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 Central featured two teams in a complete rebuild phase, making it for some great trade action. Each team in the NL Central completed at least two trades and the only six-team division combined to complete 18 (!) deals. From swapping replacement-level players to ten-player deals to dealing an ace, the NL Central was the most active division on the trade front this year.
