The Yankees also beat the deadline with this:
The Astros and Marlins made a multi-player trade:
The Red Sox traded yet another pitcher:
Cleveland swapped shortstops with the Washington Nationals:
The Seattle Mariners landed San Diego Padres outfielder Chris Denorfia, who reportedly had been on the Royals’ radar:

The Cardinals added Red Sox starting pitcher John Lackey in what seems like a minor move compared to the other earthquake:
The Twins sent outfielder Sam Fuld to Oakland for pitcher Tommy Milone:
