The recent moves that sent Scott Feldman to the Orioles and Ricky Nolasco to the Dodgers kicked off what should be an intriguing few weeks as the non-waiver trade deadline at the end of July approaches. With two fewer pitchers available for teams seeking rotation help, the players still on the market may come at a steeper price, though only time will tell. The star players who are dealt most of the time get the headlines despite being dealt one of multiple solid prospects in return.

Take one of the more lopsided deals recently; the Rangers traded Mark Teixeira and Ron Mahay to the Braves for Elvis Andrus, Matt Harrison, Neftali Feliz, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Beau Jones. Not a bad haul for the Rangers and while Andrus and Feliz didn't make their debuts until 2009, those two along with Harrison all played a big part in helping the Rangers reach back-to-back World Series in 2010 and 2011.
