PITTSBURGH -- In the mix of a heated playoff race, the Toronto Blue Jays added depth in search of a second straight postseason appearance. On the fringe of the wild card in the National League, the Pittsburgh Pirates did their best to clear the books for 2017.Toronto acquired pitcher Francisco Liriano from the Pirates on Monday in exchange for Drew Hutchinson, hoping a return to form by the veteran starter will help the Blue Jays escape a crowded log jam near the top of the AL East.The move was the latest and highest profile of a busy deadline day for Toronto, which also nabbed right-hander Mike Bolsinger from the Los Angeles Dodgers for right-hander Jesse Chavez and $1.15 million and received right-hander Scott Feldman from the Houston Astros for minor league pitcher Lupe Chavez. Toronto also picked up a pair of promising minor league prospects from Pittsburgh in catcher Reese McGuire and outfielder Harold Ramirez.Liriano gives the Blue Jays an experienced starter to replace 24-year-old Aaron Sanchez in the rotation. Sanchez is 11-1 and hasnt lost since April 22, but hes also at 139 1/3 innings this season. His previous high was 133 1/3 across the majors and minors in 2014.Toronto has been planning to move Sanchez to the bullpen to reduce his workload.What we did decide was before the deadline we felt like our best chance for us to win the World Series was if Aaron Sanchez was a part of the team, Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said Monday. So we felt like the best odds of Aaron Sanchez being a part of the team was at some point a transition to the bullpen. So with that in mind we considered alternatives and now we have the option to do that.The Pirates were busy too, but coming off a weekend sweep at the hands of Milwaukee and with hopes for a fourth consecutive playoff appearance fading entering August, Pittsburgh instead chose to jettison expensive disappointments Liriano and Jon Niese, who was shipped back to the New York Mets for reliever Antonio Bastardo. Pittsburgh also acquired right-hander Ivan Nova from the Yankees for two players to be named.Liriano revived his career in Pittsburgh, going 35-25 from 2013-15 while helping the Pirates to three straight playoff berths. He has struggled this season, posting a 6-11 record with a 5.46 ERA. Pittsburgh general manager Neal Huntington called the decision to move Liriano challenging but one he could not pass up, even if it meant throwing McGuire and Ramirez in the deal, because Liriano is signed through 2017 and is due $13.66 million next season.The financial flexibility and adding Drew Hutchinson with our ability to reallocate those dollars onto this club in different ways going forward (were attractive), Huntington said.The trade came shortly after the Pirates sent Niese back to the New York Mets. Sent from New York to Pittsburgh last December for second baseman Neil Walker, Niese never found a rhythm during his time with the Pirates. He went 8-6 with a 4.91 ERA and was moved to the bullpen earlier this month.The 29-year-old Niese is making $9 million in the final season of a deal he signed with the Mets in March 2012, a contract that includes a $10 million team option for 2017 with a $500,000 buyout.Pittsburgh enters the final two months of the season with just one starter remaining from the opening day rotation: Gerrit Cole. Niese and Liriano have been traded while Jeff Locke and Juan Nicasio have been moved to the bullpen, though Locke will get a spot start this week in Atlanta.Huntington stressed the Pirates still believe they can compete this season and believes in a way addition by subtraction might help. Nova will take Lirianos spot in the rotation. Ryan Vogelsong, out since May with facial fractures, will return this week. Rookie Jameson Taillon has shown signs of promise and rookie Tyler Glasnow will also be back in the rotation when he returns from shoulder fatigue.We had some guys that werent getting the job done, Huntington said. How do we improve our rotation to give this club thats three games out in the loss column an opportunity to regain (positioning)? The starting pitching was our biggest challenge and we felt like we addressed that somewhat internally and somewhat externally.Over the weekend, Pittsburgh sent All-Star closer Mark Melancon to Washington in exchange for hard-throwing reliever Felipe Rivero and minor league pitcher Taylor Hearn.Feldman gives the Blue Jays some versatility. The 33-year-old went 5-3 with a 2.90 ERA in 26 appearances for the Astros this season. Hes 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 hes gone 4-1 with a 2.41 ERA in relief.The Blue Jays were playing at Houston on Monday night, making Feldmans move pretty easy.Its always weird getting traded to begin with. It was kind of convenient actually, he said. Just drove to the field today like normal and just switch clubhouses. Say bye to all the old teammates, coaches, everybody.The 28-year-old Bolsinger was 1-4 with a 6.83 ERA for the Dodgers this season. Hes 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.The cash payment from Toronto to the Dodgers, due Sept. 1, is to offset part of Chavezs $4 million salary.---AP Sports Writer Noah Trister in Detroit contributed to this report.

