[] 8 trade candidates on the rise — and where they could go

Zach Davies, SP, D-backs Davies pitched to an ERA close to 5.00 during the first two months of the season, but the right-hander has been much better in June, compiling a 2.56 ERA in five starts. At 29, Davies is earning $1.5 million in 2022 and has a mutual option for 2023 that will likely send him back to free agency, making him a solid option for the middle to back end of a contending rotation.
