The Winter Meetings are up and running, and many have suggested that we could see more trades this year than any previous season. With the prices of free agents climbing to new heights, clubs will opt to pursue players with more affordable salaries on the trade market rather than hand out fat checks to the top talents available on the open market.

With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the top names that could be moved this week. Note: this list was created for speculation purposes, so names that are reportedly in deals nearing completion (Aroldis Chapman, Javier Baez, etc.) at the time this was posted have been omitted.

List as of 7:12 AM CST on December 7.

Next: Mitch Moreland or Prince Fielder
