Noteworthy August 2011 Trades

The non-waiver trade deadline passed, but MLB teams will continue making deals this month. What kind of trades can we expect in August? Relievers and role players are often involved in August trades, while star-caliber players are likely to stay put. High-salaried players such as Alfonso Soriano could also be dealt in the next four weeks. MLBTR's Transaction Tracker offers a look back at which trades took place last August:

Jeff Francoeur, Brian Fuentes, Zach McAllister, Pedro Feliz, Derrek Lee, Mike Fontenot, Jim Edmonds and Mike Sweeney were all traded in August of 2010. The previous year saw Thome, Jon Garland, Jose Contreras, Ron Mahay, Scott Kazmir, Jon Rauch, Billy Wagner, Bill Hall, Ivan Rodriguez, Aubrey Huff, Alex Gonzalez and Carl Pavano get traded in August.

Note: I've excluded from this list players such as Manny Ramirez, Cody Ross and Alex Rios who were acquired in straight waiver claims.
