PITTSBURGH (AP) — This trade was too good for Joey Votto to turn down.The Cincinnati Reds star first baseman spotted a fan sitting along the first base line Monday at PNC Park wearing a T-shirt that read “Votto for President.” It was from a Nike promotional campaign in 2012 and Votto hadn’t kept any of the shirts.Votto got the shirt Adam Wainwright Jersey , but wound up with little else, shut down by Trevor Williams and the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1.In the middle of the fourth inning, Votto walked over to the fan and asked for the shirt, offering an autographed jersey in return. The man agreed and the suddenly bare-chested fan and Votto exchanged first bumps along with Labor Day gifts.“I was trying to find (the T-shirt) for a while and I was excited to see if I could trade a jersey for a shirt and he obliged,” Votto said.“He was willing to take his shirt off in the middle of the stands and thanks to him for being willing to do that,” he said.That was the highlight of the day for Votto, who went 1 for 4 and grounded into a double play as the Reds lost for the ninth time in 12 games.Trevor Williams (12-9) continued his stretch of strong starts by pitching 6 2/3 scoreless innings. He allowed five hits while striking out four and walking one.Williams improved to 6-2 with a 0.66 ERA in his last nine starts, giving up four runs in 54 2/3 innings. It was his ninth outing of at least five innings without allowing a run this season.“It’s trusting my stuff and being able to put the fastball where I want to put it,” Williams said. “We go into every start knowing the fastball command is going to be there and everything comes off that. It’s fun to throw the ball to all four quadrants of the strike zone.”Adam Frazier had career high-tying four hits, including a solo home run off Matt Harvey (6-8) in the first and a two-run single in the seventh that stretched the Pirates’ lead to 5-0. Frazier also had a double and three RBIs.Pittsburgh’s Gregory Polanco and Cincinnati’s Scooter Gennett homered and had two hits each.Polanco hit a two-run shot in the sixth inning that made it 3-0.Gennett, the NL batting leader with a .320 average, broke up the Pirates’ shutout bid with a solo drive off Kyle Crick in the eighth. Gennett also doubled in the first inning, but Williams worked out of a second-and-third jam with one out by striking Eugenio Suarez and getting Scott Schebler to fly out.“He’s kind of like the guy who can get you a stolen base when you need a stolen base,” Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said of Williams. “He had four strikeouts today Michael Wacha Jersey , but he can get you a punchout when you need a punchout.”Harvey surrendered three runs and seven hits in six innings with three strikeouts and no walks.“It was one of those (starts) where you look back and the numbers obviously don’t go with how the game went but two pitches definitely cost me,” Harvey said.TRAINER’S ROOMPirates: C Elias Diaz (strained right hamstring) missed his third straight game.TRAHAN DEBUTReds SS Blake Trahan was 1 for 3 in his major league debut, hitting a single off Williams in the seventh inning. He was promoted from Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.UP NEXTReds: LHP Cody Reed (0-1, 3.26 ERA) will make his third start and 13th relief appearance of the season Tuesday night after limiting Milwaukee to one run in 4 2/3 innings in his last outing.Pirates: RHP Joe Musgrove (5-8, 3.80 ERA) is 1-4 in his last six starts despite a 3.65 ERA. The MLB postseason is just getting started, but already the rumor mill is churning ahead of another busy offseason.This year's crop of free agents has been among the most anticipated in recent memory, with young superstars Bryce Harper and Manny Machado set to pursue record deals and a wealth of talent behind them in a deep market.Rumors and speculation will really start to fly once the World Series concludes, but already there are some interesting tidbits starting to trickle out.Ahead is a look at some of the latest rumors from around the league.Nationals Front Office to Meet with Scott Boras to Talk Bryce HarperBryce HarperPatrick Smith/Getty ImagesMaybe Bryce Harper's time with the Washington Nationals isn't finished just yet.Despite what appeared to be a goodbye message on Instagram following his final home game, the Nationals are still in the mix to re-sign their homegrown superstar.In fact, the front office might already be getting the ball rolling on a potential new deal."Two sources said over the weekend the front office, led by ownership, was making plans to meet with Harper and agent Scott Boras in Las Vegas before he hits the open market, though a third source said no meetings have been scheduled at this point," wrote Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports.Zuckerman went on to list the Chicago Cubs http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-ozzie-smith-jersey , Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees as likely suitors for Harper, while adding the San Francisco Giants, Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers, Arizona Diamondbacks and Atlanta Braves as others to watch.Given what we know about Boras and the type of money that will be in play here, it's unlikely that Harper is going to rush to make a decision.Still, it's noteworthy that the Nationals appear to be serious contenders to bring him back.Prediction:The meeting is just for both sides to touch base, and nothing will be decided until much later in the offseason.Andrew McCutchen More Than Just a Rental for the Yankees?Andrew McCutchenJim McIsaac/Getty ImagesThe Yankees acquired Andrew McCutchen in August due in large part to Aaron Judge being on the shelf with an injury.However, it's not out of the question to think the two sides could turn this into more than just a two-month pitstop."Andrew McCutchen is said to have loved his time around the Yankees, so perhaps they would consider bringing him back," wrote Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports.The Yankees hold a $12.5 million option on Brett Gardner that can be bought out for $2 million, and Heyman wrote that they will "surely turn down" the option.A healthy Clint Frazier would be in the mix for outfield playing time, but bringing back McCutchen to provide a veteran presence and top-of-the-order bat makes sense if the years and price is right.Prediction:McCutchen tests the waters, but eventually lands back with the Yankees on a one-year deal with a mutual option for 2020.Derek Dietrich to be Non-Tendered?Rich Schultz/Getty ImagesAccording to Barry Jackson of theMiami Herald Albert Pujols Jersey ,it appears "highly questionable" that the Miami Marlins will tender a contract to versatile veteran Derek Dietrich.That comes as something of a surprise given his strong production this past season.The 29-year-old posted a 112 OPS+ with 26 doubles, 16 home runs and 45 RBI in 551 plate appearances, and he's seen at least semi-regular time at first base, second base, third base and at both corner outfield spots over the past few seasons.He made just $2.9 million this season and will earn a slight raise in arbitration, and with team control through 2020, he looks more like an asset than a player to be cut loose.His defensive flexibility and reasonable price tag should give him plenty of suitors if he does hit the open market, as he'll likely come cheaper than guys like Asdrubal Cabrera and Eduardo Escobar who could be targeted for a similar role.Prediction:Dietrich is in fact tendered a contract, as even the cost-cutting Marlins see the value in his versatility.All stats courtesy of Baseball Reference and FanGraphs, unless otherwise noted.
