The Cincinnati Reds completed a pair of trades at the MLB Trade Deadline and are receiving reliever Archie Bradley and outfielder Brian Goodwin according to multiple reports.
Even at 15-19, the Cincinnati Reds were buyers, getting Archie Bradley and outfielder Brian Goodwin. The National League is wide open, and with Trevor Bauer and Sonny Gray, the Reds could be very dangerous in the postseason.

Bradley, 28, has been a solid releiver in his career with the Diamondbacks. He has a 3.96 ERA in his career, but had a 1.73 ERA in 63 appearances in 2017.
Goodwin is a 29-year-old outfielder who is batting .242 with four home runs and 17 RBIs this season. For his career, Goodwin has a .254 average, 40 home runs and 124 RBIs.
Cincinnati will give up utility man Josh VanMeter and outfielder Stuart Fairchild to the Diamondbacks for Bradley. VanMeter has struggled this season, hitting .059 from the plate. Fairchild is a 24-year-old who has hit .272 in the minors.
In the trade with the Angels, the Reds will send left-handed pitcher Packy Naughton and a player to be named later or cash to Los Angeles. Naughton is a 24-year-old with a 3.59 ERA in the minors. He played in Double-A and Single-A last season.
Although they sit at 15-19 right now, the Reds have made it clear with these trades that they will make a push for the playoffs.
