Trade Deadline Sellers

This list is not as long as the buyers' list. It is reflective of the state of baseball this season when there seems to be more parity caused by the expanded playoffs. Not all of these teams have pieces that teams want or need. That is why they are among the worst teams in the league. The list of sellers is as follows.

Oakland A's

Chicago White Sox

Detroit Tigers

Kansas City Royals

Colorado Rockies

St. Louis Cardinals

Pittsburgh Pirates

Washington Nationals

This list could grow longer by Monday. Teams like the Seattle Mariners, San Diego Padres, New York Mets, and Chicago Cubs have not fully committed to buy or sell. The market could shift into a buyers' market by Monday, especially if San Diego and New York fully commit to sell. They each have several tradeable assets that teams would line up to try and get. If those four teams start selling the market will start to move and we will get a lot more action before the deadline.
