Yankees add Frazier, Robertson, Kahnle to roster

The Chicago White Sox have traded Todd Frazier

First of all, the Yankees are obviously playing things aggressively this year, so the Jays have to know they're dealing with at least three teams in their own division who plan on making the playoffs this year (Rays, Red Sox, and Yankees are all now in playoff position). The White Sox announced it was a done deal shortly after their game with the Los Angeles Dodgers ended. The Yankees drafted Rutherford in the first round (18th overall) of the 2016 draft.

Frazier, after winning the Little League World Series with Toms River, was invited to stand on the field with the New York Yankees and was paired on the field next to legendary Captain Derek Jeter. In 33 ⅓ innings over 31 games with the White Sox this season, he has a 2.70 E.R.A. with a record of 4-2. Regardless, first base has been a serious problem for the Yanks this year and even upgrading to league average there makes them a much stronger team, and that's without the unspoken benefit of keeping Frazier away from the rival Red Sox.

Blake Rutherford, the Yankees' top outfield prospect, is heading to Chicago along with two more minor-leaguers - left-hander Ian Clarkin and outfielder Tito Polo - and veteran right-hander Tyler Clippard. Boston's starting third baseman, Deven Marrero, has batted just.218 this year, while its bullpen is populated mostly by overachievers who look due for regression in the second half.

This is about as exciting a deal for Yankees fans as it gets. Robertson has 13 saves, a 2.70 ERA and a.96 WHIP. Once the deal between the White Sox and Cubs became official, the question was, which player is next to go?

Berrios is coming off his worst outing of the season when he gave up seven runs - two earned - in 1 2/3 innings in a loss at Houston on Friday. The Birmingham, Alabama native signed a four-year, $46MM contract prior to the 2015 season, which means he is in the third season of the pact and is still owed $17.92MM.

The coup of the deal were the additions of Robertson and Kahnle. The 20-year old is slashing.281/.342/.391 in 71 games in A-Ball.

"I followed my game plan, but they were ahead in most of the counts, and that's how they were able to get to me early", Berrios told the Minneapolis Star Tribune after the loss to the Astros. He joins infielder Yoán Moncada (1), outfielder Eloy Jiménez (8), right-hander Michael Kopech (11), outfielder Luis Robert (23), right-handers Lucas Giolito (28), Reynaldo López (36), Carson Fulmer (59) and Dylan Cease (63) and catcher Zack Collins (68) on the MLB.com Top 100 list.
