Yankees Acquire JA Happ From Toronto For Brandon Drury And Billy McKinney

31 July 2018

McKinney went from the A's to the Cubs in the Jeff Samardzija trade, the Cubs to the Yankees in the Aroldis Chapman trade, and now to the Blue Jays in the Happ trade. 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.

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. The 35-year-old, whose best year with the Jays the first time around came with a 4.22 ERA and an 11-11 record, was considered a changed pitcher in his second go in Toronto, which included a 20-win year and a 3.18 ERA in 2016.

The two-time All-Star reliever, acquired by the Yankees from Baltimore late Tuesday night for Dillon Tate and two other minor leaguers, retired all three Thunder batters he faced on three pitches.

This makes it Iran's second-largest client after China , and the nation that is struggling the most as the sanctions' start date approaches.

If the Yankees have any chance at all to catch the Red Sox for the AL East crown then improving their starting rotation was a must.

Drury was supposed to be the Yankees everyday third baseman, but he has dealt with various injuries throughout the season and lost his job to rookie Miguel Andujar. And on Thursday, they scored arguably the best starter available, veteran lefty J.A. Happ. His ERA has fluctuated month to month, and he has had a awful July, posting an 0-3 record with a 7.41 ERA through four starts. It remains to be seen what the new rotation will look like, but a four-man rotation in the playoffs (if they earn a bid) might look like Severino, Tanaka, Sabathia and Happ.

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

Despite that dip, Cashman said he saw "more upside". The Yankees didn't necessarily need help at the back end of games, with their bullpen leading the major leagues with a 2.76 ERA even before Britton showed up. "I want to be a Yankee one of these days at the big league level, '" Bell said. Although he hit.176 with just one home run and seven RBIs in 18 games this season for the Yankees, he recorded 13 homers and drove in 63 runs while hitting.267 in 135 games for the Arizona Diamondbacks previous year.

Agricultural trade negotiations have traditionally been the hardest in global free trade talks due to political sensitivities. WTO Director-General Roberto Azevedo said Wednesday he is hoping to "stop this trend" of growing restrictions on trade.

One thing working against the Blue Jays here is Stroman's value isn't particularly high.

In 23 games with the Pirates this season, Osuna, 25, is batting.196 with two home runs, two doubles and seven RBIs. The Yankees are Happ's sixth big league team, as reported by ESPN.

McKinney, 23, made his Major League debut with the Yankees in 2018, going 1-for-4 in two games before being placed on the disabled list for almost two months with a left shoulder sprain after colliding into the left field wall at Rogers Centre.
