Yankees Acquire JA Happ In Trade With Blue Jays

Yankees exploring their Aaron Judge emergency options

The Bombers acquired pitcher J.A. Happ in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday. He's in the final year of a three-year, $36 million deal. He has spent most of the season with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, batting.230 (48-for-209) with 26 R, eight doubles, five triples, 13 HR and 32 RBI in 54 games.

They add one of the best starting pitchers available without surrendering a top prospect or a key piece from their big-league roster. Some Yankees fans may not be happy to see him go because of the power, but he really is expendable for a team in the Yankees' position.

As for future trades, the Blue Jays GM was rather tight lipped, not mentioning any players in particular that have been involved in trade talks.

What's Next for the Blue Jays?

While the addition of Drury further complicates the Blue Jays' already-crowded infield mix, Atkins noted that the best organizations have a surplus of MLB-calibre contributors. "We'll have opportunities for guys to play, there's no doubt about that". A rival evaluator said he still projects as an everyday player because of his above-average hitting ability and average power. He has a $621,900 salary and has 2 years, 99 days of major league service, making it possible he could be eligible for salary arbitration for the first time next winter.

He also asserted, without elaborating, in post: "The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong! ". Trump's campaign had said it knew nothing about any payment to ex-centerfold Karen McDougal .

"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. 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.

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.

During his limited big league time this season Drury hit.176/.263/.275 (50 wRC+) with one home run in 18 games while playing first, second, and third bases.

Baseball America ranked McKinney 23rd among Yankees prospects entering the season, and he now ranks 20th in New York's deep system, according to MLB Pipeline. Two years later, the Cubs flipped McKinney, Gleyber Torres, Rashad Crawford and Adam Warren to the Yankees for Aroldis Chapman.
