Well, we've now officially crossed into March, which means we're not that far away from Opening Day. The Grapefruit and Cactus Leagues are now well under way and as we get closer to the regular season, the baseball trade rumors will just continue to heat up.
Hey, it's only a few more months until July 31.
Already, there are a couple of names that have garnered attention in the trade market. Obviously the Brewers and Prince Fielder will be a team to watch all season. If the Brewers fall out of the race in the NL Central, the heat on the Brewers to possibly move Fielder will be even greater than it already is.
Then there's the situation between the Rangers and Michael Young and whether Texas will buckle and give Young his trade out of town. The Yankees, meanwhile, in their desperate search for pitching, are now keeping an eye on Francisco Liriano, according to reports.
And then there's Felix Hernandez. King Felix is the best pitcher on a Mariners team expected to struggle once again this season, and one has to wonder if it'll get to the point where Seattle starts to think about trading him.
All this and more are just some of the rumors we'll address today as spring training rolls on. So keep reading for all the latest news and rumors.
