Trade Deadline-Eve


So many deals have happened that; the days are starting to run together. Here’s the notes of what’s taken place since we last logged trades:

  • Brandon Moss from Cleveland to St. Louis for the Cardinals number three overall prospect, Rob Kaminsky. [Lets Go Tribe]
  • Cole Hamels is sent to the Rangers for five minor leaguers. [Grantland]
  • Mat Latos, Alex Wood, Jim Johnson, Jose Peraza, Luis Avilan and Mike Morse are headed to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 13-player, three-team deal. The Miami Marlins got three minor league arms, and the Atlanta Braves got a few side pieces in Hector Oliveras, Zach Bird, and Paco Rodriguez. [Dodgers Now]
  • The Pittsburgh Pirates traded some cash for Joe Blanton of the Royals.
  • Carlos Gomez was sent to the Mets for Wilmer Flores and Zach Wheeler. Except, no.
  • Carlos Gomez and Mike Fiers were traded to the Houston Astros with Brett Phillips and Domingo Santana being the marquee pieces headed to Milwaukee. {CBS Sports]
  • The Blue Jays went all-in in trading for David Price from the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers get three nice prospects in the deal. {MLB Trade Rumors]
  • Joakim Soria was sent to the Pirates from the Tigers for JaCoby Jones.
  • The Chicago White Sox are buying! And they paid cash to the Pirates for infielder Justin Sellers.
  • The Phillies traded Jake Diekman and Cole Hamels to the Texas Rangers for handful of prospects and Matt Harrison. []
  • The Yankees dealt for Dustin Ackley. [Seattle Times]
  • The Reds traded Mike Leake to the San Francisco Giants for a AAA slugger and another piece. {Diamond Hoggers]

To me, this has been the wildest trade deadline period in baseball history. I don’t remember one with more big deals before July 31st and this many huge names discussed. And there’s some huge stuff still in the works for tomorrow to be sure.

Aroldis Chapman, Yoenis Cespedes, Jay Bruce, Ben Revere, Craig Kimbrel, Gerardo Parra, Carlos Gonzalez, Tyson Ross, Jake Marisnick, Yovani Gallardo, Zach Wheeler, Carlos Carrasco and others have been rumored.

Tomorrow is going to be crazy.
