The MLB trade deadline is now less than a week away and the rumors around who will be staying and going are heating up.

Though no blockbuster deals have taken place yet, many teams, including the Toronto Blue Jays and Detroit Tigers appear to be sellers at the point, with many teams scouring those teams looking for starter and bullpen help.

Expect playoff contenders to be active up until the July 31 4 p.m. trade deadline, trying to solidify or keep their leads in division races.
