    The trade deadline has come and gone, and with it MLB teams’ final chance to fine-tune their rosters for the play-offs. Confirmation of the biggest deal of this summer - and perhaps any other - came at 4pm Eastern when the San Diego Padres announced the arrival of superstar outfielder Juan Soto from the Washington Nationals, adding Josh Bell too in a deal that saw five players go the other way and will have huge ramifications for the future of multiple franchises. Here, Sportsmail picks the league’s winners and losers from a frenetic trade deadline.

    The next time the Oakland A’s are competing for a playoff berth, left-handed pitcher Ken Waldichuk could be the ace leading the postseason push. Waldichuk, who pitched in college at Saint Mary’s in Moraga, was the headliner of the prospect package the A’s received in return for sending starter Frankie Montas and reliever Lou Trivino to the Yankees Monday. After dealing two veteran pitchers Monday, Tuesday was quiet for an A’s team that now has a big hole to fill in its rotation the rest of the way. It’s possible two of the prospects acquired Monday –Waldichuk and fellow lefty JP Sears– could provide help sooner rather than later. Since being selected in the fifth round of the 2019 MLB amateur draft by the Yankees, Waldichuk’s stock has risen dramatically thanks to eye-popping strikeout totals and a three-pitch mix (fastball, curveball, changeup) that has neutralized minor league foes.

The Atlanta Braves are likely going to be making some upgrades before the trade deadline. After all, they are the reigning World Series champions, and they have a stranglehold on a playoff spot this season. In fact, they have a 98 percent chance of making the playoffs, according to Baseball-Reference. When they make those moves, they will have to get rid of some of their players that aren’t doing well. Here are three players that don’t deserve to be on the Braves roster after the trade deadline.3 Braves that shouldn’t be on the roster after the trade deadline1) Braves infielder Robinson CanóLet’s call things as we see it: Robinson Canó has...
    MINNEAPOLIS, MN – APRIL 26: Michael Fulmer #32 of the Detroit Tigers. (Photo by David Berding/Getty Images) 3 Detroit Tigers players who won’t be on the roster after the trade deadline With Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic breaking the news that the Detroit Tigers are open to dealing virtually anybody on their active roster, including budding ace Tarik Skubal, speculation is beginning to fly all around the industry. Sources: Tigers willing to trade Tarik Skubal and “just about everyone.”https://t.co/8XmSF6u2GM — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 26, 2022 Entering the day, the Tigers sit at 39-59, 13.5 GB of the Twins for the AL Central lead and 13.5 GB of an AL Wild Card spot, effectively already putting them out of playoff contention. The team has a -118 run differential, third lowest in the majors, and a serious lack of superstar-level players on the big league team. While a Tarik Skubal trade would be quite the jaw-dropper this season, that is one move that is unlikely to happen, at least not yet. The 26-year-old southpaw has had his share of struggles...
    The Chicago Cubs’ June swoon has cemented the direction of their season. The Cubs finished 10-17 (.370), their worst month so far, as they approach the midpoint of the season. Although the Cubs leave behind a 10-game losing streak in early June as they enter July having won two consecutive series, the clubhouse will be facing increased trade speculation. Here is a breakdown of what to take away from the Cubs’ June performance. 1. Nico Hoerner’s hot month displays his all-around potential. Hoerner’s potential for stardom has been on display this season with his upside never looking higher than it did in June. He already impressed with his glove at shortstop behind the work he put in during the offseason. But his offensive production went to a new level in June. Hoerner finished the month with a .344/.392/.452 slash line. There is still room to increase his power numbers (six extra-base hits over 25 June games). But his ability to get on base via hits is a reliable attribute that had been missing from the Cubs’ power-heavy lineups the last...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Jake DeBrusk requested a trade away from the Bruins in November. Monday’s trade deadline came and went. DeBrusk remains with the Bruins. While that scenario obviously clashes with his request, the 25-year-old winger said he’s finding the positive in his situation.

And that’s why I play the game, is to win the Stanley Cup. And I’m comfortable with these guys.

The NBA Trade Deadline provided everything we could have asked for — early action, lots of trades and several huge names on the move. To break down some of the biggest lingering questions I tapped in two of the best minds from The Step Back and FanSided’s NBA network.Forget the rest of the Eastern Conference, who would you take in a seven-game series between the Nets and 76ers?Ben Ladner, The Step Back: It’s a close call. I like the idea of unlocking Ben Simmons as a roll man and downhill driver with four shooters around him, and both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving’s immutable individual scoring takes on greater value in the playoffs. That said, those four-out lineups featuring Simmons, Durant and Irving are contingent upon the Nets’ best players being available, which I don’t trust them to be. Joe Harris, one of the team’s best shooters, remains out indefinitely, Irving currently can’t play in...
    SAN FRANCISCO — The trade deadline has come and gone, and it looks as though the Warriors’ path back to the NBA Finals did not get much more difficult. They’ll likely roll with what they have on the roster into the playoff push. Despite some quiet rumblings that the Warriors — holding the second best-record in the West — might explore the market for another center, the team saw the noon PT deadline on Thursday pass without making a trade. Notable, too, is that their biggest competition atop the Western Conference didn’t make much noise, either. “It’s one of the hardest parts of being in the NBA. When guys are released or traded, guys you grow close with,” coach Steve Kerr said. “There is a sense of relief today. We love everyone that’s here and we have a great group. We’re all very excited that we can now move forward.” The first-place Phoenix Suns made a marginal move to acquire Torrey Craig from Indiana for Jalen Smith and a future second-round pick, along with acquiring Aaron...
    Britney Spears Mom Lynne Requests $650,000 in Attorney Fees as Singer Slams Her on Instagram Will Dominion end up owning MyPillow if it wins a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against Mike Lindell? Here are 2 ways it could take control. The latest on a situation that hasn’t changed in Houston, plus the Titans replace Derrick Henry with Adrian Peterson and more. The Deshaun Watson situation hasn’t changed much since the summer, and that’s notable. No criminal charges have been filed. No action has been taken by the league. And while the 22 lawsuits are still pending, the idea of a settlement, once eschewed by Watson as he pursued full exoneration, has been floated again. Amid that status quo, the trade deadline came and went Tuesday, and Watson remained on the Texans’ roster. That means, officially at least, he’ll stay there until mid-March (Houston could conceivably agree to, but not formalize, a deal before then, as the Rams and Lions did on Matthew Stafford last January). So what happens when we get there? © Provided by Sports Illustrated Troy...

