Plenty of winners and losers at the trade deadline, including Braves new third baseman Hector Olivera. Scott White looks at some of the players whose Fantasy value has changed the most.
They aren't the biggest names, but the trades of Dan Haren and Ben Revere could have an impact for Fantasy players yet.
The Mets got the big bat they've been coveting, and now they have some questions to sort out in their outfield that could have Fantasy implications.
Gerardo Parra has been very good this season, but his role has limited his Fantasy appeal somewhat. That should change in Baltimore, Chris Towers says at the Fantasy Baseball Today blog.
Moving from one of the worst pitcher's parks to one of the best could keep Mike Leake on the Fantasy radar all the way down the stretch.
