Stars on the move on busy Deadline Day
Days after Cliff Lee was dealt to the Phils, fellow former Cy Young winner Jake Peavy was traded to the White Sox. He was one of many big names moved at the Trade Deadline as Victor Martinez was dealt to Boston, Scott Rolen was traded to Cincinnati, Jarrod Washburn headed to Detroit and Orlando Cabrera was sent to Minnesota. Perhaps the biggest name rumored to be on the move, Toronto's Roy Halladay, stayed put. Full story >

Notable Deals
July 31
Player to Red Sox
Players to Indians
The Deal: Boston lands a terrific switch-hitter, versatile player and solid clubhouse influence -- but not necessarily Jason Varitek's heir apparent behind plate. Martinez has increasingly been splitting his time at first, but that means he also provides added insurance for Mike Lowell's balky hip, freeing Kevin Youkilis to play across the diamond. Martinez is a near-.300 career hitter with comparable power from both sides. For all that, the Sox paid a steep price in a trio of former high-draft choices with high ceilings. Masterson (2nd round '06) has already made his big-league mark (9-8 in Boston, with a solid ERA), Price (1st round '08) has both closing and starting experience and Hagadone (1st round '07) is already pushing triple-digits on the radar in his comeback from Tommy John surgery.

July 31
Player to White Sox
Players to Padres
The Deal: The Padres have been trying to deal Peavy and his $63 million guaranteed contract since last winter and the former Cy Young Award winner, because of a blanket no-trade clause, turned down a deal to the Pale Hose as recently as the end of May. He's been on the disabled list since June 13 with a strained tendon in his right foot and the big question is when he'll be ready to pitch in Chicago? In exchange, the Padres get four young pitchers to restock their system, including one -- Richard -- who has pitched 26 games (14 starts) for the Sox this season. The others have all toiled in the Minor Leagues.

on the block
1B, Adam Dunn, WAS
Last year, Dunn was dealt from the Reds to the D-backs after the Trade Deadline in August, and it's possible the slugger could be moved in a waiver deal again. The Nationals are well out of the race and may want to recoup some of the cost of the two-year, $20 million deal they signed him to before this season.

LHP, Doug Davis, ARI
Set to become a free agent following this season, the veteran southpaw has pitched well all season and would be an attractive option for a rental down the stretch.

LHP, Erik Bedard, SEA
Bedard was placed on the disabled list days before the Trade Deadline. But he could find himself moved in a waiver deal as the Mariners might look to find a return with the southpaw eligible for free agency this offseason.
