As a result of all the deals yesterday, the official depth chart for the Tampa Bay Rays listed ZERO starting pitchers until much later in the evening.
For now, it only lists one starting pitcher on the major league roster.
That's Tyler Glasnow, who has not started a single game this season for the Pirates (before getting dealt to Tampa).

Preston Tucker, Dar' O'Day, Reds fodder, Jonny from the Rays
Mike Moustakas, Wilson Ramos, Manny Machad-O

Robothal, Jon Heyman, rumor mill - let me make a tweet revision
NL East, AL West, just 60 games to go

Rob Osuna, Giles bombed, still more Rays, Chase De Jong
Seunghwan Oh, Kintzler is a spy and catchers in July

Eovaldi, Pressly, Hamels on a new team
Maldonado, Liberatore, oops that's wrong - uh-oh

The Nats didn't have a fire
But the Rays are churning
And the Braves are learning
The Nats didn't have a fire
But the A's are in it
Till the Astros win it

Yet somehow, 107 baseball games have started this year, for Tampa, with someone on the mound. Crazy.

Who fills out those depth charts? The Rays are obviously engaged in some wackiness, because there's no reason not to list Chirinos as a starter.

People in NL-only fantasy leagues have had a busy few days. This trading season has been extremely notable in that virtually ALL the talent has headed AL-to-NL. The best (current) MLBers coming to the AL were Jeurys Familia and Brad Hand until the Pham deal yesterday - and that's IT.

More reason to believe the AL's 14-year-run winning the interleague battle will come to an end this year.

Yup.

I blew my FAAB wad on Escobar... I'm quite pleased to be able to end my MI shuttle of crappy Brewers and Fish there.

Blake Snell - 20 starts (on DL)
Chris Archer - 17 starts (traded)
Ryne Stanek - 16 starts (18 relief appearances, 8 games finished)
Nathan Eovaldi - 10 starts (traded)
Jake Faria - 10 starts (on DL)
Yonny Chirinos - 7 starts (1 relief appearance, 1 game finished)
Sergio Romo - 5 starts (45 relief appearances, 21 games finished)
Ryan Yarbrough - 5 starts (22 relief appearances, 2 games finished)
Wilmer Font - 5 starts (on DL)
Matt Andriese - 4 starts (traded)
Andrew Kittredge - 3 starts (15 relief appearances, 1 game finished)
Hunter Wood - 3 starts (8 relief appearances, 1 game finished)
Anthony Banda - 1 start (minors)
Jonny Venters - 1 start (traded)

So other than Yonny Chirinos, every one of their other "starters" has either been traded, put on the DL, gone to the minors, or been primarily a bullpen "opener".

"Effectively Wild" did a run down of the trades, and every team except the Giants made at least one trade in the last week of July.

I'm thinking the lessons of last offseason had to contribute to the increased activity at the deadline. With teams getting smarter about free agents, they have to expect more players will take QOs in the future, so you might as well take what you can get in a trade because you won't be getting the pick.

Yarbrough is a "starter". He has 5 starts, and 12 relief appearances of 4 innings or longer. His 2 GF were both in the 12th inning, where you frequently see starters.

Helluva find here on R/baseball

Jake Diekman will be the first player ever to play for the Rangers and Diamondbacks in the same season, and Tommy Pham the first to play for the Cardinals and Rays. Of a possible 435 combinations, 433 have now happened - only Marlins-Brewers and Marlins-Indians remain

And both the Indians and the Brewers could really use JT Realmuto. Let’s get this done!

We need a new name for this brand new position of non-starter that makes long appearances typically in regular rotation.

I doubt he clears waivers.

Hey Davos! What are your favorite tacos NOW??

I will always love Moose Tacos. I hope he and Cain make it back to the World Series.

I don't think that's it. The only guys I see who had any hope of getting a QO were Machado (obviously), maybe JA Happ, maybe Hamels and (if you're thinking maybe he'll get a 3/$40 offer elsewhere) maybe Brian Dozier. Have they announced the QO amount yet -- I'm guessing it's close to $19 M. Very few players are getting that offer and no relievers this side of Kimbrel/Jansen/Chapman -- Britton might have if not for the injury and poor performance. And then you have guys like Archer, Pham, Osuna, Duvall, Hand, Kela who are still under control for a few years.

There is a lot of "hey let's cash in this reliever before he tanks" and "sure are a lot of teams desperate for an adequate starting pitcher this year" deals so it's still about cashing an asset before it becomes worthless thinking but it's not QO-related.
   20. Zonk is a Doppleclapper Posted: August 03, 2018 at 07:58 AM (#5720148)
19 leads to an interesting question --

Will Harper be the only QO this coming fall?
   21. Rusty Priske Posted: August 03, 2018 at 02:09 PM (#5720342)
If Donaldson shows any signs of being able to play he will get, and decline, a QO.
   22. bfan Posted: August 03, 2018 at 02:45 PM (#5720381)
I think Nick Markakis should get a QO from the Braves. It is pretty clear he does some of his better work in a year when he is playing for a contract, so, from the Braves perspective, they have to commit to him for one year in a year that looks to be one where he will really, really try hard (as it will again be a walk year for him). There is no one in their MiLB system within a year of filling the position (before the call-ups of a week ago, their top 3 OF prospects were in high A, A and A), so holding him for a year would be a nice transition to that next group. And while $19 million is a good piece of coin, you know that the Markakis down-side is not that bad.
   23. DCA Posted: August 03, 2018 at 03:47 PM (#5720431)
Should get a QO

Yasmani Grandal
Gio Gonzalez
AJ Pollock
Michael Brantley
Nelson Cruz
Pat Corbin
Dallas Keuchel

Can you offer a QO if a guy opts out? If so

Elvis Andrus
Jason Heyward
David Price

Might be missing a few
   24. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: August 03, 2018 at 03:54 PM (#5720440)
Can you offer a QO if a guy opts out? If so

Jason Heyward
No. No. No. No.

If Jason Heyward opts out, you say "thanks for that speech during the rain delay in Game 7" and get off the phone as quickly as possible before he changes his mind.
