2014 MLB Trade Deadline: Latest Rumors and Destinations for Every Top Target
Matt York/Associated Press

For those who were too enamored with Fourth of July festivities, the MLB trade season has officially begun.

Three of the more notable starting pitchers available—Arizona's Brandon McCarthy and Chicago's Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija—along with McCarthy's teammate, left-handed reliever Joe Thatcher, were traded over the long weekend.

That's led to a startling lack of activity on the rumor mill, with more speculation than actual rumors as we wait for teams to drop out of the playoff picture.

But the rumor mill hasn't come to a complete stop, and there are a number of top targets that are still very much in play. 

Here's a look at the latest trade winds flowing around them and where they may end up.
