As spring training enters its second half, the MLB hot stove has done anything but cool down. Position battles are still putting players on the trading block, and when the dust settles, some more deals could be made.
This past week, the Yankees emerged as a team that could soon make a trade when veteran Andy Pettitte chose to come out of retirement, thus making Freddy Garcia and/or Phil Hughes expendable in the near future. According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, Garcia seems more likely to be dealt due to his salary.
The Atlanta Braves have a similar controversy, as they have two of baseball's top pitching prospects in Julio Teheran and Randall Delgado, but they also have Jair Jurrjens. Given the ceilings of the two younger options, Jurrjens could be expendable, and team management actually explored deals for him during the winter.
That said, let's have a look at each position and the players there who could be on the block.
