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...
While other divisions were selling, only one team in the NL West acted as sellers on the trade front and perhaps no division was more active in bringing in talent than the NL West. Even though the Padres did not make a trade, the five teams combined to complete 10 deals with Hunter Pence, Hanley Ramirez and Shane Victorino as the impact players joining the race out west.
- Acquired infielder Marco Scutaro and cash considerations from the Rockies in exchange for second baseman Charlie Culberson.
- Acquired outfielder Hunter Pence from the Phillies in exchange for outfielder Nate Schierholtz, catcher Tommy Joseph and right-handed pitcher Seth Rosen.
- Acquired third baseman Hanley Ramirez and reliever Randy Choate from the Marlins in exchange for right-handed starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi and right-handed reliever Scott McGough.
- Acquired right-handed reliever Brandon League from the Mariners in exchange for outfielder Leon Landry and right-handed pitcher Logan Bawcom.
- Acquired outfielder Shane Victorino from the Phillies in exchange for pitchers Josh Lindblom and Ethan Martin.
- Acquired future considerations from the Angels in exchange for right-handed reliever Barry Enright.
- Acquired third baseman Chris Johnson from the Astros in exchange for minor league outfielders Marc Krauss and Bobby Borchering.
- Acquired right-handed reliever Matt Albers and outfielder Scott Podsednik from the Red Sox in exchange for left-handed reliever Craig Breslow.
- The Padres did not make any trades.
