Eddie Matz @ESPNeddiematz

Hunter talking to reporters about going to Cubs. He had't gotten word yet, but just got pulled away. Not gonna lie: His eyes were lil glassy

Tommy Hunter going to Cubs

The Orioles RHP has been traded to Chicago for OF Junior Lake, according to multiple reports. Hunter has a 3.63 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 44 2/3 innings of relief this season, and Lake has played mostly at Triple-A this year.


Padres shock... by doing nothing

San Diego was widely expected to sell -- and sell aggresively -- at this trade deadline. However, the front office did not move any of the most intriguing players before 4 p.m. ET today.

Gordon Edes @GordonEdes

Past the deadline. Something could still be announced, but Sox have no deals. Farrell meets media at 4:15. August waiver moves loom

Mets trade for Yoenis Cespedes

New York solves its left field issue by trading for Cespedes, per ESPN and multiple reports. Cespedes, a solid defender, has a .829 OPS this season, compared to Mets left fielders' .710 OPS (18th in MLB). The trade came minutes before the deadline.


Ben Revere traded to Toronto

By adding Revere, the Blue Jays' powerful offense fills its only void: a true leadoff hitter. Revere has hit .298 with 24 steals as the Phillies' primary leadoff hitter this year.


What a hairy good time

The Bowie Baysox, the Orioles' Double-A affiliate, held a "Back Hair Appreciation Night" on Thursday. Featured? A free waxing station, a Hairy Wall of Fame and free admission if a number was shaved into your back. Good times. 'Ohhh, Kelly Clarkson'?

Hearing #Rangers likely to hang onto Yovani Gallardo before the deadline. They've said all along they'd take the draft pick if they had to

Glanville: Revere brings reckless abandon

Said Doug Glanville on what the LF would bring to the Blue Jays (as reported by MLB's Phillies reporter): "His hair is on fire, shoes are on fire. That's his game, and you're looking for a high-energy guy, that's Ben Revere's game."
