MLB Trade Speculation: Updating Top 8 Hitting Targets 1 Month from Deadline
Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport
A healthy Chase Utley is a dangerous player.

Without Giancarlo Stanton, whom the Miami Marlins seem adamant about holding on to this season, or San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley, whose team is still hanging around in a very winnable NL West, the trade market is lacking in young and controllable talent.

All eight hitters on this list are on teams with losing records that are either no longer in playoff contention or aren't expected to remain in contention much longer.

Some bigger names could be added to the list as teams drop out of the playoff picture over the next couple of weeks. For now, this is my list of the top eight available hitters on the trade market.
