August Trade Tracker

One place where we keep track of every waiver-wire deal that is completed in August.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

This July was one of the busiest in recent memory, with 41 major-league trades being completed before the clock struck 4 PM ET on the last day of the month. Major stars like Troy Tulowitzki, David Price, Cole Hamels, Johnny Cueto and Carlos Gomez were dealt in July, but that doesn't mean the dealing is done. Some significant players get dealt in August, though those trades are more complicated due to the waiver rules in place.

We'll keep track of all August trades here:
