Here’s how the NL West fared in the days leading to the trade deadline this afternoon.
- The Rockies only really made one move, but it was a big one — they traded star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and reliever LaTroy Hawkins to the Blue Jays for shortstop Jose Reyes and pitchers Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro and Jesus Tinoco.
- The Dodgers acquired pitcher Mat Latos, 1B/OF Michael Morse, infielder Jose Peraza, and pitcher Alex Wood, Luis Avilan, Jim Johnson and Bronson Arroyo in a complex 13-player deal with the Braves and Marlins. As part of the deal, they sent infielder Hector Olivera and pitchers Paco Rodriguez and Zachary Bird to Atlanta, also sending pitchers Kevin Guzman, Jeff Brigham and Victor Araujo to Miami. They then designated Morse, Brandon Beachy, Chris Heisey and Chin-hui Tsao for assignment, and shipped Morse and cash to the Pirates for outfielder Jose Tabata. They also lost reliever Preston Guilmet via a waiver claim.
- The Giants acquired veteran righty Mike Leake from the Reds for pitching prospect Keury Mella and infielder Adam Duvall. They also lost reliever Jean Machi via a waiver claim and designated infielder Joaquin Arias for assignment.
- Despite their 50-53 record, the Padres declined to sell at the deadline, instead acquiring reliever Marc Rzepcyznski from the Indians for outfielder Abraham Almonte and doing little else.
- The Diamondbacks, too, were very quiet at the deadline, though they were connected in trade rumors to Reds closer Aroldis Chapman, who remains in Cincinnati. In a minor move, the the D-backs traded pitcher J.C. Ramirez to the Mariners.
