NEW YORK (AP) The Latest on Major League Baseball's deadline Monday for trades where players do not first have to pass through waivers (all times EDT):

5:40 p.m.

The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired right-hander Mike Bolsinger from the Los Angeles Dodgers for right-hander Jesse Chavez and cash.

The 28-year-old Bolsinger was 1-4 with a 6.83 ERA for the Dodgers this season. He's also spent some time in the minors in 2016. Bolsinger made 21 starts for Los Angeles last year, going 6-6 with a 3.62 ERA.

Chavez went 1-2 with a 4.57 ERA in 39 relief appearances for Toronto this season. He was a starter for Oakland the previous two years. The 32-year-old right-hander has 42 strikeouts in 41 1/3 innings in 2016.

5:20 p.m.

The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired right-hander Scott Feldman from the Houston Astros for minor league pitcher Lupe Chavez.

The playoff contenders made the deal Monday.

The 33-year-old Feldman is 5-3 with a 2.90 ERA in 26 appearances for the Astros this season. He's made five starts but has pitched almost exclusively out of the bullpen since the end of April.

Feldman is 1-2 with a 3.65 ERA as a starter this year, and he's gone 4-1 with a 2.41 ERA in relief.

The 18-year-old Chavez is in his third professional season, and this was his second with the Gulf Coast Blue Jays.

5:13 p.m.

The NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs have added more depth to their bullpen, acquiring right-hander Joe Smith from the Los Angeles Angels just before the trade deadline.

The Cubs sent minor league righty Jesus Castillo to the Angels on Monday.

Chicago recently acquired closer Aroldis Chapman from the Yankees and reliever Mike Montgomery from Seattle.

The 32-year-old Smith is 1-4 with a 3.82 ERA and six saves in 38 appearances with the Angels this season. The sidewinder has also pitched for the Indians and Mets in his 10-year big league career and is in the last season of his contract.

---

5:10 p.m.

The Orioles have reacquired infielder-outfielder Steve Pearce from Tampa Bay, sending the Rays minor league catcher Jonah Heim.

The 33-year-old Peace played for the Orioles from 2012-15 and hit .258 with 43 homers and 116 RBIs. He signed with Tampa Bay last winter and is batting .309 this season with 10 homers and 50 RBIs.

Heim, 21, was a fourth-round draft pick in 2013 and hit .216 with seven homers and 30 RBIs for Class A Frederick this season.

---

5:01 p.m.

The AL West-leading Texas Rangers have acquired two-time All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy and closer Jeremy Jeffress from the Milwaukee Brewers in a trade for two former first-round picks.

Texas completed the deal Monday, a day after Lucroy blocked a preliminary agreement the Brewers had to send him to AL Central-leading Cleveland. The Rangers are sending outfielder Lewis Brinson and right-hander Luis Ortiz to the Brewers.

This is the second year in a row at the deadline that the Rangers acquired a top player who had first rejected a deal to another team. They got All-Star left-hander Cole Hamels last season after the pitcher voided a proposed trade that would have sent him from Philadelphia to Houston.

---

4:53 p.m.

The retooling New York Yankees have dealt right-hander Ivan Nova to the Pittsburgh Pirates for two players to be named.

A 29-year-old right-hander, Nova follows relievers Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller, and outfielder Carlos Beltran out of New York.

Nova is 7-6 with a 4.90 ERA in 15 starts and six relief appearances, his inconsistency is among the reasons the Yankees have struggled for much of this season. He was 6-11 with a 5.07 ERA over 17 starts last year in his return from Tommy John surgery.

---

4:40 p.m.

A person with knowledge of the trade says the San Francisco Giants have acquired left-handed starter Matt Moore from the Tampa Bay Rays for third baseman Matt Duffy.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because neither club had formally announced the swap. San Francisco already acquired reliever Will Smith from the Brewers to bolster their bullpen, and now they have a reliable addition for the rotation to join Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija given the struggles of Matt Cain and Jake Peavy.

The 27-year-old Moore is 7-7 with a 4.08 ERA in 21 starts and 130 innings.

Duffy had a standout rookie season a year ago but has been hampered by an Achilles strain suffered against his new Rays team on June 19.

4:40 p.m.

Jonathan Lucroy says he's been traded to the AL West-leading Texas Rangers.

There was no immediate confirmation from the Rangers or the Milwaukee Brewers as the non-waiver trade deadline passed Monday, but Lucroy posted on his verified Twitter account that he's ''moving on'' to the Rangers and ''can't wait to get after it.''

In another tweet, Lucroy thanked Brewers fans and said they would always have a special place in his heart.

The 30-year-old Lucroy is hitting .299 with 13 homers and 50 RBIs in 95 games this season. He has been with the Brewers for all six of his major league seasons, hitting .284 in 805 games, and his contract includes a $5.25 million team option for 2017.

4:35 p.m.

The New York Mets re-acquired Jon Niese from Pittsburgh on Monday, bringing the left-handed pitcher back to where he played his first eight seasons in a trade that sent reliever Antonio Bastardo to the Pirates.

Traded from the Mets to Pittsburgh last December for second baseman Neil Walker, Niese struggled during his time with the Pirates. He went 8-6 with a 4.91 ERA and was moved to the bullpen earlier this month.

