If their teams start to sell, these five could fetch quite a return at the trade deadline.
Even though the 60-game season in 2020 has made it more difficult for some teams near the bottom of the MLB standings to admit that the season is a lost cause and they need to sell, that doesn’t change the possibility that the 2020 trade deadline could be one of the busiest on record.
With game-changing sluggers, frontline starters, and solid relievers all on the market, these five names might be wearing new threads by the end of the deadline.
These five studs could be on the move by the 2020 MLB trade deadline
CP Arizona Diamondbacks
A failed starter who has found new life as an ace reliever, Bradley has six saves for a Diamondbacks team hovering around the .500 mark in the NL West.
Unfortunately, that record is only good for fourth place in that division, and the Dodgers, Rockies, and Padres all have the star power needed to carry their respective teams towards the postseason that Arizona just doesn’t have. Bradley could make a contending team in need of a bullpen very happy come the deadline.
Bradley won’t require tons of elite prospects to give up, but Arizona could add some real contributors to a very strong farm system bolstered by the Zack Greinke trade. The NL West is a tough division to break out in, but trading Bradley could be the first step towards helping Arizona build a team that can go deep into the postseason.
