At this point in the winter, most of the major offseason shopping is complete. Yet while many MLB teams wouldn't mind filling that final hole before spring training, only a few teams still have surpluses that make them ideal trading partners. Recently, we've seen two deals intended in part to relieve such excesses as the Washington Nationals and Arizona Diamondbacks traded outfielders Michael Morse and Justin Upton, respectively.
With camp less than three weeks away, there are several other situations in which teams could deal from strength to fill more urgent needs. Not all of these teams will make moves, of course, but they're all in good position to do so if they choose.
Mike Petriello of FanGraphs looks at teams with a surplus to trade at certain positions, and identifies some potential trading partners.
