The 2019 Major League Baseball trade deadline is in the books. Unlike in past years, this season will not feature a waiver-wire trade period next month. As such, Wednesday's deadline carried much more significance than it did in the past, when teams could fill out their rosters up until the season's final month.
The Nationals added Daniel Hudson, Roenis Elias, Hunter Strickland in separate trades to help strengthen their weak bullpen. The Athletics added another veteran starter to their rotation in Tanner Roark. Meanwhile, the Yankees and Red Sox stayed quiet with their deadline moves.
