All Stars Acquired Since 2009

So, there's been an awful lot of talk lately about how baseball's All Star Game has become a bit watered down- 84 players have been selected for this year's game given the large number of players that have bowed out of the game. With 11.2% of MLB's 750 on-roster players taking part in the game, some of noted that it's losing meaning over time, either to us or to the players.

But among all of those guys, all 84 of them, which ones have been acquired recently, and how? Let's take a look.
