Who's ready to bet big on Bryce Harper or Manny Machado? Which teams are looking to wheel and deal? We tell you what might go down in the desert.
Some front offices have more work to do after deals while others are still plotting their first offseason strike. Here are eight areas that must be addressed by teams with playoff hopes.
In a swap of arbitration-eligible relievers, the Phillies have acquired left-hander Jose Alvarez from the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for right-hander Luis Garcia.

The Phillies have traded for Mariners All-Star infielder Jean Segura. The deal sends first baseman Carlos Santana and shortstop J.P. Crawford to Seattle.
Patrick Corbin to Washington, Josh Donaldson to Atlanta, Jean Segura to Philly, Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz to New York -- the NL East teams are going for it.

Mariners-Phillies quick analysis: Makes sense for both teams. The Phillies get a sure thing at shortstop in Jean Segura after ranking worst in the majors in WAR at the position in 2018 and clear first base for Rhys Hoskins. The Mariners get long-term salary relief while gambling that J.P. Crawford's glove will be good enough to carry a so-so bat. The Phillies take on more money, but the Mariners take on more risk as Crawford still has to prove himself.
First baseman Justin Bour and left-hander Luis Avilan were not offered 2019 contracts by the Phillies on Friday, making them free agents.
