Win-Win Prospect Packages for Top MLB Trade Targets Left on the Market

The MLB offseason has already given trade hounds plenty to chew on.

Much of the action has come courtesy of the Chicago White Sox, who shipped ace lefty Chris Sale to the Boston Red Sox and outfielder Adam Eaton to the Washington Nationals.

Many top targets remain on the board, however, and with the free-agent pool getting shallower, we can expect a few more seismic swaps before winter's end.

With that in mind, let's examine six players whose names have floated through the rumor mill and put together hypothetical win-win prospect packages for each.

Some of what follows is based on confirmed reports, some is pure speculation. All the players listed, however, have been the subject of credible trade chatter and would shift the balance of power if moved. 

One notable omission: Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen, who seems increasingly likely to stay put for the time being, with FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman reporting the Bucs have rejected at least one "nice offer" of prospects and are demanding "MLB now or MLB ready" talent.
