Here’s the past week’s original content from the MLB Trade Rumors writing staff…

  • As potential buyers and sellers prepare for the trade deadline, MLBTR will be previewing some potential names who could be changing uniforms on or before July 31 in our Trade Candidate series.  First up, Mark Polishuk looked at the PhilliesHowie Kendrick and Connor Byrne examined Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole.
  • While most of the deadline dealing will come in July, it isn’t too unusual to see a big trade swung in June.  Jeff Todd looks back at some notable June trades from the last five seasons.
  • Also from Jeff, he listed nine veteran players who are putting up big numbers after signing low-cost one-year contracts.
  • Logan Morrison is another player who took a modest contract (one year, $2.5MM) last winter and is now positioning himself for a much bigger free agent payday this coming offseason.  “LoMo” entered today’s action with 16 homers and a .243/.347/.551 slash line in 219 plate appearances for the Rays.  Jeff breaks down Morrison’s season and looks at his open market earning potential in our latest Free Agent Stock Watch piece.
