Yankees fix their biggest weakness by acquiring J.A. Happ

The Hot Stove is Happ-ening

No return has been announced for Happ quite yet, but if the Blue Jays are dealing within their own division, then the Yankees will nearly certainly be giving up a quality prospect or two to make the deal happen. In his start that immediately preceded that one, a July 7 appearance against the Yankees, Happ couldn't get out of the third inning before walking six and allowing six runs. Within the past several days, general manager Brian Cashman has dealt for Baltimore Orioles closer Zach Britton and Toronto Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ. Happ slots immediately into a starting rotation in desperate need of one more quality piece. In recent days, Cashman employed an old trade-deadline approach in order to ensure he didn't let the lefty get away.

Two seasons ago, he went 20-4 with a 3.18 ERA (195.0 IP, 69 ER) for Toronto, tying for second in the Majors in wins and ranking sixth in 2016 American League Cy Young Award voting.

Malaysia's new government, which took power in May, has said the hunt could be resumed but only if new evidence comes to light. The Malaysian police previously concluded there were no unusual activity on the home simulator.

Drury, who was acquired for Taylor Wiedner and Nick Solak from Arizona this winter, was plagued by an early season vision issue, and the emergence of rookie Miguel Andujar, ultimately spending most of the season in AAA Scranton. "They want to get some pitchers in there that are going to do a good job and get some guys out". He felt they might help drive down the price for the pitcher. The Dallas, Texas, native was acquired by the Yankees along with RHP Adam Warren, INF Gleyber Torres and OF Rashad Crawford from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for LHP Aroldis Chapman on July 25, 2016. And in his last 10 starts against the Red Sox dating back to 2015, he has posted a 1.78 ERA with a.202 opponent batting average. 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. Both Drury and McKinney have potential, which means that the Yankees could have held onto them for the rest of the season and could have included them in a trade in December or January.

In Happ, the Yankees acquire a solid veteran who is familiar with the AL East. The Yankees may have given up a lot for Britton, but at least he has been one of the best relievers in baseball for the past five years. "It felt like a stare-down contest", Cashman said. There, the 23 year old batted just.230, but displayed some power, hitting 13 homers while driving in 32 runs in 54 games. This is his fourth big league stint of the year.
