The trade deadline is finally upon us and the pitching-market rumor mill is beginning to overflow.
Some of the biggest names originally made available are off the table, with the Zack Greinke trade to the Angels and Cole Hamels' extension, in addition to the Francisco Liriano deal, but the potential is still there for a huge July 31st.
Ace-caliber pitchers such as Josh Johnson, Ryan Dempster and James Shields are all very much available, as well as lower-tier guys such as Jason Vargas and Kevin Correia. In addition, in spite of a weak reliever market that lost its top potential target with Huston Street's extension in San Diego, there are still a couple of All-Stars in Jonathan Broxton and Chris Perez who could be on the move.
Here are the hottest rumors for 10 of the top pitching arms available as we head into tomorrow's MLB Trade Deadline.
