Yankees nab starting pitcher J.A. Happ in trade with Blue Jays

Blue Jays J.A. Happ pitches to the Rays during a game

Feinsand feels the number of teams in on Happ will result in a nice trade return for the Blue Jays. But Atkins said positional depth is necessary for any playoff-calibre team. The day before, on a conference call with reporters, Cashman talked up his bullpen and young pitching prospects as a strong fallback in case he couldn't add a starter. "If it means that someone goes to triple-A, that is a good scenario for an organization".

Happ, a first-time all-stat this season at age 35, immediately brings some stability to that group, along with an extensive track record that includes a 3.72 ERA in 10 postseason appearances, including three starts. NY started the day 5 1/2 games behind Boston in the American League East Division but are well in front of the rest of the league for the first wild-card spot.

In 57 plate appearances at the Major League Baseball level this year, he's hit just.176/.263/.275, but he fared better at triple-A, hitting.294/.403/.447 in 233 total plate appearances with Scranton before re-joining the Yankees in July.

A 12-year major league veteran, Happ is 102-82 with a 3.95 ERA for Philadelphia (2007-10), Houston (2010-12), Toronto (2013-14, 2016-18), Seattle (2015) and Pittsburgh (2015). According to Lindsey Adler of the Athletic, Atkins told Drury that he'll be in the Blue Jays lineup tomorrow night as the Jays take on the White Sox in Chicago. Although both are viable big league talents, both were expendable for the Yankees, with Drury losing his third base job to rookie Miguel Andujar early in the season and McKinney unable to crack the team's high-powered outfield and spending most of this season at Class AAA.

On that review, it is hard to understand the end of the tape as far as the form of proposed payment to AMI owner David Pecker. Trump also expressed concern that the recording had been terminated "while I was presumably saying positive things".

Severe migraines and blurry vision sent Drury to the disabled list for most of April, but he returned to action on May 10 and has played consistently since then. He now sits at a 4.18 ERA on the present season, with peripherals suggesting he has been even more effective than the results would suggest.

The 25-year-old isn't yet arbitration-eligible, though that could change this off-season if he collects enough service time to qualify for Super Two status. He also appeared in 55 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season, hitting.294 (58-for-197) with 30 R, 13 doubles, five HR and 30 RBI en route to being named to the International League All-Star team.

McKinney appeared in two games at Rogers Centre this season but crashed hard into the left-centre field wall on March 31, injuring his left shoulder.
