All right, some rapid-fire sharing of deals that are worth getting in front of you, but didn’t necessarily merit a full write-up in the scramble of getting into the really big/relevant stuff (Cubs getting Kintzler, Brewers getting Schoop, Pirates getting Archer).

- The Braves and Orioles got together on a big deal, which will help supplement the Braves’ rotation as they try to stay in the NL East and Wild Card races:
The Atlanta #Braves today acquired RHP Kevin Gausman and RHP Darren O’Day from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for minor leaguers RHP Evan Phillips, INF Jean Carlos Encarnación, C Brett Cumberland, LHP Bruce Zimmerman and international signing slots.

In a corresponding roster move, LHP Jorge De La Rosa has been designated for assignment.
