2011 MLB Trade Rumors: How Every Team's Needs Have Changed

We're into June now and the division races are starting to take shape.

A clear picture is forming of which teams are emerging as buyers, and which teams are falling out of the race and will likely end up as sellers.

In some cases injuries have created new needs for teams that previously viewed certain positions as strengths. In other cases, financial instability has forced some franchises to trim payroll.

A few teams that were not expected to contend this season currently sit right in the middle of a pennant race, and some are leading the race.

Other teams have seen players they expected to be assets, turn into massive disappointments.

The outlook of each team has changed by varying degrees up to this point of the season.

Here's a quick look at each team and how its needs have changed.
