Aug. 1: Mets wrap Deadline sale with trades of Verlander, Pham, Leone
The Mets were one of this year's busiest Trade Deadline sellers, trading away Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, David Robertson, Mark Canha, Tommy Pham and Dominic Leone. 

The club reportedly fielded trade offers for Pete Alonso but ended up holding onto the All-Star first baseman.

Adam Ottavino and Brooks Raley are also staying in New York, as are Carlos Carrasco, José Quintana and Omar Narváez.

Meanwhile, the Mets acquired relief pitchers Phil Bickford and Adam Kolarek from the Dodgers for cash considerations.
