The Cleveland Indians shocked the world with a huge blockbuster trade of Trevor Bauer that completely reshapes the club for 2019 and beyond.

Things got even crazier when it was quickly reported that it was a three-team deal involving the San Diego Padres as well. The list of players kept growing and finally this morning the Tribe officially announced the deal, which is as follows:
Reds Get: Trevor Bauer (CLE)
Padres Get: Taylor Trammell (CIN)
