With rumors about guys like Madison Bumgarner, Marcus Stroman, and Trevor Bauer circulating, it's time to check out five of the league's best players who could be traded as the trade deadline approaches.

Scherzer, a former Diamondbacks first-round pick, is a six-time all star and three-time Cy Young winner.
