Seams Legit: This had to be one of the busier MLB trade deadlines in recent memory

If you don’t have alerts set up for Ken Rosenthal or Jon Heyman (among others) there’s a chance you missed out on some of the news from one of the busier MLB trade deadlines in the last 5 years.

Here’s the list of the big moves that happened Tuesday (in no particular order):

Jonathan Schoop to the Brewers / Luis Ortiz, Jean Carmona and Jonathan Villar to the Orioles

Jake Diekman to the Diamondbacks / Wei-Chieh Huang to the Rangers

John Axford to the Dodgers / Corey Copping to the Blue Jays

Brandon Kintzler to the Cubs / John Romero to the Nationals

Aaron Loup to the Phillies / Jacob Waguespack to the Blue Jays

Chris Archer to the Pirates / Austin Meadows, Tyler Glasgow and a player to be named later to the Rays

Kevin Gausman and Darren O’Day to the Braves/  Jean Carlos Encarnacion, Brett Cumberland, Evan Phillips and Bruce Zimmerman to the Orioles

Brian Dozier to the Dodgers / Logan Forsythe, Devin Smeltzer and Luke Raley to the Twins

Wilson Ramos to the Phillies / Player to be named later or cash considerations to the Rays

Cameron Maybin to the Mariners / Bryson Brigman to the Marlins

Brad Ziegler to the Diamondbacks / Tommy Eveld to the Marlins

Leonys Martin to the Indians / Willi Castro to the Tigers

Tommy Pham to the Rays / Justin Williams, Genesis Cabrera and Roel Ramirez to the Rays

Keone Kela to the Pirates / Taylor Hearn and a player to be named later to the Rangers

There were of course the other major deals that happened Monday: Ian Kinsler to the Red Sox, Lance Lynn to the Yankees, Roberto Osuna to the Astros, Ken Giles to the Blue Jays.

Biggest rumor that was shut down was of course Bryce Harper being available.

The biggest move on deadline day was without question Archer going to Pittsburgh. The Pirates are 7 games back in the division and the division-leading Cubs recently acquired Cole Hamels. However, Archer isn’t a quick rental. He’s with the Pirates next year, as long a they want him, and the Pirates have options to retain him for 2020 and 2021.

The strangest move in all of this has to be the Osuna for Giles deal. Osuna comes with a ton of baggage, to put it lightly, and the Astros have put themselves in a better position on the field, but worse off the field.
