Every key MLB trade completed for the 2015 trade deadline

Every deal that has happened on and leading up to July 31.

The 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline line has come and gone. After all the big deals earlier in the week, including starting pitchers David Price, Johnny Cueto, Cole Hamels and Mike Leake being shipped to new clubs, Friday was relatively quiet. Eyes were mainly watching what would become of Tigers outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, Reds closer Aroldis Chapman and, well, pretty much the entire Padres team.

Answer: Not much. Cespedes was sent to to the Mets just before the deadline, while the Reds and Padres both decided to hold onto their players. That doesn't mean the day was without movement, though. The Cubs acquired starting pitcher Dan Haren from the Marlins and reliever Tommy Hunter from the Orioles. The Blue Jays continued their "all-in" move that began with Price and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki earlier in the week by adding outfielder Ben Revere and reliever Mark Lowe.

Still, most of the trade fun came in the days before the deadline. The Dodgers pulled off the biggest trade by quantity in recent memory, which involved three teams and 13 (!) players. The initial trade didn't even involve the Braves but when the Dodgers and Marlins couldn't come to terms, the trade was scratched until the Braves got involved. The Blue Jays sent No. 18 overall pitching prospect Daniel Norris, along with two other arms, for Price, the best starting pitcher on the market on Thursday. That follow picking up five-time All-Star shortstop Tulowitzki late Monday night for shortstop Jose Reyes and prospects.

Monday, the Angels and Mets added outfielder Shane Victorino and relief pitcher Tyler Clippard, respectively. The biggest move so far, however, came a day earlier, when Johnny Cueto was sent from the Reds to the Royals to help Kansas City shore up its rotation. The Royals also picked up utilityman Ben Zobrist from the A's to help shore up their roster.
