Can't tell the names without a program

Poor and/or rebuilding teams will sometimes have big turnover as they shed contracts and guys who can bring assets in return, but even so the Pittsburgh Prates' transformation over the last year plus has been remarkable. They have only three players remaining on the current 25 man roster (as of August 6) from their 25 man roster on July 24 of last year: Ryan Doumit, Paul Maholm and Zach Duke. The others and how they left, courtesy of research done by John Lewis:

LF Jason Bay: traded to Boston 2008
CF Nate McLouth: traded to Atlanta 2009
RF Xavier Nady: traded to Yankees 2008
OF Jason Michaels: free agency 2008
