Philadelphia Phillies' Untouchable List at the 2013 MLB Trade Deadline

While the baseball world is still in the midst of the All-Star break, the conclusion of the festivities means one thing: It's the peak of trading season. Teams around the majors will be dealing for or trading away players based upon their standings and future potential.

Such a position isn't always clear-cut, and for the Philadelphia Phillies, this could not be any truer in 2013. Their prospect depth isn't ideal for the future by any means, but their recent winning ways have them slated toward making one final push for October.

Even though there still remain just under two weeks until the July 31 trade deadline, things still can change. The Phillies could move into first place in the division, or they could fall flat on their faces into the cellar of the division. Right now, they're leaning toward buying, but as is always the case with baseball, anything can happen.

Phillies GM Ruben Amaro, Jr. has admitted that nobody on the Phillies is untouchable, per CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, but it's hard to imagine that there aren't some players about whom the Phillies would hang up the phone immediately if they received calls for them. Here's a run-through of the Phillies who will definitely be here to stay through the trade deadline and beyond because the team will refuse to even listen to offers about them.
