Trade season is officially upon us, and with less than a week to go until baseball’s August 1 non-waiver trade deadline arrives, things are sure to pick up.

We’ve already seen one big trade go down this week, with the Chicago Cubs acquiring closer Aroldis Chapman from the New York Yankees for a package that included the team’s top prospect, shortstop Gleyber Torres.

If you’re receiving MLB trade rumor notifications on B/R’s Team Stream app, then you’ve already heard the news from Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal that the San Diego Padres have agreed to send outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for a Single-A prospect. If you’re not, well, what are you waiting for?

What follows are trade ideas based on the latest chatter from the rumor mill. Some of these we touched upon briefly on Monday, while others haven’t yet been explored. 

Keep in mind that these proposed deals are pure speculation. Unless otherwise noted, there’s no indication that any of them have actually been discussed.
