Ranking the Top 10 Corner Infielders Available at the MLB Trade Deadline

A handful of teams have their eyes set on veteran Michael Young.

Trade deadline banter is in full swing as just a week remains before the July 31 non-waiver window closes.

Here we will rank the top 10 corner infielders—that's first base and third base for all you baseball blockheads out there—who are either on the trade block or involved in swirling rumors.

The New York Yankees and Kansas City Royals are in search of an upgrade at the hot corner, while National League counterparts, the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Colorado Rockies, could use an improved bat in their lineups who can man first base.

The ranking is based on an objective outlook, weighing offensive production more heavily than defensive ability. Also, while WAR plays a part in the ranking process, it was not the end all in earning a higher position on the list.
