Yankees Trade for J.A. Happ

Yankees Trade for J.A. Happ

The acquisition of J.A. Happ from the Blue Jays certainly does that, but the Yankees had to give up real value to get the veteran southpaw. Happ has struggled recently - he's allowed 26 runs in his last five starts and 31.1 innings - so the Yankees are clearly banking on his track record. Cashman and the Yankees were on the hunt for veteran starting pitching help in the offseason, but they didn't get it.

Atkins did not budge, and a day later it was Cashman who blinked, trading for Happ despite a price tag that rival executives considered to be a clear overpay for a rental. He now owns a 4.18 ERA (3.84 FIP) with strikeout (27.4%) and ground ball (44.6%) rates that will play in Yankee Stadium.

NY began the day 5 1/2 games behind Boston, the AL East leader.

At this point, the Blue Jays should probably just take whatever they can get for Granderson, which won't be very much in return; perhaps some salary relief or a fringe prospect at best. Rookie starters Domingo German (2-6, 5.68 ERA) and Jonathan Loaisiga (2-0, 3.00 ERA) both showed glimpses of promise, but can not be trusted. Drury is clearly a serious young man and a young man who is on a mission to prove to the baseball world that he is destined to become a standout major leaguer - even if there are as many naysayers as supporters as to what he brings to the table as a ball player.

Happ is 7-4 with a 2.98 ERA in 19 games against the Red Sox.

McKinney, acquired in the 2016 Aroldis Chapman deal, was stuck in Scranton behind a talented outfield.

What have the Yankees done at the trade deadline so far?

He will make his presence felt in the postseason, but there is only so much he can do in the regular season.

Drury has played in just 10 games for NY since and has spent most of the season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he is hitting.294 with five homers and 30 RBIs in 55 games.

"I'm ready for whatever situation", Britton said.

Britton reported to the Yankees two days after he was acquired from Baltimore for three pitching prospects. "That's what it's all about is trying to figure out a way to get the big league club a trophy and a bunch of rings". Happ signed a three-year contract with the Blue Jays on November 30, 2015, and will be a free agent at the end of the 2018 season. There, the 23 year old batted just.230, but displayed some power, hitting 13 homers while driving in 32 runs in 54 games.

McKinney appeared in Single-A, Double-A, Triple-A and played two games in the Majors this season for NY, but spent most of his time in Triple-A Scranton/Walkes-Barre.
