Jayson Stark lists the players that have passed through waivers and can be traded.

The list includes some crappy pitchers but some decent outfielders. Richard Hidalgo, Jose Cruz Jr and Dmitri Young (who can also play 1B and 3B) pop out for me.

Interesting infielders mentioned include Bret Boone, Shea Hillenbrand, Mike Sweeney and Tino Martinez.

I'd like to see the Rays trade Cruz to Giants or Phillies so they can make room for Jonny Gomes (who I think needs to get a shot).

I think the Giants, Atlanta or LA could put Dmitri Young or Mike Sweeney to good use (though Sweeney might be better off in the AL where he can DH due to back issues).
