The second half of the 2014 MLB season kicks off Friday, as teams turn their attention back to the task at hand coming out of the All-Star break.

With 23 of the 30 teams sitting no more than eight games out of their respective division or wild-card races, it will be an interesting trade deadline to say the least. The first few weeks of the second half will go a long way in determining whether teams wind up as buyers or sellers, though a vast majority of fringe teams could simply stand pat.

Two of the big chips have already fallen prior to the July 31 deadline, with the Chicago Cubs shipping Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to the Oakland Athletics back on July 4.

That being said, there are still a number of potential impact players who could be dealt before the non-waiver deadline, and what follows is a look at the top of the heap.

  • Overall impact they would have on a contender
  • Estimated cost to acquire
  • Likelihood they will be traded
