MLB power rankings: Trade rumors are flying as the deadline approaches

As the glow of the All-Star Game fades into the rearview mirror, it’s time to buckle down for the second half. The next week will be dominated by trade rumors and speculation before the Aug. 2 deadline, and the postseason race will continue to heat up with each passing day. As we refine our focus, there will be a slight tweak to the formatting here at Power Rankings HQ: Starting with this week’s release, we’ll forego writing announcements for each club and instead dive a little deeper into a handful of each iteration. (Don’t worry, we’ll keep the rotation balanced so each team still gets some love.)
