MLB free agency is now less than two weeks away and a lot of new deals will be made this year. The deadline for free agency 2019 is July 31, and before that most of the deals will be made. Top teams such as Atlanta Braves, New York Yankees, Milwaukee Brewers, Cleveland Indians, etc. are ready to rebuild their roster with new players. Here are the top star players who will have the most interesting trade deals in the MLB free agency.
Madison Bumgarner – San Francisco Giants
Madison Bumgarner is one of the biggest names in the free agency and every MLB team wants him. The San Francisco Giants team is not doing that well and Bumgarner is looking for a better future. The Yankees and the Braves are in line to get Madison, but the Giants might not trade their star pitcher as they have no good players left.
If this is it, what an ending. Thank you Madison Bumgarner.

Marcus Stroman – Toronto Blue Jays
Marcus Stroman in the All-Star player from the team of Toronto Blue Jays and won’t become a free agent until 2021. But it does not mean that the Blue Jays can’t trade him, the contract can be shifted to some other MLB team. Stroman is a great starting pitcher and a lot of teams might be interested in a deal.
Despite twitter rumors, I hear there’s been no talk to this point between the Braves and Jays involving Marcus Stroman. “Total fabrication,” is a phrase I heard.

Trevor Bauer – Cleveland Indians
The Cleveland Indians are in a dire need of new players and trading out Trevor Bauer doesn’t make a lot of sense. But the recent performance of Bauer might change the decision of the Indians team. They have been getting a lot of offers for Bauer and it would be smart to move him out of the team and make space for new players.
I’m told Yankees brass has been split on Madison Bumgarner and Marcus Stroman, which is a potential reason why they’re now connected to Trevor Bauer. Tim Naehring being at his last start is no coincidence.

Josh Abreu – Chicago White Sox
Josh Abreu had a decent last season with 21 home runs, 66 RBIs, and a .273 batting average. As he is now a free agent, there are many teams interested in a trade deal. The Chicago Red Sox are considering some offers and Bauer would have no choice but go with the new team. There are also chances that the Red Socks can extend the contract of Bauer.
I sure hope Abreu and Colome will be sold come Aug. 1st. If not, another blunder by Hahn.
