The MLB non-waiver trade deadline is fast approaching, and by now, teams are working on their strategies to best prepare themselves for the rest of the season and beyond.
There are still a few weeks left for teams to determine whether or not they will be buying or selling, especially with the extra Wild Card in play for each league.
However, there is no question that each team has a particular scenario that they would like to avoid at all costs. For some, it may be not acquiring that one big player that can fill a particular hole. For others, it could be failing to unload a player that's not part of their future plans.
Whatever the case, each scenario could have lasting consequences down the road for each team.
