Big-Name MLB Waiver Trade Targets Who Could Still Move by August 31
Tony Gutierrez/Associated Press

If you happened to follow the action of the MLB July 31 non-waiver trade deadline in real time Thursday, there is no doubt that when 4 p.m. ET hit, you weren't sure what had just happened.

It was a maelstrom of activity from the time the Oakland A's acquired Jon Lester until the very end, when the Tampa Bay Rays sent David Price to the Detroit Tigers in a three-team trade and Emilio Bonifacio and James Russell ended up with the Atlanta Braves.

It was glorious.

What about the players who didn't switch teams, though—guys like Alex Rios, Adam Dunn and Josh Willingham?

And what happened with the Philadelphia Phillies? They had four All-Stars on the block and didn't move any of them.

They have all become prime candidates for an August waiver trade. If you're unfamiliar with the process, please see this piece by Bleacher Report's Joel Reuter, which lays it out.

Here are eight big-name MLB waiver trade targets (four on the same team) who could still move this August based on their production and contract status, along with at least two teams that each player could help.

To be sure, there are countless more that will be put on waivers, but these eight have a realistic chance of switching teams.
