The nonwaiver trade deadline is behind us, but that doesn't mean teams can't still upgrade their roster via trade. Clubs now have until the end of August to add players via waivers and still include them on the postseason roster.
Generally the moves made at this time are small scale, but there have been some notable waiver deals over the years, most memorably the blockbuster between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox in 2012.
This year's crop of waiver trade candidates is led by the likes of Alex Rios, Adam Dunn, Aaron Hill, Bartolo Colon, John Danks and whoever the Philadelphia Phillies decide to try to move.
What follows is a look at the one player each contender should look to acquire this August, as they look to shore up their rosters for the stretch run.
