MLB Rumors: Top 5 Relievers Available On Trade Market

Trade season is getting ever closer, as we're less than six weeks away from the MLB trade deadline. Like every year, contending teams will be clamoring for help in the bullpen. 

Here's a look at five top relief arms that should be available for the right deal. 

Alex Lange, Detroit Tigers

A breakout closer this year for the Tigers, Lange has 10 saves, a 3.29 ERA and 12.2 strikeouts per nine innings. He's the team's most tradable commodity heading to the deadline, but being under team control for five more seasons, and having dealt away all other high-leverage relievers last offseason, the question of whether to trade Lange is a heavy one for the Tigers to ponder. 

Scott Barlow, Kansas City Royals

The Royals closer for the past few seasons has 7 saves with a 4.38 ERA and 12.8 K/9. KC now sports the worst record in the majors, and they will be selling.

Aroldis Chapman, Kansas City Royals

The other half of the Royals 1-2 bullpen tradeable punch, and one of the most obvious trade candidates, with 317 career saves on his resume. He struggled the previous couple of season with the New York Yankees, but has his fastball back into elite form, averaging a sizzling 15.8 K/9.

Kendall Graveman, Chicago White Sox

He's been a closer in the past, and has shared the duties this year as the team awaits for Liam Hendriks to resume the job full-time. Graveman has 6 saves with a 2.76 ERA and an 0.95 WHIP. 

Kyle Finnegan, Washington Nationals

The Nationals will be sellers, and their closer, Finnegan, will likely be scooped up by some team to serve as a setup man. He has 11 saves and a 4.56 ERA thus far this season.
