The 2019 MLB Trade deadline was filled with surprises. That is why over the next couple of slides, we will classify which teams were winners, which were loser, and which we just can’t determine.

The MLB Trade Deadline passed and once again many players are changing teams and many contenders strengthened their clubs.

Among the most notable players to be moved were Zack Greinke, Yasiel Puig, Trevor Bauer and Nicholas Castellanos, almost all of whom went to teams shooting for the postseason.

Elsewhere the Mets planned for the future by adding Marcus Stroman and the Padres added a high-upside prospect.

It will be years before we can fairly judge some of these deals, but some of the deals will be assessed immediately depending on how a player and his new team go in the postseason, and what kind of impact said the player will have during that run.

So with all that being said let’s assess who the winners, losers and confusers are from the 2019  MLB Trade Deadline.
