Fantasy Baseball 2012: Trade Deadline Analysis Part 2

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

Following up to the previous article I had written to cover the trade deadline; this will cover the rest of the fantasy notable trades that happened at or near the deadline. It was a rather light fantasy altering trade deadline, but there were a few changes as I noted in the previous article and these are the rest of the deals that may make a difference on your fantasy team.

ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS GET: 3B Chris Johnson
