When it comes to fantasy baseball, every real life decision carries consequences in your leagues. In order to best position your teams for the stretch run of the season, be ready for the value of some players to change dramatically over the next few weeks.

Here are five prospects or current MLB players who could see an increase in fantasy value between now and the non-waiver trade deadline.
For Major League Baseball teams, the annual trade deadline is a battle between the present and future for executives, managers and players...

The following five event ideas could spruce up the All-Star week festivities and give baseball a fresh look for new, impressionable eyes.

When reading, suspend the notion reality for a few minutes. No, owners and general managers wouldn't want or allow their players to subject themselves to injury, especially for the running and throwing contests. If they did, however, baseball's mid-summer event would be a better and more interesting product for fans.

Coupled with allowing nine hits and four earned runs last week in Minnesota, Tanaka has now allowed nine runs over his last two starts. Over 37 innings in the month of June, the 25-year-old allowed a total of nine runs and entered July with a streak of 16 consecutive quality starts.
Masahiro Tanaka is human. After opening his major league career with three months of brilliant outings, the New York Yankees rookie has hit a wall in July...

It's time to sell in Philadelphia, these aren't your 2007 Yankees and Rick Porcello's path to riches.
The marathon feel of Major League Baseball's 162-game season can be broken down into easily digestible and debatable segments. As the 2014 campaign enters the stretch run of the first half of the season, let's take a look back on the last week of action.

While baseball routinely provides breakout stories that are nearly impossible to believe, Pearce's season is truly remarkable. From 2007-2013, Pearce hit 17 career home runs at the big league level. In 157 at-bats this summer, he's hit 10 more.

If the numbers don't blow you away, consider this: Baltimore designated Pearce for assignment in April, leaving the versatile outfielder and first baseman out of work for two days. Eventually, the team actually released him before re-inking a deal. 
The Baltimore Orioles are tied for first place in the American League East, thanks to the bat of one of the unlikeliest breakout candidates in recent memory...

Yet, with just under half of the season to play, not every projected award winner will continue to play at a high level. Injury or dips in performance could arrive, opening the door for dark horse candidates to emerge and take home the hardware.

Here are the six players to watch over the next three months. By November, don't be shocked if one or more takes home a major award from the 2014 season.
As the 2014 Major League Baseball All-Star Game approaches, the major narratives of the season have been well-established...

On Sunday, general manger Brian Cashman acted aggressively, changing the Yankees roster in a way that can be described right now as more desperation than brilliance.
As the Yankees took the field on Sunday afternoon at Target Field in Minnesota , a stark reality faced a team struggling to climb over .500: the depth of legitimate American League contenders...

When dissecting how much of a difference Sabathia can mean to a postseason push in the Bronx, it's instructive to look at two factors: how the veteran was truly performing before hitting the shelf and a track record of success across the second half of seasons.
When CC Sabathia hit the disabled list on May 11, the 33-year-old lefty sported a 5.28 ERA. At that moment, a case could have been made that the former Cy Young winner was hurting the team on a start-by-start basis...
