Here’s a look back at the original analysis MLBTR offered over the past seven days:
- In this week’s edition of his “Knocking Down the Door” series, which focuses on prospects making cases for big league promotions, Jason Martinez analyzed five players who could be in the majors soon.
- Steve Adams examined the performances of six notable veterans who have vesting options at year’s end. CC Sabathia and Matt Holliday are among the names.
- Mark Polishuk broke down which teams could have interest in 32-year-old Cuban free agent Yulieski Gurriel.
- With the Aug. 1 deadline a week closer, Jeff Todd updated his list of the top 15 trade candidates.
- Steve made cases for and against the Padres trading southpaw Drew Pomeranz this summer. The entire MLBTR writing staff then weighed in, and Steve polled our readers on the topic.
- Finally, Jason looked at the five most important transactions of the week – all featuring household names.
