Yankees Trade for J.A. Happ

Blue Jays

Five Names To Watch As MLB Trade Deadline Approaches

The Yankees only needed to make one reciprocal move for those two additions, as the inclusion of Brandon Drury and Billy McKinney in the Happ deal opened up two 40-man roster spots and one on the 25-man roster, and Happ will not report to the team until at least Friday.

Since a particularly ugly outing against, ironically, the Yankees, Happ has bounced back. The Yankees were just 14-14 in their previous 28 games.

Cessa, who pitched 5 1/3 innings of two-run ball in Wednesday's loss to the Rays, has a 3.10 ERA in 20 1/3 innings across seven games (three starts) in pinstripes this season. He joins a rotation that includes Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia and Sonny Gray. His ERA of 4.18 on the season comfortably makes him the Yankees' fourth starter at the moment. May put a dent in those numbers, though, as Happ put up a 4.25 ERA.

Shares in Alphabet were unchanged while those in Apple and Netflix slipped just a third of a percent. As for Facebook , it actually made money in the quarter, just not enough to appease Wall Street.

"In the three years I've known (Happ), he's only become more and more driven and more and more focused, and it's really inspiring to be around him", Atkins said. Now we'll see if these moves right what has been, for them anyway, a rough patch in recent weeks.

As for rotation depth, the Yankees continue to claim that the organization's newly-anointed top prospect (according to MLB Pipeline), Justus Sheffield, will be making his MLB debut before long. He was the Yankees' best pitcher in the playoffs past year after producing a successful second half, but overall he's been inconsistent over the last season and a half. A trade may not be imminent, as Joel Sherman of the New York Post hears that a deal is "unlikely" to take place tonight. He went on the disabled list after the team's eighth game because of blurred vision and migraines, and he lost his job to rookie Miguel Andujar.

The 23-year-old McKinney was selected by Oakland with the 24th overall pick in the 2013 amateur draft, was traded to the Chicago Cubs with Addison Russell and Dan Straily for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel in July 2014, then dealt to the Yankees along with Gleyber Torres and Adam Warren for Chapman in July 2016.

USA announces billions to help farmers hurt by tariffs

While I know Gibbons will need to get everyone some regular playing time, I hope there's one priority above all else with the group, and that's keeping Gurriel Jr.in the lineup with regularity.

McKinney has played two games for the Yankees, filling in on March 30-31 because of injuries to other outfielders.

This is the type of player that fits the mould of the Blue Jays because he's ready to play in the major leagues and the team controls his future. He also hit.294/.403/.447 (144 wRC+) with five home runs in 55 games with Triple-A Scranton.
