We have now entered the portion of the MLB season when baseball fans will be checking Twitter every five minutes to see which veterans are being moved and which prospects are headed the other way in deals between rebuilding teams and playoff contenders.

Like every year, some big names are on the trade market. Here’s a look at the latest talk surrounding a highly coveted starting pitcher and two sluggers.

With the Oakland Athletics last in the American League West, they’ll almost certainly move some proven veterans in return for prized prospects.

Thankfully for A’s executive vice president of baseball operations Billy Beane, he has many suitors for Gray’s services, as numerous teams have holes in their starting rotation due to injury or ineffectiveness.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported that the Milwaukee Brewers have interest:
