The trade deadline is a little over a week and a half away and, surprisingly, there hasn’t been a whole lot of action over the past month.

The only big move that has taken place was the Texas Rangers landing left-hander Cliff Lee. Next to that, it seems teams are holding their cards close to their vests and not letting anyone else know what they’re about to do.

The other problem may be the expensive price tag on a lot of players that could be had on the trade market. Teams are unlikely to pay a hefty price for players they may only have for a few months.

We may not see a whole lot of movement from anyone until late next week where the rumors will be flying, but the possibility of the big blockbuster deals may not come to pass this time around.

So, let’s take a look at what we can look forward to in the next week and a half leading up to Major League Baseball’s trade deadline on Saturday, July 31st.
