Top 10 Teams Most Likely to be Buyers

1. New York Yankees

Of course, the Yankees will be buyers. They're 64-28 heading into the All-Star break and have the best record in baseball. The Yankees' starting rotation is probably overachieving and they'll probably want to replace Joey Gallo sooner rather than later.

2. Houston Astros

The Astros finished the first half with 59 wins and might be the most complete team when healthy. But added depth in the bullpen and lineup won't hurt them.

3. New York Mets

The Mets have been dealing with plenty of injuries this season. But with Jacob deGrom slated to return shortly, the starting rotation might not need much help with David Peterson and Trevor Williams still on the roster. However, the Mets could use another bullpen arm and absolutely need a designated hitter.

4. Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers won't make as big of a splash as last season with the additions of Max Scherzer and Trea Turner, but the Dodgers have a need with their starting rotation and would benefit from an extra bullpen arm and depth on the bench.

5. Atlanta Braves

The Atlanta Braves were extremely active last season before the deadline and traded their way into the World Series. The Braves are getting contributions from guys they didn't think they would be getting it from. But an extra infielder is something the Braves will want to address.

6. San Diego Padres

The Padres are 10 games back from the Dodgers in the NL West. They're likely not going to win the NL West, but they do have the pieces to earn a Wild Card slot. The Padres should ultimately get back Fernando Tatis Jr., who is really their best player. He will be the best addition at the deadline for any team.

7. Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers and Cardinals will be fighting for the NL Central. Both teams will want to make changes to their team to help them get past one another. The Brewers are just .5 games in front of the Cardinals at this very moment. This race will be intriguing. But the Brewers could probably use some help at the bottom of their order offensively.

8. Minnesota Twins

The Twins currently lead the AL Central over the Guardians and White Sox. The Guardians are two games out while the White Sox are three games out. Those three teams will all be in the market, but the Twins, with the lead in the division, will likely be the most active and trigger-friendly.

9. Seattle Mariners

Most analysts were ready to write the Mariners off. But after a brawl against the Angels, the Mariners woke up and essentially just won 14 straight games before the All-Star Break. At 51-42, the Mariners will absolutely look to add talent to their roster to win an AL Wild Card spot.

10. Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies ended up firing their manager Joe Girardi and then watched Bryce Harper go down with an injury. Remember the Braves with Acuna down and out? They went crazy at the deadline and won the World Series last year. The Phillies could be sneaky if things play out well in the next couple of weeks.
