The trade deadline is a few weeks away, so the rumor mill is about to heat up. To prep you for the coming trade season, we're providing a primer on who the top available trade targets could be as get closer to July 31st.
Ah, left field. All bat, no glove for the most part. But hey, that's what matters most for a lot of teams going into the playoffs. However, to say there's "not much" out there in the way of left fielders is probably a massive overstatement. A team's best bet might be to look for a player who has primarily played in center or right this year and convert them to left.
Probably not available, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.
Josh Willingham - for all intents and purposes, Willingham fell off of the trade market when he underwent knee surgery and was placed on the DL. He won't be back until after the trade deadline, and an August trade would probably be far more likely than a July one...only he likely wouldn't clear waivers....
