The trade market is heating up!
With less than a week to go before the July 31 trade deadline, trade talks are intensifying between buyers and sellers.
The Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals are both in the market for relief pitching. The San Francisco Giants, Cleveland Indians, Cincinnati Reds, Pittsburgh Pirates, Milwaukee Brewers, Arizona Diamondbacks and Philadelphia Phillies are in the market for offensive help.
The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox figure to be competing amongst each other for bullpen and rotation help.
The Diamondbacks could also jump into the market for a starting pitcher if the right guy became available to them.
The scouts have been out checking out potential targets, recommendations have been made and now the teams have narrowed down their lists of "have-to-have" players.
