Friday’s tender/non-tender deadline proved to be the busiest day to date of the MLB offseason.
In shades of the trade deadline, there were a combined seven trades across the league on Friday plus one more late Thursday night. Additionally, a handful of notable names are now free agents after they were non-tendered by their clubs.
Let’s recap it all.
All The Trades
- Minutes to Midnight (shoutout Linkin Park) on Thursday, the White Sox and Braves got together for a six-player swap. The Braves acquired relief pitcher Aaron Bummer from Chicago for pitchers Michael Soroka and Jared Shuster, infielders Nicky Lopez and Braden Shewmake and prospect Riley Gowens.
- Friday’s frenzy began with the Rockies acquiring right-hander Cal Quantrill from the Guardians for catching prospect Kody Huff.
- Cleveland stayed active, swapping relief pitcher Enyel De Los Santos to the Padres for fellow bullpen arm Scott Barlow.
- The Royals acquired veteran reliever Nick Anderson from the Braves for cash considerations. The two teams got together again a few hours later, with Kansas City acquiring RHP Kyle Wright for RHP Jackson Kowar.
- The Brewers acquired first baseman/outfielder Jake Bauers from the Yankees for a pair of minor league outfielders.
- In a Florida swap, the Marlins acquired reliever Calvin Faucher and infielder Vidal Bruján from the Rays for two prospects and a player to be named later or cash.
- And finally, the Mariners traded relief pitcher Isaiah Campbell to the Red Sox for Luis Urías.
