Bud Norris was acquired by the Baltimore Orioles in a deadline deal, according to MLB.com's Joey Nowak.

In return, the Orioles sent outfielder L.J. Hoes, left-handed pitcher Josh Hader and a competitive balance pick to the Houston Astros. The competitive-balance pick is No. 33, which had a signing bonus worth $1.65 million in the 2013 MLB Draft, according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

Hoes is now considered the No. 18 prospect in the Astros' system, and was batting .304 with three home runs and 40 RBI at Triple-A Norfolk.

Hader is an even higher-rated prospect, now ranked No. 13 in the Astros' system. So far this year, Hader is 3-6 with a 2.65 ERA in Class-A.

The move is nice for the Orioles because it gives them another starter for their rotation, while the Astros show they are in continual rebuild mode.

So, who were the winners and losers of the trade?
