    Cubs: get below the luxury tax threshold at the cost of Schwarber, but they also pick up Frazier and Rengifo, both of whom can hit righties reasonably well. Frazier can cover the loss of Schwarber in left to an extent and Rengifo can split time with Hoerner at second. They also continue to add velocity to their farm system in Soriano.

    Pirates: They cash in two of their assets for upside plays with relatively strong pedigrees (high draft picks/recent draft overslots) in Adams, Paris, and Hearn to go along with Martinez, who has hit reasonably well since coming stateside. For their troubles, they also have to take on Descalso’s $2.5M and pray he returns to 2018 form so he can be flipped at the deadline.

    Angels: The Stripling/Pederson trade fell through, but they rebound with this deal that nets them a rotation piece who possibly is tapping into his stuff again with a better pitch mix in Archer. Schwarber is the big left handed outfield bat they sought out in Pederson. Both former Maddon guys too, which probably isn’t that impactful, but probably doesn’t hurt getting everyone into the fold.
