As the MLB season is more than a month under way, trade speculation will heat up.
Many teams, that are surprising the baseball world with their records, will make a move knowing their play will not last forever.
MLB fans are always on the edge of their seat for trade speculations for their favorite team. These players can help a lot of teams, and their names will be rumored up until the last minute of the deadline.
Wandy Rodriguez has had his name come up in trade talks a lot in recent years, and this is the year he should get dealt from the Houston Astros.
The Astros are surprisingly not in the bottom of the NL Central right now. However, that will not last much longer. The team is in rebuilding mode and needs to keep getting more prospects.
Rodriguez is having a solid year with a 3-3 record to go with a 2.14 ERA. A lefty with a low ERA is bound to be a hot commodity for many teams.
Potential Suitors: New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Atlanta Braves
Kevin Youkilis may be on his way out of Boston very soon.
With the emergence of Will Middlebrooks and Youkilis being very injury prone, Youkilis may not have a spot in Boston much longer. The Red Sox need to see the future of Middlebrooks in the bigs, and they can't afford to have Youkilis hurt all the time.
To make matters worse, Youkilis wasn't playing his best ball this year. Youkilis was hitting a weak .219 in 18 games played with only two home runs. Still, he's had a nice career and teams could use his bat.
Potential Suitors: Chicago White Sox, San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers
Since joining the Chicago Cubs, Matt Garza has heard a lot of trade talk with his name.
Garza has some electric stuff that will attract plenty of teams. Garza is 2-1 with a 2.67 ERA in five starts.
Even more impressive is that opponents are only hitting .175 against Garza, and he has a .89 WHIP. If the Cubs will part ways with Garza, teams will be sure to call.
Potential Suitors: New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, Boston Red Sox
Jake Peavy finally looks healthy and is back to his old self.
Peavy has had health problems his whole career but has been stellar in 2012. He has a 4-1 record with a 1.89 ERA in seven games started. Peavy also has an unreal WHIP of .80.
If Peavy can stay healthy, a team in need of a starting pitcher is bound to ask about Peavy.
Potential Suitors: New Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston Red Sox
The Mets have been a pleasant surprise in the NL East so far.
The success won't last too long, and the Mets will have to make a move. David Wright is the face of the franchise, but if the Mets want to rebuild, he won't be the face of the franchise much longer.
Wright is playing absolutely great for the Mets this season. His slash line is .376/.475/.554 with a 1.030 OPS.
If Wright keeps playing like this and the Mets are willing to trade him, New York can get a great package for Wright.
Potential Suitors: Philadelphia Phillies, Cleveland Indians, Arizona Diamondbacks
