The MLB Trade Deadline is in early August, but the Arizona Diamondbacks may have to make some tough decisions before then.

The D-backs are hovering around .500 and will hopefully be contending for one of three wild card spots.

However, if they fall out of contention, they have a few intriguing trade chips.

ESPN MLB insider Jeff Passan listed 148 names you need to know before the MLB Trade Deadline and mentioned a few key Diamondbacks who could be on the move if Arizona decides to sell.

Could they capitalize on Christian Walker’s power surge?

Will they take advantage of David Peralta’s expiring contract?

Steve Zinsmeister and Cody Fincher discuss on “The Ain’t No Fang Podcast” which D-backs could draw the most interest from contending teams.
