A look back at the original reporting and analysis found on MLBTR this past week:
- Tim Dierkes asked MLBTR readers which high-profile player will be dealt this summer. You expect Jed Hoyer to be very busy come the Trade Deadline as all five Cubs mentioned in the survey received at least 20% of the vote paced by top vote-getter Matt Garza (39.7%) and runner-up Alfonso Soriano (35%).
- Tim examined the trade market for left-handed relievers.
- Steve Adams continued the Transaction Retrospection series by revisiting the Edwin Jackson-Daniel Hudson trade.
- Tim named the Top 100 prospects who could become trade bait.

- Tim issued an injury report on the 2014 free agent starters.
- In the wake of Kevin Gausman's promotion, Steve asked MLBTR readers who will be the next 2012 first round draft choice to make his MLB debut. You expect either Michael Wacha of the Cardinals (40%) or Mike Zunino of the Mariners (30%) to reach the Majors next.
- Tim asked MLBTR readers to pick a winner in the Jesus Montero-Michael Pineda trade from two offseasons ago. More than 67% of you sided with the Yankees.
