The trade deadline in Major League Baseball is long gone. However, that doesn't mean the trades have ceased just yet.

The New York Yankees just acquired Andrew McCutchen from the San Francisco Giants on Thursday night. Now, two more notable MLB players are likely on the move in the coming hours.

According to MLB insider Bob Nightengale, the Toronto Blue Jays are expected to part ways with Josh Donaldson and Curtis Granderson via trade. Those trades are expected to be completed in the next few hours.

Here's the new from Nightengale.

Granderson is batting .243 on the seasons with 11 home runs and 35 RBIs.

Donaldson hasn't played for the Blue Jays since the end of May when he was placed on the Disabled List. He's been battling several injuries and is scheduled to play a rehab stint with the Blue Jays' High-A affiliate in Dunedin.

Both Donaldson and Granderson are three-time All-Stars.
