Now that the 2013 MLB season has reached the one-quarter mark, teams have a much clearer picture of their biggest needs going forward.
Each team will take the next two-plus months to assess their deficiencies and determine whether trade deadline deals can fix some of their issues.
For some, it could simply be a matter of adding a veteran presence that can help off the bench. Others could be looking at a more major acquisition to bolster an area of need. Still others will be bidding for the services of a rental player who can help out in the short-term.
Not every team will be looking to make upgrades to help out for the rest of this season. Teams like the Houston Astros and Miami Marlins will likely be used as sources for other contending teams to make changes.
Here then is each MLB team's biggest need at the one-quarter mark that could be addressed via the trade market.
