As MLB creeps ever closer to the non-waiver trade deadline, more names come up in various rumors and scenarios.
Some of the names appearing in recent weeks have been expected, either due to expiring contracts, expendability or current teams not able to meet contract demands.
Other names, however, have been surprising—names not largely considered to have been made available. In some of those cases, the players mentioned might not be made available at all, but it hasn’t stopped pundits from writing about them regardless.
Bleacher Report will explore some of the more interesting targets out there, and we will break down the biggest name available at each position that is likely just a pipe dream for many teams.
We will only include players who have been the subject of rumors thus far this season, so if you’re thinking that guys like Matt Kemp and Joey Votto could be on this list, dream on.
