Trade Deadline Recap : Yankees

Yankees Trade Deadline Recap

The Yankees made some big moves in the trade deadline for second year in a row. This year they were buyers instead of sellers. The Yankees acquired a little bit of everything and improved at all their weak spots. The Yankees acquired Todd Frazier, Tommy Kahnle and David Robertson from the White Sox. They also got Jamie Garcia from the Twins. Finally today they capped it off with the Sonny Gray blockbuster. The Yankees did all this and only traded one top 5 rated prospect. They dealt some notable prospects in Jorge Mateo, James Kaprilean, Dustin Fowler, and Blake Rutherford however with so many prospects and only so many roster spots the moves were smart. The Yankees moves set them up as legitimate World Series contenders.
