The New York Mets might be the highest-profile example of that with injuries to ace pitchers Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer. Also, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox make the sort of one-for-one trade not often seen anymore. And the Los Angeles Angels cut Justin Upton loose despite owing him $28 million this season.