The San Diego Padres will play their first game Tuesday since acquiring infielder Adam Frazier and will look to his bat to help solve the riddle that is Oakland rookie James Kaprielian. Opponents are hitting .202 off Kaprielian this season. In 12 starts, the former Yankees No. 1 pick has allowed three runs or fewer 11 times and given up five hits or fewer 11 times in accruing a 5-3 record and 2.65 ERA. Padres starter Chris Paddack is doing a good job of limiting walks (two per nine innings) but has a 5.17 ERA with a .270 opponents batting average and has surrendered at least three runs in four of his past five starts. Oakland’s bullpen enters the series in good form, having the best ERA in the AL the past 30 days. Overall, the Athletics have the second-best road...
    Kawhi Leonard. Matthew Hinton/AP Images The NBA trade deadline has passed, and the season is in its stretch run. According to data from 538, just 12 teams still have a shot at making the NBA Finals. We broke down the 12 teams, led by the Brooklyn Nets and LA Clippers. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The NBA trade deadline came and went with a flurry of deals, and the season is now in what we could call the stretch run. The path to the NBA championship looks more open than usual this season, prompting teams to add pieces or stand pat, believing their rosters are in shape to make a run.

    Pfizers COVID vaccine candidate shown to be 90% effective in early findings 13 things you probably didnt know about The Cheesecake Factory Golf: Johnson dangerous after shaking off the rust AUGUSTA, Ga. (Reuters) - Dustin Johnson is a dangerous threat heading into this week's Masters after the world number one showed impressive form since coming back from COVID-19. © Reuters/Thomas Shea PGA: Houston Open - Final Round © Reuters/Kelvin Kuo PGA: Zozo Championship - Second Round The American came on strong to finish tied for second place in Houston on Sunday, coolly rolling in a birdie putt on 15 to build momentum as he guns for his first Green Jacket. Last week's tournament was Johnson's first since testing positive for COVID-19 but the 36-year-old said he felt well. "My health is good. The state of my game is undetermined," he said last week. Johnson was dominant this year, winning the Tour Championship to claim his first-ever FedExCup title in September and then finished tied for sixth at the U.S. Open. "It was a really good year. It...
    (WJZ)- The Ravens are off to a solid start to the season, sitting at 3-1 and a half game back of first in the AFC North due to Pittsburgh’s postponed game against the Titans last week. Still, even with what many consider to be one of the best teams in the league, GM Eric Decosta is likely to remain aggressive in searching for upgrades to the roster. The Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec made an appearance on Glenn Clark Radio on Tuesday saying that it’s in Decosta’s nature to be aggressive in the trade market. “I think that’s likely. That’s sort of DeCosta’s personality. He’s aggressive. He’s always looking out there, and he’s very creative. … When there’s somebody available, Eric at least puts in the call to see if [the Ravens] can at least throw their hat in the ring,” said Zrebiec. “You could see teams wanting to dump salary because they know what’s ahead in terms of the cap decrease. I think teams may be more aggressive in looking to move on from some guys that may not be available....
    The Chicago Cubs have won this season in spite of their bullpen but after a productive trade deadline, the group thinks they may have solved a key issue in their bullpen. On paper, the Cubs bullpen was expected to be at the very least, average this season. With a future Hall of Famer in Craig Kimbrel as their closer, good setup arms in Rowan Wick and veteran Jeremy Jeffress, along with a starting rotation that currently ranks third in WAR at 3.9 this season. This group didn’t need to be excellent, just good enough to get the ball to Kimbrel. However, through the midway point of this 60-game season, the Cubs bullpen has been worth exactly 0.0 WAR. And that’s after an improved effort in August helped reduce the Cubs dreadful 9.55 ERA in July to a 5.23 ERA at the moment. Of course, the focus has been primarily on Kimbrel, who lost his closing job after two subpar outings to start the season. Luckily, thanks to first-year manager David Ross and his quick decision making with the bullpen, he...
    Updated World Series odds are out after the passing of the MLB trade deadline and the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees are still the odds-on favorites. The Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Yankees remain the top picks to win the World Series, even after an eventful trade deadline. With a little over half the season played, the Dodgers are the best team in baseball, with a .722 win percentage. The latest lines give them 4/1 odds of winning the World Series, with the Yankees just behind them at 11/2 odds. The Tampa Bay Rays, who currently lead the AL East with a 25-11 record, come in behind their division rivals with 9/1 odds. The Oakland A’s, who have been a hot team despite a recent slowdown due to positive coronavirus tests, come in right behind the Rays with 10/1 odds. The San Diego Padres, who have been one of the most fun teams to watch in baseball this year and made some big moves before the trade deadline, round out the top five with the same...

Even in a 60-game season wherein the MLB Trade Deadline was pushed all the way back to Aug. 31, some of the biggest names in the game found out they’d have new homes for the remainder of the season.
