In a 60-game baseball season -- with expanded playoffs, to boot -- which teams are buyers and which teams are sellers?

Monday's 4 p.m. ET MLB trade deadline has come and gone, providing teams with a defining moment to decide their direction for the rest of the year. Now that the dust has settled, allow Sportsnet to catch you up on every trade that was made today.

Toronto Blue Jays receive: P Ross Stripling

Los Angeles Dodgers receive: Two players to be named later

Stripling, 30, comes to Toronto after posting career-worst numbers in ERA (5.61) and walk rate (2.9 per nine innings) this season. He also leads the majors with 12 home runs allowed.

But in five seasons with the Dodgers, Stripling has a career 3.68 ERA and 3.89 FIP. He was named to the NL All-Star team in 2018.

New York Mets receive: 3B Todd Frazier, C Robinson Chirinos and cash considerations

Texas Rangers receive: Two players to be named later

Frazier rejoins the Mets, where he played from 2018-19 and hit 39 home runs while accruing a league-average 100 OPS+. Chirinos ended his second stint in Texas in disappointing fashion, having posted a .119/.224/.143 slash line in 14 games this season.

Both players are on track to become free agents when the 2020 season is over.

New York Mets receive: P Miguel Castro

Baltimore Orioles receive: P Kevin Smith

Initially a Blue Jays signee, Castro has enjoyed a 110 ERA+ since joining the Orioles in 2017. This season, he is 1-0 with a 4.02 ERA and a career-high 13.8 strikeouts per nine innings.

Smith, a seventh-round selection from 2018, is 12-8 with a 2.75 ERA across his first two minor league seasons — extending as high as double-A.

Chicago Cubs receive: P Andrew Chafin and cash considerations

Arizona Diamondbacks receive: Either a player to be named later or cash considerations

The sample size is small, but 2020 has been Andrew Chafin's most challenging season to date. In 11 relief outings, the 30-year-old left-hander has an 8.10 ERA with 10 strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings.

Chafin was a first-round selection by the Diamondbacks in 2011, and now he's leaving the only MLB organization he's ever known in search of a bounce-back with the Cubs. He has a 3.68 ERA across seven seasons, with 9.5 strikeouts per nine innings.

Chicago Cubs receive: P Josh Osich

Boston Red Sox receive: Either a player to be named later or cash considerations

Osich, 31, has spent most of his career in San Francisco, but he came to the Red Sox this past off-season and is 1-1 with a 5.74 ERA in 15 2/3 innings in 2020.

The left-hander remains under team control through 2022.

Chicago Cubs receive: OF Cameron Maybin

Detroit Tigers receive: INF Zack Short

The 33-year-old Maybin has now come and gone from the Tigers three times in his career, and this time he lands with the National League Central-leading Cubs.

Maybin, who will hit free agency this off-season, has posted a .244/.311/.415 slash line in 14 games this season while primarily playing right field. The Cubs are his ninth MLB organization.

Short, a 17th-round pick from 2016, had a .767 OPS across three minor league levels (including triple-A) last season.

Cincinnati Reds receive: OF Brian Goodwin

Los Angeles Angels receive: P Packy Naughton and either a player to be named later or cash considerations

Brian Goodwin has a 114 OPS+ in 30 games for the Angels this season, and carries two more years of team control with him on the way to Cincinnati.

The 29-year-old, who was the 34th overall pick in the 2011 draft by the Washington Nationals, hit 17 home runs in 136 games for the Angels last season.

Naughton, a ninth-round pick in 2017, posted a 3.32 ERA across multiple levels of minor league ball last season.

Cincinnati Reds receive: P Archie Bradley

Arizona Diamondbacks receive: UTIL Josh VanMeter, OF Stuart Fairchild

Bradley is a starter-turned-closer who has a career 3.96 ERA in six seasons with Arizona. This season, he as a 4.22 ERA — with 12 strikeouts in 10 2/3 innings — while saving six games in seven opportunities.

VanMeter has gone just 2-for-34 (.059) for the Reds so far this season, but the 25-year-old is only in his second MLB season. Fairchild, meanwhile, posted a .794 OPS across advanced-A and double-A in 2019.

Milwaukee Brewers receive: P David Phelps

Philadelphia Phillies receive: Multiple players to be named later

Phelps will reunite with Phillies skipper Joe Girardi, who coached the right-hander from 2012-14 with the Yankees. This season has been one of Phelps' best, as he has a 2.77 ERA and 13.8 strikeouts per nine innings in 12 relief appearances.

After this season, Phelps has a team option on his contract worth $4.5 million (which, alternatively, would be a $250,000 buyout).

Colorado Rockies receive: OF Kevin Pillar

Boston Red Sox receive: A player to be named later, 2019-20 international slot money

Pillar is off to his fourth team in two seasons, as the Rockies bring him in for added outfield depth. The former Blue Jay, who will be a free agent at season's end, has posted a .274/.325/.470 slash line in 30 games this season.

