A little more than a month into the pandemic-shortened 60-game MLB season, the trade deadline has already come and gone.
Despite the small sample sizes teams had to work with, Monday’s deadline was full of transactions.
The San Diego Padres, who were very active over the weekend, continued to dominate headlines by acquiring Mike Clevinger from the Cleveland Indians in a blockbuster. The Miami Marlins made a surprising acquisition of star outfielder Starling Marte as they look to continue their unexpected hunt for a playoff spot.
North of the border, the Toronto Blue Jays supplemented last week’s additions of Taijuan Walker and Daniel Vogelbach with starting pitcher Robbie Ray and speedy utility man Jonathan Villar. They also made a last-minute deal for right-handed starter Ross Stripling.
If you missed any of the action, here’s a full recap of the day’s moves, starting with the three Blue Jays trades.
