3 MLB Players Who Could Still Be Traded in August

With less than a week left prior to the August 31 MLB waiver deadline, there are still a few big names that could end up changing uniforms. Here's a look at three stars that could be traded before week's end. 

1. Andrew McCutchen, OF, San Fransisco Giants

Andrew McCutchen's name continues to swirl in the trade winds, especially since he cleared revocable waivers last week. Now that he can be traded to ANY team, the free agent to-be is likely playing his final few games for the Giants. In the past two weeks, Cutch has hit two homers and stolen four bags, bringing his season totals up to 15 homers and 13 steals. He's an attractive option for contenders, especially with his plus defensive abilities as well.

2. Curtis Granderson, OF, Toronto Blue Jays

Don't be surprised if Curtis Granderson is playing his home games in a different country by the end of the week. The veteran outfielder fits the mold of a platoon fourth outfielder on a winning team, batting .250 with 11 homers against right-handed pitching this season. Beyond that, he's owed less than $2 million, and is known as a big addition to the clubhouse. Look for Grandy to be on the move.

3. Josh Donaldson, 3B, Toronto Blue Jays

Another current Blue Jay that could be on his way out is Josh Donaldson -- if he can somehow get on to the field. The All-Star third baseman, who has been sidelined since late May, would be the biggest name traded this week. Averaging 37 homers, 103 runs, and 100 RBI over the past three seasons, the impending free agent could theoretically change the outlook of the playoff race during the stretch run of the season.
