The MLB trade deadline is one week away as the second half of the season is underway.

The race to make moves before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline is on, and teams in the contention looking to pick up a big bat or solidify their starting rotation for a playoff run are making calls around the league.

The biggest name of the summer trade market is gone after All–Star shortstop Manny Machado was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers from the Orioles. But while that deal is complete, others are expected in the week ahead.

Plenty of speculation still surrounds the Orioles, as trade talks for pitcher Zach Britton continue to heat up.

The Reds are looking to trade pitcher Matt Harvey, and a few teams have asked about the righty.
