With the MLB trade deadline coming and coming fast, many teams are in need of help in different areas.
Teams looking for some late inning help should be looking at Colorado's Brian Fuentes. Fuentes, a side-winding southpaw who would be an improvement to anybody's bullpen, has drawn the most interest from the Mets and Yankees.
Another Rockie reportedly being dangled is Matt Holliday. Holliday is a solid hitter from the right side of the plate and could help teams looking for a little help on offense, such as the Yankees, D-backs, and Mets.
The problem is that Colorado will be looking for Major League ready prospects, which the Mets and D-backs lack. The Yankees have it, but will probably not be willing to give it up.
With C.C. Sabathia, Rich Harden, and Joe Blanton all off the market, there is not much left in the starting pitching category. Teams could try to pry away Cinncinati's Bronson Arroyo or Oakland's Justin Duchscherer. A.J Burnett is also a possibility, but teams may be cautious here because Burnett is often injured, and he has an opt-out clause in his whopping 28 million dollar contract, and even if he doesnt opt out, the team that trades for him will be stuck with his contract for another year. San Diego's Greg Maddux and Randy Wolf are also possibilities.
