Notable Deals
  • Orioles boost rotation with Norris

    July 31: Having already added Scott Feldman to the rotation and Francisco Rodriguez to the bullpen, the O's made another splash just before the non-waiver Trade Deadline, dealing for the heavily pursued Norris. Southpaw Josh Hader (O's No. 5 prospect) and speedy outfielder Hoe (No. 7) give Houston a further injection of youth.

  • D-backs deal Kennedy to Padres

    July 31: The NL West-rival D-backs and Padres improved their respective weaknesses on their pitching staffs with a swap just prior to the Deadline. In Kennedy, the Padres -- who have a pair of starters on the DL -- receive a former 21-game winner who's under club control through 2015. And with plenty of rotation depth, the D-backs are able to bulk up a bullpen that has struggled all season long.

    July 29: Addressing their greatest need, adding left-handed depth to an already strong but heavily worked bullpen, the Braves added the veteran lefty Downs in a deal with the Angels.

  • Rays gamble on injured Crain

    July 29: The Rays rolled the dice on All-Star Crain, who had been one of the game's most effective relievers in baseball before going down with a right shoulder strain. He should give the club a boost down the stretch if the Rays medical staff can help return the righty to full health. Future compensation to the White Sox depends on Crain's performance.

  • Red Sox boost 'pen with Thornton

    July 12: Thornton provides a Boston bullpen lacking depth with a formidable left-handed option. The trade comes six days after losing left-handed reliever Andrew Miller to season-ending foot surgery.
