The San Francisco Giants added the biggest available name at the deadline by making a trade with the New York Mets for Carlos Beltran.
The Giants needed the pop in Beltran's bat in the middle of the lineup, especially since they lost Buster Posey to an ankle injury earlier in the season.
Beltran has always been a good hitter at AT&T Park, collecting 27 hits on 86 at-bats there in his career.
He also provides some stability in the corner outfield for the Giants, who had been trotting out subpar players like Nate Schierholtz every day. When combined with the fact that Andres Torres has regressed this season, the Giants really needed some outfield help.
The Giants had to give up a top level prospect in Zack Wheeler to land Beltran, but they still come out of the deadline as a big winner.
