The Toronto Blue Jays were winners in Thursday’s action, bolstering their rotation by adding Detroit Tigers ace David Price. Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez also got moved (finally), this time to the Houston Astros.

There are a handful of key players still up for grabs, though, including Tigers outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and San Diego Padres outfielder Justin Upton. Things should get pretty crazy in the hours leading up to the deadline, so keep it locked on our live blog throughout the day for the latest.
