The surprising start of the 2013 Boston Red Sox has put them in a unique position with about five weeks to go until the MLB trade deadline. While many thought going into the season that the Sox would be full-on sellers, their success has dictated that the team’s thinking may shift slightly towards winning this season without mortgaging the future.

While no player is truly immune from being moved, there is a huge divide in the likelihood that certain players will be moved at or before the deadline. Here, we’ll break down each Boston Red Sox’s odds of being traded before the deadline.
