With one month of the MLB offseason complete and the winter meetings coming up, what has already been a busy first few weeks of transactions promises to only get busier in the weeks ahead.

On the free-agent market, Brian McCann, Jhonny Peralta and Ricky Nolasco have each landed long-term deals to join new teams.

The trade market has been active as well, with the big move being the Detroit Tigers’ swap of Prince Fielder and $30 million for Ian Kinsler. It’s a move that could open things up for Detroit to re-sign Max Scherzer at some point.

On a smaller scale, the Cardinals swapped David Freese for Peter Bourjos in a four-player trade with the Los Angeles Angels.

There are still plenty of storylines left to play out, from figuring out where the market’s top free agents will be playing in 2014 to sorting through whether or not the top rumors of the day will wind up coming true or not.

As the calendar flips over to December, here is a look at the biggest storylines heading into the MLB offseason’s second month.
