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. As has been the case for a few years running now, there isn't a whole lot of talent available for teams with needs to fill at third base. More than a few contenders could use an upgrade at the position though, so some intrepid GMs are bound to make a deal of the "let's cross our fingers and hope he gets hot variety."
