With the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline just around the corner, the next week has the potential to either make or break the season for some teams.
Two major deals have transpired since Friday, with the Los Angeles Angels acquiring Huston Street from the San Diego Padres over the weekend and the Detroit Tigers trading for the Rangers' Joakim Soria on Wednesday night, per USA Today's Scott Boeck.
In return for the proven closers, both the Padres and Rangers received a loaded prospect package featuring some of the best young talent from the Angels' and Tigers' systems, respectively.
More importantly, both of the aforementioned trades can be viewed as a "win" for all teams involved, as they fit each organization's short- or long-term timelines.
Here are three other "win-win" trade scenarios teams should pull the trigger on before the deadline.
