Chicago White Sox receive: RHP Craig Kimbrel
Chicago Cubs receive: 2B Nick Madrigal, RHP Codi Heuer
The White Sox made a big splash in the pitching market, acquiring Cubs closer Craig Kimbrel one day after adding Ryan Tepera from their cross-town neighbours. Alongside Liam Hendriks, the White Sox now have one of the most talented bullpens in baseball.
Kimbrel, 33, is under club control through 2022. After two seasons below his normal standards, Kimbrel has bounced back in a big way this season with a 0.49 ERA, 64 strikeouts and 23 saves in 39 games for the Cubs.

Milwaukee Brewers receive: LHP Daniel Norris
Detroit Tigers receive: RHP Reese Olson
The Milwaukee Brewers hold a seven-game lead atop of the NL Central and added some depth to their bullpen by acquiring Daniel Norris.
Although he's sporting a 1-3 record with a 5.89 ERA in 38 games this season, the 28-year-old Norris hasn't given up a run or even a hit in his past five relief appearances. Norris was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2011 and sent to the Tigers in the David Price trade in 2015.

The 31-year-old Galvis is heading back to the city of brotherly love where he made his big league debut in 2012 and spent the first six seasons of his career.

He hit .229/.277/.478 with 22 home runs in 90 games with Miami this season.
Atlanta Braves receive: OF Eddie Rosario

The Atlanta Braves boosted their outfield depth by acquiring Rosario, a speedy left fielder. In exchange, the veteran first baseman Pablo Sandoval will go to Cleveland.
Rosario, 29, is hitting .254/.296/.389 with 15 doubles and seven home runs this season, but has been out with an injury since July 6. This was his first season in Cleveland after starting his career with six years in Minnesota.
Toronto Blue Jays receive: RHP Jose Berrios
Minnesota Twins receive: SS/OF Austin Martin, RHP Simeon Woods-Richardson
In Berrios, the Blue Jays acquired one of the most sought-after names on the trade market -- and paid a high prospect price to do so.
Berrios, who is under contract through the 2022 season, has a 3.48 ERA with 9.3 K/9 and 2.4 BB/9 in 121.2 innings.
Both Martin and Woods-Richardson are top-100 prospects and were in the top 10 of Blue Jays' prospects.
Tampa Bay Rays receive: RHP Shawn Armstrong
Baltimore Orioles receive: Cash
Los Angeles Dodgers receive: LHP Danny Duffy
Kanas City Royals receive: Player to be named later
Duffy will provide some depth starts for the defending World Series champions. The 32-year-old has a 2.51 ERA in 32 starts with the Royals this season, but is currently out of the lineup with a left flexor strain.
San Diego Padres receive: RHP Daniel Hudson
Washington Nationals receive: RHP Mason Thompson, SS Jordy Barley
Hours after moving closer Brad Hand, the Nationals sold off another key bullpen piece in Daniel Hudson. After bouncing around the majors, Hudson found a home with the Nationals with the highlight of his career when he closed out Game 7 of the World Series in 2019.
Hudson, 34, has a 2.20 ERA and 48 strikeouts in 31 appearances with the Nationals this season.
Boston Red Sox receive: OF Kyle Schwarber
Washington Nationals receive: RHP Aldo Ramirez
After watching their Yankees rivals add Gallo and Rizzo, the Red Sox went out and got their own left-handed slugger in outfielder Kyle Schwarber. The all-star Schwarber was one of the hottest hitters in baseball earlier this season but has been on the injured list since early July with a strained hamstring.
Schwarber, 28, has 25 home runs and 53 RBIs in 72 games this season.
New York Yankees receive: 1B Anthony Rizzo
Chicago Cubs receive: RHP Alexander Vizcaino, OF Kevin Alcantara
Following the move to add Gallo, the Yankees added another left-handed slugger in Cubs icon Anthony Rizzo. While Rizzo isn't at the same level he was when the Cubs won the 2016 World Series, he was one of the top hitters available on the trade market.
Rizzo is batting .248 with 14 home runs and 40 RBIs.
Toronto Blue Jays receive: LHP Brad Hand
Washington Nationals receive: C Riley Adams
The Blue Jays have been aggressively searching for bullpen help all season and Brad Hand, the Nationals' closer, is the latest addition on that front.
In 42.2 innings for Washington, Hand has a 3.59 ERA with 42 strikeouts compared to 18 walks and just 31 hits allowed.
Chicago White Sox receive: RHP Ryan Tepera
Chicago Cubs receive: LHP Bailey Horn
The Cubs and White Sox pulled off a rare inter-city trade, giving the White Sox one of the top relief players on the market. Tepera, 33, is 0-2 with a 2.91 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 43 1/3 innings this season.
"It's kind of a unique thing for a trade to happen between crosstown rivals. I'm excited," Tepera said. "Obviously going to a first-place team, playoff contention, I'm looking forward to it."
Chicago White Sox receive: 2B Cesar Hernandez
Cleveland receive: LHP Konnor Pilkington
Cleveland conceded the AL Central race by trading slugging second baseman Cesar Hernandez to the Chicago White Sox. Hernandez has 18 home runs this season and will help the White Sox in a position of weakness after some earlier injuries. The White Sox have had an eight-game lead in the division on second-place Cleveland entering play Friday.
"We made the trade that we felt made the most sense for us and this is the direction we went," Cleveland president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti said. "Just as we tried to be realistic in assessing where we are, we're going to continue to do our best to win as many games as possible.
"But the reality is the White Sox are a number of games in front of us and we're intent on improving. If they didn't acquire Cesar, we were pretty confident they were going to acquire another talented player from another team."
New York Yankees receive: OF Joey Gallo and LHP Joely Rodriguez
Texas Rangers receive: RHP Glenn Otto, 2B/SS Ezequiel Duran, 2B/LF Trevor Hauver, 2B Josh Smith
The Yankees added left-handed all-star slugger Joey Gallo in a trade with the Rangers. The move helps the Yankees balance their right-handed dominant lineup and gives them outfield depth to make up for a number of injuries.
"Sign me up for the guy that's on base almost 40 per cent of the time and has power and provides the kind of potential balance for our lineup," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Thursday. "And on top of it, he's a two-way player. This is a guy that really defends, can run and do all those things. It's hard to argue that we're not a lot better team adding Joey Gallo to us."
