The 2018 Major League Baseball Trade Deadline is fast approaching, and teams are already making moves and loading up.
As MLB hits the dog days of summer, it’s that time of the year when organizations take a close look at rosters and determine whether to be buyers or sellers. This year, the gap between the league’s top teams and worst teams is more significant than in years past, which means there may be more activity – teams more willing to sell – and more expendable players available on the market.
Here is a list of all the major moves leading up to 4 p.m. deadline on July 31:
