Trade Deadline Preview Part 3

This is my final part of the series and is in some ways the simpliest but in others the hardest to write.

Who Can They Acquire?

The following is not an exhaustive list but is a pretty fair assortment of names that have been mentioned. For the sake of this discussion I have limited this to 1B, 3B and OF (with the occasional SS thrown in). Along with the player name I am going to list the year the player is signed thru and how much remaining salary the player has (this year and future years). I have excluded the likes of Reyes, Pence and Ethier since I don’t see them being moved.

Carlos Pena 2011 6.6 million
Derrek Lee 2011 2.4 million
James Loney 2012 1.6 million (arb in 2012)
