The summer trade season has officially begun.
With the Fourth of July blockbuster that sent Chicago Cubs pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to the Oakland Athletics, it's safe to say that the MLB summer trading market is open for business.

The rumor mill has already been churning prior to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, and naturally the O's have been right in the middle of it.
Let's take a look at the chances Baltimore will pick up any of the available names.
