Around the league...
- In case you missed it, there was a major trade last night involving Trevor Bauer.
Per sources, the three-team deal looks like this:— Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) July 31, 2019
Reds get Trevor Bauer (from CLE)
Padres get Taylor Trammell (from CIN)
Indians get Yasiel Puig, Scott Moss (from CIN), Franmil Reyes, Logan Allen, Victor Nova (from SD)
- Right after that happened, this happened. We’ll see what happens to Yasiel Puig for his involvement in this.
Fair deal: Bauer’s last act as an Indian throwing ball over CF fence. Puig’s last act as a Red participating in a brawl.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) July 31, 2019
