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. << Trade Central 2016 << Trade Central 2015 << Trade Central 2014 << Trade Central 2013 << Trade Central 2012 << Trade Central 2011 << Trade Central 2010 << Trade Central 2009 << Trade Central 2008 << Trade Central 2007 << Trade Central 2006 << Trade Central 2005 << Trade Central 2004 << Trade Central 2003 << Trade Central 2002
