Astros Get Mancini, Yankees Nab Pitchers & Braves Lock Up Austin Riley

The two top teams in the American League made a splash on the eve of the MLB trade deadline. Both the Yankees and Astros stole the headlines on Monday with the Astros acquiring Trey Mancini and Christian Vazquez and the Yankees swiping a pair of arms from the Athletics. The Braves also signed their budding superstar to a massive extension. Here’s the latest before today’s deadline (6:00 pm ET).


Latest MLB Acquisition News


Astros Acquire Mancini & Vazquez: Houston made two splashes on Monday and filled two holes in the roster by acquiring 1B Trey Mancini from the Orioles and C Christian Vazquez from the Red Sox in separate deals.


Yankees Add PitchersThe Yanks have been one of the busiest deadline buyers, and Monday was no exception. They swung a deal to bolster their pitching staff with right-handers Frankie Montas and Lou Trivino from the Athletics in exchange for four prospects.


Braves Lock Up RileyIn the midst of an earth-shattering season for Austin Riley, Atlanta gave their rising star a 10-year, $212 million extension. Riley just finished one of the best months in Braves franchise history, batting .423 with 11 home runs.


Cardinals Get Quintana: The St. Louis Cardinals reportedly made a deal for Pirates lefty Jose Quintana late Monday night, although details of the trade haven’t been finalized. The 33-year-old former all-star would add depth to the Cards’ rotation.


Padres Make Run at Ohtani: Few expected the Angels to actually part ways with Shohei Ohtani, and it looks like they won’t. That didn’t stop the Padres from making calls.
