2014 Trade Central Index

For any trade involving a major leaguer or a Prospect Handbook-caliber minor leaguer, we summarize the players’ strengths, weaknesses and possible future roles. We slant our trade analysis toward the young players and prospects involved, letting the veterans’ track records do most of the talking.

Any player who is designated for assignment, and thus removed from his club’s 40-man roster, is not considered for Trade Central because the resulting trade is not a pure talent-for-talent exchange. Teams have much less leverage in such trades.
