It's never too early to talk trades in Major League Baseball.
Before the season even started, there was speculation about this summer's biggest deals. The Yankees would seek out a starting pitcher. The Mets would trade Jose Reyes. And teams like the Padres and Diamondbacks were likely to hold fire sales.
The Trade Deadline Hot Stove will be preheating for at least another few weeks, but some trends are starting to emerge: buyers and sellers with holes to fill and expendable players to turn into prospects for the future.
In this slideshow are all 30 MLB teams, each matched with a player who either has come up in trade rumors already or is likely to soon—for potential buyers, it's someone to target, while for those who will likely be waiting for next year, I suggested guys who they should think twice before dealing.
Here's hoping for another exciting season of trade buzz!
