A few things are synonymous with the month of July for baseball fans. Obviously, a big draw (for some) is the Home Run Derby and All-Star Game, but what captivates just about everyone is the trade deadline.
The 2019 MLB regular season is going to be a little different because the league has done away with the non-waiver and waiver trade deadline stuff — there’s just one date teams must make trades by now. This year, all the action must be completed by 4pm ET on July 31st.
Regardless of how many deals actually get done in the coming weeks, there will be countless more rumors flying around about certain players who may never get close to actually being traded. The following six MLB players range on this spectrum — some will be a popular trade target, and others, maybe not so much.
What they all have in common, though, is that based on whatever the situation is with their current team, they could use a change of scenery and a fresh start.
