Don't refresh your screen or rub your eyes you read it correctly. In the battle known as the trade deadline in MLB the winner wasn't the Yankees, Dodgers or Cubs, it was prospects. Your probably saying, what how can that be? Let me explain.
Yes, there were a lot of great moves that were made on Monday, Jonathan Lucroy to the Rangers or Josh Reddick to the Dodgers, but those players already were big league talent and their new teams may have become better. In the end though most teams in the running for the playoffs are now better so how can we say one team won the deadline over another? That's why it is clear that this years trade deadline was won by non-major league players we like to call prospects.
More interesting than who was traded where on Monday was who got the call to the majors on Tuesday. Three high end talents were told to pack their bags and join their major league affiliates. Those prospect coming to the show are Andrew Benintendi, Orlando Arcia and Gary Sanchez. All three of these top talents were told this week that the time had come to show what they can do on the big stage. In the next couple of days we will definitely pay attention to the guys who were traded and what they do with their new clubs, but even more people will be watching the future of our sport to see who will be the next superstar.
