Presenting the Official FanGraphs Trade Deadline Roundup!

Well that was busy! Over the past week, the FanGraphs staff has written 35 pieces dedicated to analyzing the 2020 trade deadline, from Jay Jaffe’s Replacement-Level Killers series, which previewed teams’ positions of need, to detailed breakdowns of deadline transactions, to Craig Edwards’ piece today on deadline winners and losers, and Eric Longenhagen’s ranking of the prospects who moved. It’s a lot to sort through, so to assist you in finding anything you may have missed during yesterday’s flurry, I’ve rounded up all of our deadline pieces in one place. You’ll find the broader preview and recap pieces listed first, followed by a team-by-team listing of those transactions pieces that involved your favorite squad, either as buyers or sellers. In instances when we dissected a transaction across multiple pieces — hello, Padres! — you’ll see them grouped together.

As always, all of the pieces linked below are free to read, but they took time, resources, and weekend work hours to produce. If you enjoyed our coverage of the trade deadline and are in a position to do so, we hope you’ll sign up for a FanGraphs ad-free Membership. It’s the best way to both support our work and experience the site. Now, on to the roundup!
