With the 2014 MLB All-Star Game now in the rearview mirror, the summer trade market is about to heat up.
The trade deadline is in just a couple of weeks, and it'll be here before we know it. With the focus on the stretch run beginning on August 1 and running through the regular season, teams will be looking to add talent before then in hopes that it'll propel them to the playoffs.
Currently holding a four-game lead atop the AL East, the Baltimore Orioles are one of the teams that will be looking to make additions to their roster this summer. They likely won't be looking to make any flashy trades, instead aiming for a complementary piece or two.
