Here are 10 prospects in contenders' organizations who could be attractive trade bait over the next three weeks as their teams look to stock up for a postseason run. You can monitor all the chatter over deals at MLB Rumor Central as well.

Yonder Alonso, 1B, Cincinnati Reds (Triple-A Louisville)
Joey Votto, the Reds' big league 1B, is a legitimate NL MVP candidate. Alonso has yet to put up impressive numbers in the minors, with a career line of .279/.356/.431. He is 22-for-55 (.400) in his last 13 games, however, so he could be a chip to move now. He has only 18 home runs in 178 games, which is a concern, but he was the No. 7 overall pick in the 2008 MLB draft, so a team interested in reputation and pedigree may take a chance on him.
