Trades

As the MLB trade deadline approaches, many teams are looking to make deals. The Yankees have been one of the most active teams, making several trades in the past week. Who did they get?

Sonny Gray

On July 31, 2017, the Yankees acquired Sonny Gray from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for outfielder Dustin Fowler, infielder James Kaprielian, and infielder Jorge Mateo.

Jaime Garcia

The Yankees have acquired lefthander Jaime Garcia from the Twins, the teams announced on Sunday night. Garcia is the second starting pitcher picked up by New York in less than 24 hours, as the team also acquired right-hander Sonny Gray from the Oakland Athletics on Saturday.

Garcia, who had been pitching for Triple-A Rochester, gives the Yankees another experienced arm to help them down the stretch as they try to stay ahead of the pack in the AL East. The 31-year-old is a veteran of eight major league seasons, and while his numbers this year (5.07 ERA in 13 starts) haven’t been great, he has shown flashes of brilliance throughout his career.

Todd Frazier

The New York Yankees have reportedly acquired third baseman Todd Frazier, relief pitcher Tommy Kahnle, and outfielder David Robertson from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for outfield prospects Blake Rutherford, Ian Clarkin, and Tito Polo, as well as right-handed pitcher Tyler Clippard.

Conclusion

It’s official, the Yankees have made a trade! The Bombers have acquired pitcher Gerrit Cole from the Houston Astros in exchange for infielder IkeWarren, right-handed pitcher Jared Coleman, and shortstop prospect

The Yankees gave up some good young talent to get Cole, but he is one of the best pitchers in baseball and should help solidify their rotation. With Cole, the Yankees now have one of the best starting pitching staffs in baseball.
