NBC Sports Boston Staff

With 22 teams currently within five games of a playoff spot as of Monday afternoon, this year's MLB trade deadline is shaping up to be very interesting, especially since there can't be any waiver deals made after July 31 this year, like the Justin Verlander trade in 2017.

Some names have already gone off the board, with the Red Sox acquiring Andrew Cashner and the A's trading for Homer Bailey over the weekend, but that leaves plenty of deals still on the table.
