Here is a complete list of all the teams in the American League West and what they acquired this year before the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline. The list will also include departures.
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
Acquisitions: Zack Greinke, Barry Enright
Departues: Jean Segura, John Hellweg, Ariel Pena
Acquisitions: George Kottaras
Departures: Fautino De Los Santos
Acquisitions: Ryan Dempster, Geovany Soto
Departures: Christian Villanueva, Kyle Hendricks, Jake Brigham
Acquisitions: Leon Landry, Logan Bawcom, Eric Thames
Departures: Steve Delabar, Brandon League
The big winners in the AL West – the Angels. They acquired Zack Greinke. The best starter available.
The Mariners cleaned some house in trading Brandon League to the Dodgers for two pretty good prospects.
The A’s, who need SS help, were quiet at the deadline only acquiring catching depth in George Kottaras.
A close second, though, was the Rangers. They got arguably the second best starter available in Ryan Dempster for a pair of Class A prospects.
Winner: Los Angeles Angels
Loser: Oakland Athletics