LOS ANGELES -- As good as the Dodgers have been at home recently, Kenta Maeda hasnt enjoyed the same good fortune.His struggles at Dodger Stadium culminated in a 4-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night that cost Los Angeles its five-game overall winning streak and ended its run of 10 consecutive home victories.Maeda (7-6) gave up a three-run homer to Manny Machado in the fifth inning, helping the Orioles end their five-game skid. The right-hander tied season highs in runs allowed (four) and hits (seven) in four-plus innings, equaling the shortest outing of his career.Maeda struck out five and walked three. He fell to 3-6 in nine home starts this season.Youve got to make major league hitters respect your fastball, Dodgers manager Dave Robert said. He had an opportunity to put guys away and they got back in the count. Its a tough way to live.Maeda came into the game with a 4-2 record and a 2.21 ERA in his last seven starts since May 28.I didnt execute my pitches, he said through a translator. Its more of a control issue rather than a specific pitch.Hitters are capitalizing against Maeda on their third time through the lineup.From the first inning on, it seemed like Kenta was laboring, Roberts said.Machado, a newly named All-Star starter who turns 24 on Wednesday, sent a 2-2 pitch from Maeda into the upper corner of the left-field pavilion, putting the AL East-leading Orioles ahead 4-1. Machados 19th homer would have registered 453 feet had it landed unimpeded, according to Statcast.The Orioles lead the majors with 129 home runs; they had 56 in June.Chris Tillman (11-2) allowed one run and five hits in seven innings, struck out two and walked two while facing the Dodgers for the first time in his career. The right-hander from Anaheim had his career-high nine-game winning streak snapped last week.Zach Britton pitched the ninth to earn his AL-leading 24th save in as many chances. The Dodgers briefly threatened, with Adrian Gonzalezs leadoff single before Yasiel Puig struck out and pinch-hitter Justin Turners long fly was caught at the wall by right fielder Joey Rickard. Howie Kendrick struck out swinging to end the game.Relievers Brad Brach and Britton combined for five strikeouts.The Orioles tied the game 1-all in the second when Jonathan Schooop flied into a forceout from right fielder to shortstop, scoring Mark Trumbo.ddddddddddddDodgers rookie shortstop Corey Seager doubled in the first inning, extending his hitting streak to 18 games, the NLs longest this season. He scored on Gonzalezs single, giving the Dodgers a 1-0 lead.Los Angeles didnt muster a hit past the fifth inning.DODGERS ALL-STARSAt 22 years, 69 days, Seager is the youngest position player to be named an All-Star in Dodgers history. Hes the clubs second rookie shortstop to be selected, joining Bill Grabarkewitz in 1970, and the first shortstop since Rafael Furcal in 2010.Closer Kenley Jansen joined Seager as a first-time All-Star in his seventh season and is the teams first reliever to be named since Jonathan Broxton and Hong-Chih Kuo in 2010. Jansen ranks second among NL relievers with 25 saves. He became the Dodgers career saves leader earlier this season.Left-hander Clayton Kershaw became the first Dodger to make six straight All-Star games since Fernando Valenzuela in 1981-86, but hell miss the game in San Diego with a herniated disc. He leads the majors with a 1.79 ERA.URIAS TO MINORSThe Dodgers sent 19-year-old pitcher Julio Urias to Triple-A Oklahoma City after eight starts in an effort to control his innings. The left-hander was 1-2 with a 4.95 ERA after making his big league debut on May 27 at the New York Mets. The team has Urias on an unspecified innings limit this season. He was scheduled to be sent down earlier, but several injuries to the rotation forced an extended stay.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: RHP Darren ODay, on the DL with a right hamstring strain, could pitch a rehab game over next weeks All-Star break. Its not a good injury, Showalter said. If he pushes it, hes going to miss the whole year.UP NEXTOrioles: RHP Kevin Gausman (1-6, 3.97 ERA) has received 3.20 runs of support and the team is 5-9 in his 14 starts.Dodgers: RHP Bud Norris (4-7, 3.89) makes his second start since being acquired from Atlanta last week. He pitched for the Orioles from 2013-15, with a 21-20 record and a 4.65 ERA. His best year for the Os was in 2014, when he posted career highs in wins (15) and ERA (3.65).
