The MLB trade deadline is now less than a week away but still no blockbuster deals have taken place. Many teams, however, including the Blue Jays and Tigers have emerged as sellers. Several clubs have checked in with those teams looking for starters and bullpen help.
Noah Syndergaard is the biggest pitching name on the market, with the Mets expected to deal their ace before the July 31 deadline.
There is no waiver trade deadline this season so teams need to finalize their plans moving forward before then.
