With the August 1, 6 pm trade deadline approaching for MLB teams (no team will be playing at that moment, the first games on August 1 starts 40 minutes after the deadline), we have six new moves to add to our list of trades and 60 day DLS from yesterday's post.
The big winners today were the Dodgers, who picked up a strong PB 2-8 card for Joe Kelly back from the White Sox, and also grabbed what will be a solid middle reliever in our 4-man rotation league in Lance Lynn. The Dodgers already have the best record in our league (in real MLB play they are 2nd to the Braves, while the Braves are 3rd in Statis-Pro). The Dodgers are looking like our big NL favorite pending moves the next three days.
The Astros gained a nice reliever in Kendall Graveman, also from the White Sox and like Kelly returning to a team. The Marlins also picked up a nice card in reliever David Robertson, who has been even better in the real season. The Marlins have the only downside, as Matt Barnes will not be used in our games because he is not on 60 day DL - and while we keep a player card if they drop to the 40 man roster or short DL, we stop using them if they are on the 60 day DL
The only batter to change was the Rangers getting Kevin Plawecki from the Padres (and Pirates beginning of the year), but he is really just a backup for a loaded Rangers line-up. Click here for yesterday's post on 12 Statis-Pro cards changing status or team. Rules for the game appear below.
