In what has been one of the busiest trade deadlines in recent years, it's easy to get lost in all the trades being completed. With that being said, let's round up all the trades that did go down in the month of July division-by-division...
The NL East had the most active as well as the quietest teams on the trade front in the month of July. The Nationals did not make a single move and the Mets only subtracted from their team, yet the Marlins and Phillies traded some of their top players as part of a youth movement. The five teams in total made 13 trades in the month of July, headlined by Paul Maholm joining the NL East and Hanley Ramirez exiting.
