Trade rumors may have died down and teams are gearing up for the start of spring training, which is approaching quickly. But that doesn’t mean that trade talks aren’t happening between teams. Things do tend to happen in baseball when you least expect it. 

Last offseason’s seven-player trade between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Atlanta Braves involving Justin Upton, Martin Prado and Chris Johnson didn’t take place until January 24.

Jed Lowrie was traded from the Houston Astros to the Oakland A’s in a five-player deal on February 4.

John Jaso and Michael Morse were traded in less significant deals on January 16. Mike Carp and Conor Gillaspie were acquired by the Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox, respectively, during the second half of February.

Here are four players who have reportedly been on the trade block at one time or another this offseason and the logical landing spots for them in a deal.
