One Player from Each MLB Team That Should Be Traded Before the Deadline
Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

It’s not all about what teams will do, but more of what they should do.

As the Major League Baseball trade deadline arrives on July 31, teams are going to be frantically making calls looking to see who’s on the block and who isn’t. Depending on the team’s position, they’ll determine whether they want to be sellers this year—giving up on the playoffs—or buyers—hoping to make the playoffs.

That determination makes all the difference in the world.

While we’re still a little over two weeks away from Deadline Day, it’s time to look into the players who should be on the move. Teams will hope to acquire a player who’s going to make a franchise better in the short term or long term. If players hear their names on the rumor mill then there’s a chance they will get dealt.

So, which player should get traded before July 31? Here’s a look at a player on each team who the front office may decide to keep for the rest of the season, but could be packing his bags just as easily. If the organization is smart, they’ll pull the trigger on these players when presented with the opportunity to do so.
