sell. Rodon has an opt out and Pederson is free after the year.”

In addition to Rodon, Heyman says the Giants are open to trading Joc Pederson. Another team reportedly has interest in Joc.

The Giants’ decision to sell may not come as much of a surprise. Entering Saturday, the team was 49-51 and four games back of the Philadelphia Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals for the third and final National League Wild Card spot. San Francisco has especially struggled in July, winning just nine of their 26 games so far. The Giants began the month with a five-game losing streak, and bested that mark with a seven-game skid from July 21 to July 27.

With Luis Castillo off the board as of Friday, Rodon would likely be one of the more sought-after starters on the trade market. The 29-year-old has a 3.18 ERA with 148 strikeouts to 39 walks in 116 innings. Rodon signed a two-year deal with the Giants this past offseason, but can opt out after this year.

Chiefs cut former first-round pick Deandre Baker .
The soon-to-be-25-year-old will surely get another opportunity, as teams are always on the lookout for CB depth (especially when that depth comes with a first-round pedigree).A first-round pick of the Giants in 2019, Baker played in all 16 games in his rookie season, including 15 starts. He did not perform particularly well, yielding a 116.2 passer rating and earning a poor 48.4 overall grade from Pro Football Focus, but as a Day 1 selection, Baker was in line to get another extended look in 2020 for a rebuilding New York outfit.
