Top 3 Outielders Most Likely To Be Traded This Summer

As we continue to look ahead at some early possible trade candidates around baseball, we'll move to the outfield. 

Tyler O’Neill 

Now that catcher Willson Contreras has been added to the already overcrowded outfield mix in St. Louis, that brings trade talks back to the forefront for the struggling Cardinals. O'Neill has been mentioned in rumors since the offseason, and those only intensified last month when he was benched by manager Oliver Marmol for supposedly not hustling (which O'Neill vehemently denied).

Ramon Laureano

The Oakland A's are constantly ready to peddle major league veterans, and about the only one left on the squad with any sort of trade value is Laureano. The 6-year veteran with a speed/power combo hasn't been setting the world on fire in recent seasons, and even sat out 80 games for a PED suspension from late 2021 into 2022. But he's still got some skills in the outfield that some teams could use. 

Nick Senzel

Once a top prospect for the Cincinnati Reds, Senzel has never really panned out in the big leagues, spending most of his time on the injured list. And when he has played, he's posted lifetime marks of a 2.42 average and a .668 OPS with an OPS+ of just 74. This year, after missing the first couple of weeks of the season, he's actually stayed in the lineup and fared reasonably well, with a .259 average and 14 RBIs in 24 games. Approaching the age of 28, he no longer fits into any of the Reds' long-term plans, and he could be had for the taking on the trade market.
