The MLB’s non-waiver trade deadline arrives Monday at 4 p.m. ET, meaning it’s the final day for deals to be completed. We haven’t seen too many fireworks this year, but there were a handful of notable moves that went down Sunday. Here’s a brief rundown:
— New York Yankees acquire starting pitcher Jaime Garcia from Minnesota Twins for two minor leaguers
— Kansas City Royals acquire outfielder Melky Cabrera from Chicago White Sox for two prospects
— Colorado Rockies acquire catcher Jonathan Lucroy from Texas Rangers for player to be named later
— Chicago Cubs reportedly acquire relief pitcher Justin Wilson, catcher Alex Avila from Detroit Tigers for prospects
There still are some big names on the board who have yet to move — notably Rangers ace Yu Darvish and Oakland Athletics right-hander Sonny Gray — so keep it here for all the latest updates throughout the final day.
