Ranking the trade options by position area

From what I'm hearing, there could be as many as 65 players on the trade block as I write this. I've discussed, and ranked, all of them below.

Some of these players aren't widely thought to be trade options, but I suspect they will be soon or could be moved in the right deal. Let's get to it:

Starting pitchers

1. David Price, LHP, Detroit Tigers: The Tigers' recent slide has reportedly compelled GM Dave Dombrowski to become a seller, and Price has the most trade value of any "rental player" (free agent to be). The Tigers have not made Price a contract offer since spring training and aren't expected to re-sign him.

2. Cole Hamels, LHP, Philadelphia Phillies: The Phils are getting enough significant offers that it's becoming more likely Hamels will be dealt. That said, it'll have to be done early next week so there is time for a physical before any deal is completed. The Dodgers and Cubs are the most likely destinations.

3. Johnny Cueto, RHP, Cincinnati Reds: The Reds likely will trade Cueto next week; the Astros, Blue Jays and Dodgers are the leading candidates to acquire his services
