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

AcquisitionsZack Greinke, Barry Enright

Departues: Jean Segura, John Hellweg, Ariel Pena

Oakland Athletics

Acquisitions: George Kottaras

Departures: Fautino De Los Santos

Texas Rangers

AcquisitionsRyan Dempster, Geovany Soto

Departures: Christian Villanueva, Kyle Hendricks, Jake Brigham

Seattle Mariners

AcquisitionsLeon 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
