With A.L. East title slipping away, Yankees trade for J.A

With A.L. East title slipping away, Yankees trade for J.A”

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.

Happ has a US$13 million salary in the final season of a $36 million, three-year contract, and the Yankees are responsible for the remaining $4,543,011.

This was Happ's second stint with the Jays, after he was traded to Toronto from the Houston Astros midway through the 2012 season and traded to the Seattle Mariners in following the 2014 season. Cashman and the Yankees were on the hunt for veteran starting pitching help in the offseason, but they didn't get it.

Being traded at the deadline is nothing new for Happ. The lefty starter finished sixth in Cy Young voting in 2016, posting a 3.18 ERA and going 20-4. Despite setting career bests in strikeouts and ERA a year ago, the right-hander struggled mightily earlier this season. Acquiring Happ was an immediate response to the Boston Red Sox trading for Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Nathan Eovaldi on Wednesday.

Man United line up alternative targets for Harry Maguire
Yerry Mina and Gary Cahill are two players the Leicester manager could move for as Maguire's value has skyrocketed after the World Cup.

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.

Therefore, Happ could play a major role down the stretch for the Yankees. Rookie starters Domingo German (2-6, 5.68 ERA) and Jonathan Loaisiga (2-0, 3.00 ERA) both showed glimpses of promise, but can not be trusted. Despite his struggles, Drury is a.267 career hitter who can play multiple positions in the infield. A team can ask for whatever they want especially when they're in clear selling mode but in the end, the market dictates what teams need and are willing to give up.

Both teams did well in this trade. 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. Despite that dip, Cashman said he saw "more upside".

In 19 games against the Red Sox, Happ is 7-4 with a 2.98 ERA.

"(The Jays) just said, 'be ready to play. He was one of the most entertaining Blue Jays players to watch in the first half of 2018, slashing.265/.328/.497 with 11 home runs in his first 50 games.

The Yankees were one of three teams who had scouts in attendance at Rogers Centre for what was likely Happ's last start as a Blue Jay.

McKinney appeared in Single-A, Double-A, Triple-A and played two games in the Majors this season for NY, but spent most of his time in Triple-A Scranton/Walkes-Barre.
