Most of baseball's top free agents have already found new teams, but the MLB trade market is just as strong as ever, as some of the most dynamic operators in the game could still be on the move.

According to insider Ken Rosenthal, Boston Red Sox superstar Mookie Betts is more likely that not to be traded this offseason. In addition, he suggested that between third basemen Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs and Nolan Arenado of the Colorado Rockies, Bryant is a stronger bet to be dealt himself.

The Red Sox have been shopping the 2018 AL MVP, with the San Diego Padres the team that has been the most aggressive in pursuing Betts of late.

Bryant, still on the fritz with the Cubs thanks to his service time grievance, has also been floated as a frequent trade target despite the fact that former teammate David Ross is now the manager on the North Side.

Arenado might have taken some very public shots at the Rockies for how they handled putting his name out there in offseason trade rumors, but it sounds like he (and Twins star Francisco Lindor, for that matter) are increasingly likely to stay put.

We could be in for some seismic shakeups in the baseball landscape, as, if we are to take Rosenthal at his word, two former MVPs could be on the move to close out what has been an occasionally hectic offseason.
