MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The trade deadline has passed and the Rays were very active, but not in the way most expected as they shocked the baseball world by pulling off the first trade of the day as they acquired outfielder Tommy Pham from the St Louis Cardinals for a trio of prospects. Later on, they completed the deals that were expected of them as they traded Wilson Ramos to the Philadelphia Phillies for a player to be named later, and then capped off the afternoon by sending Chris Archer to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Tyler Glasnow, Austin Meadows, and another player to be named.

Sergio Romo and Adeiny Hechavarria are still members of the Rays.

Ryan Yarbrough didn’t pitch great, allowing six runs in five innings of relief. Ryne Stanek, of course, pitched a scoreless first, while Diego Castillo, Jose Alvarado, and Sergio Romo pitched the 7th through the 9th, scoreless.

Tonight, Tyler Glasnow and Tommy Pham will make their Rays debuts as Glasnow will start the game and Pham will be in the starting lineup.
