After weeks of rumors linking starting pitcher Marcus Stroman as a possible option for the Yankees, the Mets ended up being the team on Sunday night to strike a deal with the Blue Jays for their ace pitcher. This was the first move for the Mets ahead of Wednesdays MLB Trade Deadline.

The Mets had themselves a good weekend on the field, capping off a three-game sweep with an 8-7 win on Sunday. Despite still being under .500, the Mets are still hanging around the Wild Card spot for the National League, sitting six games back. They head to Chicago for a series against the White Sox next.
The Yankees managed to get one victory in Boston on Sunday night. After a tough first three days at Fenway, they were able to defeat Chris Sale and the Red Sox thanks to a few homers and a strong outing from Domingo German, winning 9 to 6.