Bastardo, who went 4-1 with a 2.98 ERA in 2015 with Pittsburgh, posted a 4.74 ERA in 41 appearances for the Mets. Bastardo agreed to a $12 million, two-year deal with New York in January and is owed $6.5 million in 2017.

---

4:25 p.m.

The New York Mets have acquired All-Star outfielder Jay Bruce from the Cincinnati Reds for infielder Dilson Herrera and minor league left-hander Max Wotell.

The 29-year-old Bruce is hitting .265 with 25 homers and a National League-leading 80 RBIs. He made the NL All-Star team for the third time.

New York's move follows last year's trade deadline acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes, whose offensive spark helped the Mets reach the World Series for the first time since 2000.

Bruce homered in five straight games in late July, a career best. A downside has been his career-long penchant for following a torrid streak with an incredibly cold one.

---

3:54 p.m.

The Yankees stepped up their rebuilding, trading outfielder Carlos Beltran to the AL West-leading Texas Rangers for right-hander Dillon Tate, the fourth overall pick in the 2015 amateur draft, and two other pitching prospects.

A 39-year-old switch-hitter, Beltran has been the Yankees' top offensive player, leading the team with a .304 batting average, 22 homers and 64 RBIs. The trade Monday follows deals that sent relievers Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs and Andrew Miller to Cleveland.

Beltran signed a $45 million, three-year contract before the 2014 season but played with an elbow bone spur during much of his first season in New York and got off to a slow start in 2015 following surgery. He will be eligible for free agency after this year's World Series.

---

3:35 p.m.

The AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians acquired outfielder Brandon Guyer from Tampa Bay for two minor leaguers on Monday.

Cleveland sent outfielder Nathan Lukes and right-hander Jhonleider Salinas to Tampa Bay.

Guyer, a right-handed hitter, is batting .241 with seven home runs and 18 RBIs in 63 games. He has been hit by a pitch 23 times, a major league high, and is batting .344 (22 for 64) with four homers against left-handers.

The 30-year-old Guyer played all three outfield positions with the Rays this season. He spent most of June on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

3:05 p.m.

A person with knowledge of the trade says the San Francisco Giants have acquired left-handed reliever Will Smith from the Brewers to bolster their bullpen for the stretch run, sending backup catcher Andrew Susac and pitching prospect Phil Bickford to Milwaukee.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because it hadn't been announced.

The NL West-leading Giants have struggled mightily since the All-Star break and had been looking to upgrade a relief corps that has been so reliable in recent years, helping them win World Series championships in 2010, `12 and `14. San Francisco has won two straight games since losing 11 of 13 following the All-Star Game.

The 27-year-old Smith is 1-3 with a 3.68 ERA this season in 27 games and 22 innings.

Colin Rea is heading back to the San Diego Padres after leaving with an injury in his first start since being traded to Miami.

The Marlins acquired Rea on Friday in a seven-player deal with the Padres, but he had to leave Saturday's game against St. Louis in the fourth inning and was put on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow sprain.

San Diego announced Monday it reacquired Rea from Miami and sent minor league pitcher Luis Castillo back to the Marlins. Castillo had gone from Miami to San Diego in Friday's deal.

Miami acquired Rea and right-hander Andrew Cashner on Friday as part of a push for a postseason spot, but Rea is of little use to the Marlins if he's hurt.

2:17 p.m.

The Oakland Athletics traded right fielder Josh Reddick and left-hander Rich Hill to the contending Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday for a trio of pitching prospects.

The deal was announced two hours before the deadline for completing trades without waivers.

The A's received minor leaguers Jharel Cotton and Grant Holmes, along with Frankie Montas, who made seven appearances with the White Sox last year.

Hill, who signed a $6 million, one-year contract with Oakland during the offseason, is on the disabled list with a pesky blister on the middle finger of his throwing hand that hasn't healed. He had been scheduled to pitch Sunday in Cleveland before the DL stint.

Two people with knowledge of the trade say the Oakland Athletics have traded right fielder Josh Reddick and left-hander Rich Hill to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a trio of right-handers.

The A's receive minor leaguers Jharel Cotton and Grant Holmes, along with Frankie Montas - who made seven appearances with the White Sox last year - in the deal. Both people spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Monday because the trade had yet to be formally announced by either club.

Hill, who signed a $6 million, one-year contract with Oakland during the offseason, is on the disabled list with a pesky blister on the middle finger of his throwing hand that hasn't healed. He had been scheduled to pitch Sunday in Cleveland before the DL stint.

1:31 p.m.

The Boston Red Sox have acquired left-handed reliever Fernando Abad from the Minnesota Twins for minor-league pitcher Pat Light.

The deal was first announced Monday before the non-waiver trade deadline, giving the Red Sox another veteran for the bullpen in their pursuit of Baltimore and Toronto in the AL East race.

Abad posted a 2.65 ERA in 39 appearances for the Twins, making $1.25 million this year. He'll be eligible for free agency after the 2017 season. The 30-year-old Abad has held opponents to a .220 batting average this year. He came up with Houston and also pitched for Washington and Oakland.

The right-handed Light has a 2.32 ERA in 31 innings for Triple-A Pawtucket.
