And Deadline Deals Rain Down: Lucroy to Rangers, Bruce to Mets, Moore, More
We’re right at the wire, so if you’re forgive protocol for a moment, here are the deals I’m seeing on Twitter reported as done or going to be done:
- Jonathan Lucroy and Jeremy Jeffress to the Rangers
- Jay Bruce to the Mets
- Scott Feldman to the Blue Jays
- Dodgers and Blue Jays are swapping Mike Bolsinger and Jesse Chavez
- Angels are sending Hector Santiago to the Twins
- Pirates are getting Ivan Nova from the Yankees
- Giants are getting Matt Moore from the Rays
- Wow: the Pirates sent Francisco Liriano to the Blue Jays for Drew Hutchison (and apparently salary relief). Are the Pirates kinda sorta selling off? That could help the Cubs and Cardinals vis a vis the rest of the NL.
I’m gonna keep updating with bits and deals over these next 30 minutes or so.
