Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ traded to Yankees

Blue Jays

In addition, Happ had a poor defensive team behind him with Toronto, plus the Yankees could protect him earlier in the game with their deep, talented bullpen.

Happ will provide NY with a stabilizing presence in their rotation as the southpaw has been one of the most consistent starters in baseball in recent seasons. He is 14-8 with a 3.98 ERA in 32 starts over the last three years against AL East opponents and also has pitched 10 postseason games with Toronto and Philadelphia. A lefty starter who can consistently get outs is always a hot commodity at the deadline and the Blue Jays have been asking a hefty price for him.

The Yankees entered Thursday on pace for 104 wins but trailing the Red Sox by 5½ games.

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

The Yankees have positioned themselves as perhaps the most aggressive buyer in this summer's trade market. He was 10-3 with a 3.62 ERA through June before going 0-3 with a 7.41 ERA in four July starts. Some are not as thrilled with acquiring the 20th ranked prospect from the Yankees system but people should remember that the Yankees system is highly touted. Britton added $4,387,097 to the Yankees payroll.

Pep Guardiola delivers his verdict on Liverpool's summer transfer business
Today has seen the unveiling of Manchester City's new away kit which was revealed by the club on its Twitter account this morning. Zlatan Ibrahimovic said he was "immature" during their time together at Barcelona.

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. It's the fourth time it's happened during his 12-year career. On April 24, Happ allowed one run in seven innings, striking out 10 and walking none. Instead, the Yankees traded Brandon Drury, who was a piece that looked like he could be a key member of the core but ended up being pushed to the side, even though that didn't have anything to do with poor play. "We'll have opportunities for guys to play, there's no doubt about that".

Drury played in just 10 games for NY since and spent most of the season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

McKinney, a first rounder of the A's in 2013, was included as a throw-in in larger trades that sent him first to the Cubs and then to the Yankees in the Aroldis Chapman deal in 2016. He played in two games with the Yankees in March, going 1-for-4.

Five days from the non-waiver trade deadline the Toronto Blue Jays have cashed in their biggest trade chip. The Yankees are attempting to shore up their starting rotation to push for the division title and avoid the one-game crapshoot of the wild-card game.
