Trade Watch: 5 Players Expected to be Changing Teams in July

 The MLB trade deadline is July 30 and as we approach the end of June, teams across the league are starting to identify their biggest needs. Trade chatter has picked up and we have identified five players who you could see traded over the course of the next 4.5 weeks.

5 Players Likely Getting Traded Before July 30

1. Trevor Story - Colorado Rockies: The 28-year-old shortstop recently committed the HR Derby at the All-Star game which is being held in Colorado, but Story could actually be traded by then. His agent has notified the team there will be no contract extension talks during the season. Story is a pure rental, who can provide speed, power and one hell of a glove up the middle. So far this season he's hit .255 with 9 HR and 34 RBI. Likely Destination: Oakland A's

2. Jose Berrios, Minnesota Twins: The 27-year-old is under team control for next season and may just be the best starting pitcher who is legitimately available on the market. His 96 K's in 89.2 innings is impressive and so is his 1.08 WHIP. The Twins continue to occupy the basement of their division and are headed for a rebuild. Berrios can fetch them a couple of pieces to build around for the future. Likely Destination: Toronto Blue Jays

3. Joey Gallo, Texas Rangers: Gallo can hit the ball to the moon but he also strikes out at a serious clip. So far this season, he's shown his usual power, with 16 HR and 40 RBI, however he's batting just .224. Now a days nobody seems to care about batting average and considering Gallo is an above defender, both the AL and NL will have teams interested. The outfielder has one more year of team control before hitting the open market. Likely Destination: San Diego Padres

4. Adam Frazier, Pittsburgh Pirates: Frazier is having a stellar season on a bad team and his versatility to play multiple positions will be very appealing to other teams. He's slashing .330/.399/471 and is on pace to have a career season. Frazier brings a lot to the table and there's going to be a ton of interest. Likely Destination: Chicago White Sox

5. Danny Duffy, Kansas City Royals: Duffy has veto power for any trade so he's going to pick exactly where he wants to compete for a World Series. He's one of the biggest names available and there's going to be a bidding war for the southpaw. His 2.44 ERA in 48 innings is impressive and so are his 55 punch outs. He's been banged up a little bit this season with a flexor strain, but once he gets another start or two under his belt and shows he's fine, expect offers to get serious. Likely Destination: Houston Astros
