MLB Trade Rumors: Ranking Each Team's Best Minor League Trade Asset

New York's Austin Romine has everyday catcher potential, but he's stuck behind Jesus Montero, making him a likely trade-chip.

There's an obvious reason why teams like Pittsburgh, Toronto, Milwaukee and Cincinnati are the teams dealing away players at the trade deadline, to teams like Boston, New York and Philadelphia.

The first group are teams that spend the majority of the season near the bottom of the standings, while the second group are consistently challenging for playoff spots.

For the first time in a long while, that first group isn't in selling mode yet, as the Pirates, Brewers and Reds are all hot on the trail of a division title, or if they miss out, a wild-card spot.

Still, if these teams want to bolster their rosters and stay in the hunt, they're going to have to part with some pretty fine prospect talent, and teams like Texas, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati are in perfect shape, considering they have some of the top minor league talent available.

Not every team on this list is going to part with players this trade-season, but if they did, these would be the guys who could have the most value as a trade-chip.
