It's just not going to happen.

No matter how hard we pray to the baseball gods, our favorite team won't pull off a last-minute trade for Miami's Giancarlo Stanton. It's the lack of a superstar like him that makes this year's crop of available outfielders seem, well, pretty awful.

Still, each of the outfielders on the market would serve a purpose on a contender, even if it was as nothing more than filling the role of fourth outfielder or as a pinch-hitter off of the bench.

With that said, here's a look at the 10 best outfielders who could be changing uniforms between now and July 31.
