Detroit Tigers trade Justin Upton to the Los Angeles Angels

ANAHEIM CA- AUGUST 29 Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim center fielder Cameron Maybin in the dugout after scoring on a hit in the first inning of a game against the Oakland Athletics

By trading Justin Upton to the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday, they might have landed a future starting pitcher.

The Angels are now only a game behind the Minnesota Twins for the second wild card spot in the American League. Thursday is the final day that Major League Baseball teams can complete waiver trades and have the players available to play in the postseason.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Astros have acquired Cameron Maybin from the Angels.

Getting Upton on Thursday instead of Friday could make a huge difference for the Halos. He's young enough and potentially under control until 2022, so he *could* sit alongside Trout in the lineup for years to come.

BJP's new allies may get Cabinet berths in reshuffle
Firstpost had earlier written that Modi has another 18 months to deliver before the 2019 General Elections to Lok Sabha begins. The environment ministry was reassigned to Harsh Vardhan as an additional charge after the death of minister Anil Dave.

Upton determined he was leaning towards opting out of his contract at the end of the season, and the Angels were more than happy to take on the remaining amount he's owed this season. If you were to stay with Anaheim, it would be costly for the Angels. The four-time All-Star signed a six-year, $132.75 million deal to join Detroit before last season, but could opt out of it this winter.

Still, it's an obvious need for the Angels. After the August 31 deadline, traded players can't participate in the postseason.

This might not be all we see from the Tigers either.

Detroit Tigers fans have seen one of the team's best performers depart in a trade. He will be making $28 million each of the next two seasons, after which he has a $22 million option for the 2020 season that vests if he finishes in the top 5 of Cy Young voting in 2019.
