- Tim Dierkes explored the possibility of Carlos Villanueva being a trade candidate this summer.
- Steve Adams expects Mike Adams to draw plenty of interest should the Phillies continue their early season struggles.
- Mark Polishuk opines the Mariners could net a decent prospect or two if they decide to deal Kendrys Morales before the trade deadline.
- MLBTR contributor Chuck Myron reported the Rays' stadium situation is not a distraction for their players or manager.
- Steve provided a progress report on the players non-tendered this past offseason who are currently playing in the Majors.
- Zach Links updated the players with a 2014 vesting option and how they can be exercised.
- Charlie asked MLBTR readers whether the Rangers should trade Jurickson Profar to the Cardinals for Oscar Taveras. Just over 52% of you advise GM Jon Daniels to do the deal.
- Tim hosted the MLBTR live chat this week and sifted through the MLBTR Mailbag.
- Zach put together the best of the baseball blogosphere in Baseball Blogs Weigh In.
