Keep up with the madness of the MLB trade deadline right here.

The 2015 MLB trade deadline is on July 31, but so far it’s been a quiet trading season. The first trade domino to fall didn’t happen until July 23, and while there are plenty of rumors since then, it appears that the larger pieces won’t fall until the deadline approaches. For Yasiel Puig, he may not be on the chopping block at all as the Dodgers have reportedly told the outfielder that he will not be traded. Of course, it’s trading season so that might not mean a thing.

There have been a couple of smaller trades already, such as the Marlins-Cardinals trade for Steve Cishek in exchange for a minor league pitcher, and the Braves-Mets trade involving Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson for two minor league righties. However, the bigger pieces have yet to fall.

Among those are Reds’ starter Johnny Cueto and closer Aroldis Chapman, however, there are rumors among the league that Cueto may be injured. If that turns out to be the case, his trade value could drop, but how that will ultimately affect the trade deadline is still to be determined.

Add to Phillies’ Cole Hamels and Jonathan Papelbon, both who are on the trade market, and you have the makings of potentially large deals. Papelbon, in particular, has been the subject of trade talks since nearly the start of the season, and the righty has been more vocal of late about the team making a decision in regards to his future.

Another large piece up in the air is potential trade candidate, Detroit Tigers ace David Price. There have been rumors stating that he’ll likely be traded, and also that he won’t, that the team is attempting to sign him to a long-term extension.

Price’s teammate, Yoenis Cespedes, has also popped up as a major trade candidate, though he sits somewhat in the same boat as Price as far as rumors are concerned. The team has been rumored to be considering a long-term extension with him, but it’s also rumored that the Tigers would potentially trade him with the intention of resigning him after this year as a free agent.

We’ll be keeping track of all important rumors leading up to the July 31 deadline. Click here for a list of completed trades.
