Another MLB trade deadline has come and gone, and already fans are buzzing about who the real winners and losers are. One thing is for sure, a few teams that weren’t on many experts’ radar this spring, namely the Atlanta Braves, Philadelphia Phillies, and Milwaukee Brewers, all made some nice moves to improve their squads. The Detroit Tigers didn't make moves, despite the rumors. Along those lines, the Yankees failed to acquire Fulmer. But there were quite a few teams that did make huge improvements and will be fun to watch down the stretch.

Braves under the radar deals

The Atlanta Braves' latest transactions won’t be headline news on any sports shows outside the state of Georgia, however, adding pitchers Kevin Gausman and Darren O'Day should give the pitching staff a nice boost.

According to, while both pitchers are struggling a bit, the Braves are hoping a change of scenery could do wonders for them. O'Day was a hot commodity when he posted a 1.52 ERA and was an All-Star selection in 2015. The Braves were interested in O’Day back then and they are hoping that now he can help lead them to the postseason this fall. The Braves also acquired Adam Duvall from the Cincinnati Reds for outfielder Preston Tucker and right-handed pitchers Matt Wisler and Lucas Sims.

BoSox add another former Tiger

When GM Dave Dombrowski left the Detroit Tigers and eventually took a job with the Boston Red Sox, fans in Motown didn’t know that he would be leading a team of so many players that formerly wore the Old English D.

Mass Live indicates that late Monday evening (July 30) the Red Sox and Angels struck a deal that sent second baseman Ian Kinsler to Boston.

Kinsler will join former Tigers David Price and JD Martinez on the Red Sox roster, and he is more than anxious to suit up with his new team.

"They're the best team in baseball. I'm happy to be aboard," he said. "I'm extremely excited. I was excited last night when I got the call." With the status of Dustin Pedroia unknown, picking up Kinsler is a great move for the Red Sox.

Other transactions

With the MLB trade deadline officially ending just hours ago, keeping track of who went where can be enough to make a fan's head spin. Here is a quick glance at some of the biggest deals that took place over the past 24 hours. The Pirates acquired starter Chris Archer from the Tampa Bay Rays just prior to Tuesday's 4 PM ET non-waiver deadline. In return, Pittsburgh sent top prospects outfielder Austin Meadows and pitcher Tyler Glasnow to Tampa Bay.

The Rays also sent star catcher Wilson Ramos to the Philadelphia Phillies for cash and a player to be named later. The Cleveland Indians acquired Tigers centerfielder trade Leonys Martin for infield prospect Willi Castro, while the Yankees added JA Happ, Lance Lynn, and closer Zach Britton.

With all the buzz still fresh in the air, one team to watch out for is the Milwaukee Brewers. After adding Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain this spring, they have now landed sluggers Mike Moustakas and Jonathan Schoop. Watch out for the Brew Crew this fall. If they make the postseason, they will be a tough out!
