The mid-season trade deadline has passed, and it was a busy one until the bitter end. We witnessed the Pittsburgh Pirates trade away two of their top prospects for Tampa Bay Rays ace Chris Archer, hoping to reach the postseason for the first time since 2015.

Who are players we could see change teams before September?
