Establishing Each MLB Team's Top 2014 Trade Market Priorities
USA TODAY Sports

The July 31 non-waiver trade deadline may seem like it's still a ways off, but considering the trade market really starts to heat up when the calendar turns over to July, we're just a couple of weeks from the rumor mill kicking into full swing.

There is still some work to be done as far as teams establishing themselves as buyers or sellers, with a number of clubs hovering around the .500 mark, but a fairly decent picture can already be painted of what teams will be looking to do in July.

The following article breaks down all 30 MLB teams' 2014 trade-market priorities, and you will see the following four terms used when referring to potential moves:

  • Trade: A player almost certain to be moved, due to an expiring contract or his status on a rebuilding team.
  • Shop: A player that could be on the move, if the price is right.
  • Add: A clear area of need for the team, and one that it will almost certainly address at the deadline.
  • Explore: A potential area of need for the team, and one worth at least exploring other options for at the deadline.

So here in the middle of June, this is a preliminary look at what all 30 teams could be looking to do between now and the end of July.
