Today is the day. The MLB no-waiver trade deadline is rapidly approaching and there have already been a ton of deals.

The biggest shakeup may come out of Washington with the Nationals making star outfielder Bryce Harper available.

From Cole Hamels to Asdrubal Cabrera to Mike Moustakas, plenty of big names have been traded over the last few days and there's always a chance another top player could be on the move soon.

The Rays are still talking with teams interested in starting pitcher Chris Archer and Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones could be on his way out of Baltimore.
