For example some situations that I am watching closely are:
NYM- Who will get the outfield playing time if/when Beltran gets traded, Duda or Fernando Martinez?
Duda is getting a little bit of 1B time right now too ...
ATL- Mike Minor likely gets to start if Derek Lowe is traded
Minor hasn't exactly been stellar in his opportunities this year, and he'll have Tehrehan and soon Medlen pushing him. I think Mike Minor gets first crack, but he is no lock for playing time this year.
SD- Who closes if Bell and Adams get traded? Gregerson? Qualls?
Id think Gregerson gets first crack then Frieri. The market seems to be flooded with relievers right, ie its a buyers market, so this leads me to beleive that Adams wont be dealt. Maybe this winter, or next July, but i just dont see anybody stepping up to get his services right now.
TB- Does Desmond Jennings get called up if Upton is traded?
I dont think Upton gets moved. Tampa is in the hunt, and Upton is playing well right now.
