MLB Trade Deadline Transactions

Here is the rundown of the crazy trade deadline moves that went down.  It was one of the busiest in history which makes it fun for those of us in the baseball world. 

I will start with the team that I cover the New York Yankees.  They made a trade with the Boston  Red Sox which is crazy enough.  It was the first trade between the arch rivals since 1997.  Stephen Drew came to the Yankees to play second base and audition for what will be a vacant shortstop next year.  The Yankees sent Kelly Johnson to the Red Sox.  The Yankee also acquired Martin Prado from the Arizona Diamondbacks for AA prospect Peter O'Brien. 

The Boston Red Sox were the most active team.  They traded pitchers Felix Doubront, Jon Lester and John Lackey.  They traded Lester and Jonny Gomes to the Oakland Athletics for Yoenis Cespedes.  They traded Lackey and minor league pitcher Corey Littrell to the St. Louis Cardinals for pitcher Joe Kelly and outfielder Allen Craig.   The Red Sox also traded reliver Andrew Miller to the Baltimore Orioles for Eduardo Rodriguez a minor league pitcher. 

The Marlins acquired Jarred Cosart, Enrique Hernandez, Austin Wates from the Houston Astros for Jake Marisnick, Colin Moran, Francis Martes and a 2015 competitive balance pick. 

Atlanta Braves acquired James Russell, Emilio Bonifacio from the Chicago Cubs for Victor Caratini

Washington Nationals acquired Asdrubal Cabrera from the Cleveland Indians for Zach Walters. 

The Seattle Mariners acquired Chris Denorfia from the San Diego Padres for Stephen Kohlscheen and Abraham Almonte. 

Minnesota Twins acquire Tommy Milone from the A's for Sam Fuld. 

Brewers acquire Gerardo Parra from D-backs for Mitch Haniger and Anthony Banda.

Wow what a day, at least you have the complete list to refer to now.  I even needed a list as I couldn't remember them all.  It should be a fun final couple of months and now we have to watch the waiver wire to see if anyone will get through and more trades happen in August.