So far, Pillar's 109 OPS+ in 2020 is the best mark of his career. He has spent time in all three outfield positions for the Red Sox.

Toronto Blue Jays receive: UTIL Jonathan Villar

Miami Marlins receive: OF Griffin Conine

In their second deal of the day, the Blue Jays acquired the speedy, versatile Villar for 2018 second-round pick Griffin Conine.

Villar leads the majors in stolen bases (nine) while posting a 90 OPS+ in 29 games with Miami this season. He has started at shortstop, second base and centre field this season, and figures to fill in primarily on the infield as the Blue Jays await the return of shortstop Bo Bichette.

The 29-year-old Villar will hit free agency after this season.

Conine, the son of former Marlin Jeff Conine, hit .283/.371/.576 with 22 home runs at low-A for the Blue Jays in 2019.

Miami Marlins receive: OF Starling Marte

Arizona Diamondbacks receive: P Caleb Smith, P Humberto Mejia and P Julio Frias

Marte, a two-time Gold Glove award winner, is having one of his best offensive seasons to date. He has posted a .311/.384/.443 slash line in 33 games in his first season with the Diamondbacks, while stealing five bases and collecting 14 RBIs.

Marte will be a free agent at the end of the year.

Neither Mejia nor Smith were on the Marlins' active roster at the time of the trade, but both have pitched in 2020. Mejia is 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA in 10 innings, while Smith is 0-0 with a 3.00 ERA in three innings.

Frias, 21, has yet to surpass the low-A level.

Toronto Blue Jays receive: P Robbie Ray, cash considerations

Arizona Diamondbacks receive: P Travis Bergen

In Ray, the Blue Jays gain a pitcher amid his worst season who still possesses the coveted ability to strike batters out.

Ray, who will become a free agent after this season, leads the National League in earned runs (27) and walks (31). He is 1-4 with a 7.84 ERA in seven starts.

But with all that said, he sports a blistering 43 strikeouts in 31 innings. Over the past five seasons, Ray is striking out 11.9 batters per nine innings, which is well above league average.

In return for Ray, the Diamondbacks receive Bergen, who tossed a scoreless 1 2/3 innings of relief in his lone outing for the Blue Jays this season. Bergen remains under team control through 2025.

Oakland Athletics receive: P Mike Minor

Texas Rangers receive: Two players to be named later

The A's are taking a flier on Minor, a 32-year-old whose contract expires at the end of this season. Minor was an all-star last year for the first time (14-10, 3.59 ERA, 200 strikeouts), but has faltered this year to an 0-5 record and 5.60 ERA in seven outings.

If Oakland continues using Minor in the rotation, he'll join fellow lefties Sean Manaea and Jesus Luzardo.

San Diego Padres receive: P Mike Clevinger, OF Greg Allen and a player to be named later

Cleveland Indians receive: P Cal Quantrill, 1B/OF Josh Naylor, C Austin Hedges, SS Gabriel Arias, LHP Joey Cantillo and SS Owen Miller

A whopper of a trade, featuring one of the day's most talked-about names in Clevinger. The 29-year-old righty is off to San Diego, taking his 3.18 ERA over four starts with him.

Clevinger is arbitration-eligible for two more years and can hit free agency in 2023. For as potent as the Padres have been offensively, they lag behind other top teams in pitching (4.44 team ERA, 15th in MLB).

Among the haul returning to Cleveland are two young Canadians, Cal Quantrill (Port Hope, Ont.) and Josh Naylor (Mississauga, Ont.). Quantrill, 25, is 2-0 with a 2.60 ERA out of the bullpen. Naylor, 23, is batting .278 with a 102 OPS+ in 18 games.

San Diego Padres receive: 1B Mitch Moreland

Boston Red Sox receive: OF Jeisson Rosario, INF Hudson Potts

Moreland, who turns 35 next week, led the Red Sox in batting average (.328), home runs (eight) and RBIs (21). He is also eligible to be a free agent as early as 2021, though his contract carries a $3-million team option for that season.

Playing for a Boston team that is well out of contention made Moreland a prime trade target, and he lands with a Padres team that already leads the majors in OPS (.836).

Atlanta Braves receive: P Tommy Milone

Baltimore Orioles receive: Two players to be named later

Milone was the opening-day starter for the fading Orioles, who got off to a surprisingly hot start but have since sunken back to fourth in the American League East. Now, evidently, they are sellers.

The 33-year-old was 1-4 with a 3.99 ERA in six starts for Baltimore this season. He had a chance to impress his new club right away on Sunday, making his debut start against the Philadelphia Phillies, but he allowed seven runs in just 2 1/3 innings.
