The Major League Baseball trade deadline was Tuesday evening.

The Cincinnati Reds, who have not been in contention since a 3-22 start in April, were active leading up to the deadline, dealing veteran players and key pieces for prospects as the deadline approaches.

Here are the moves they made:

Thursday: The Reds traded outfielder Tyler Naquin and left-handed pitcher Phillip Diehl to the New York Mets for minor leaguers Jose Acuna, a right-handed pitcher, and Hector Rodriguez, a centerfielder.

Friday: The Reds traded All-Star Luis Castillo to the Seattle Mariners for four minor league prospects: infielders Noelvi Marte and Edwin Arroyo; and right-handers Levi Stoudt and Andrew Moore.

Monday: The Reds traded outfielder Tommy Pham to the Boston Red Sox for a player to be named later or cash.

Tuesday: The Reds traded starting pitcher Tyler Mahle to the Minnesota Twins for three of the franchise’s top-25 prospects: infielder Spencer Steer and Christian Encarnacion-Strand and left-handed pitcher Steven Hajjar.

The Reds then traded infielder Brandon Drury to the San Diego Padres for minor league shortstop Victor Acosta.
