Scouting Top 25 MLB Prospects That Could Be Dealt at Trade Deadline
Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports
Both SS Chris Owings (Diamondbacks) and 2B Kolten Wong (Cardinals) are candidates to be dealt before Wednesday's deadline.

With only a few days remaining before the trade deadline, teams that view themselves as contenders are feverishly evaluating the market with the hope of adding a key piece for the final two months of the seasonand hopefully beyond.

Meanwhile, the teams that have already thrown in the towel are scouring other organizations’ farm systems as they prepare to potentially deal their major-league talent for a package of prospects.

So far, there has been only one significant trade involving prospects. On July 22, the Chicago Cubs traded veteran starter Matt Garza to the Texas Rangers in exchange for Justin Grimm, highly regarded prospects Mike Olt and C.J. Edwards and a pair of players to be named later.

With that being said, here are scouting reports on the top 25 prospects—based on their likelihood of being traded and not on future potential—who could be dealt this year.
