Best trade fits for remaining available options

1d

This year's trade deadline has indeed been exciting and active, with more contract dollars and top-of-rotation starters being exchanged than ever before … and the trading is not over, as teams have until 4 p.m. ET to trade before the players must pass through waivers.

We have seen some of the game's biggest names dealt, such as Troy Tulowitzki, David Price, Johnny Cueto, Cole Hamels, Scott Kazmir, Jonathan Papelbon, Mike Leake, Jose Reyes, Carlos Gomez and Ben Zobrist. But there are still several big-name players remaining who could get moved. Let's take a look at those big names, and the best trade fits for them:

Closers

Aroldis Chapman, LHP, Cincinnati Reds
Craig Kimbrel, RHP, San Diego Padres
Francisco Rodriguez, RHP, Milwaukee Brewers

Best team fits: New York Yankees, Houston Astros, Toronto Blue Jays, Arizona Diamondbacks and Chicago Cubs.

The Yankees and Astros are considered the most likely landing spot for Kimbrel, with many executives thinking the Yankees will swoop in at the last minute and pry him away from the Padres.
