Andrew Nelles/Associated Press

With Memorial Day on the horizon, it's time for those immersed in the game of baseball to re-evaluate the trajectory of the 2014 season. For fans, media members and analysts, that means taking true inventory of the standings and forming an opinion with three-quarters of the season remaining.

For front office executives, scouts and general managers, it signals an important juncture: Starting now, teams must make critical decisions on players—from both inside and outside the organization—in order to blaze a path toward a pennant chase in 2014 or long-term rebuilding.

The time for patience and evaluation is over. Spring training is a distant memory, and the summer months are on the horizon. Now is when the best executives thrive. In a league full of parity, the right trade, well-timed call-up or under-the-radar signing could be the difference between glory or failure. 

In order for each team to reach self-appointed goals, help is needed along the way. With the June and July trading season rapidly approaching, rumors will arise around every team.

The following is what you need to know about the latest rumors and banter around the game right now.
