Miguel Tejada (why MLB.com has him here, I don't know)
Team: The Astros are always buyers.
Value: He’s hitting well this year, although there have been questions about how much of that is from Minute Maid. His range is decreasing.
Destination: Stay in Houston
Team: As previously said, the Rockies are buyers.
Value: Hitting .224 with 6 home runs.
Destination: None I can think of. The Rockies aren’t selling, and I can’t imagine teams salivating at a corner infielder with these stats. If he goes, it’s as a throw-in.
Team: The Marlins are in the running still, so they are buyers still, I suppose. That may change in August, but that applies to several teams.
Value: He has a good average (.285), decent OPS (.782), and some pop (10 homers).
Destination: The Giants need offense, and there’s the rumor he would go there. It hasn’t died for several months, but...
Likely? Maybe 30% he goes. Depending on how the Marlins play, it may go up for August.
Team: The Nationals are most definitely sellers.
Value: Actually, quite a bit, with a 117 OPS+.
Destination: The Mets seem to be lacking a bat with Delgado out. The Giants, again. Maybe Texas, if they need a hitter, as Buster Olney says. Maybe the Red Sox.
Likely? He probably should go, as the Nats need prospects.
Team: Twins, Looking down the list, several players seem to be on contenders. For these players, expect Buyers, meaning it’s unlikely they’ll be traded unless they’re very expendable, in which case, I’ll elaborate, or used as bait.
Team: Rangers, Buyers, although probably bait.
Team: The Royals SHOULD be sellers, but...
Value: Multi-positional, and a 107 OPS+, so he’s worth a bit.
Destination: Probably none.
Likely? Royals GM Dayton Moore doesn’t want to trade “core players”, so probably no.
Team: Orioles, Sellers
Value: Not a whole lot (71 OPS+)
Destination: He’s in the last year of his contract, and his family is in Baltimore, so he’d probably go to a contender needing a bench player. He’s too expensive for that, though.
Team: Diamondbacks, Sellers
Value: Almost identical to Mora, but slightly cheaper.
Destination: Nowhere, very fast.
Likely? Only to my suggested destination.
Team: Buyers, but could be trade bait, as the White Sox have Gordon Beckham.
Team: Orioles, Sellers
Value: Can play outfield and corner infield, with some power.
Destination: Any team needing offense, depth, or both.
Likely? Depends on what happens to Mora and Aubrey Huff. If either goes, he’s their replacement.
Team: Blue Jays, Probably Sellers
Value: Older than Tracy and Mora, and fewer defensive options, but a slightly better hitter.
Destination: Anywhere that needs a lot of depth at first base, which doesn’t seem likely.
Team: See Mark Teahen
Value: Butcher with the glove at an already stacked posittion, has power, but no ability to get on base.
Destination: See Mark Teahen
Likely? See Mark Teahen
Team: A’s, Sellers
Value: 112 OPS+, and can play the whole infield.
Destination: The A’s apparently want to keep him.
Likely? Orlando Cabrera’s more feasible if you want an A’s middle infielder.
Team: Padres, Sellers, but there may not be any interest.
Team: Dodgers, Buyers, may be bait
Team: Blue Jays, Sellers
Value: Average utility player.
Destination: All I can find is the ‘Stros may be interested.
Likely? With the Astros as the only candidates? Who knows. They probably want him, but have no prospects to get him.
Team: Tigers, Buyers, may be bait
