Yankees Acquire Todd Frazier, David Robertson, and Tommy Kahnle

San Francisco Giants infielder Eduardo Nunez

Entering Tuesday night, Headley was slashing a respectable.258/.341/.371, but he's come up short in the power department to the tune of four home runs. "We also hope Todd Frazier can stabilize the infield as well".

This is the first trade since the White Sox began rebuilding to include multiple players from the White Sox end.

The White Sox are shedding payroll with their rebuild, so moving David Robertson became part of the plan as well.

Rick Hahn the general manager for the White Sox said that Rutherford was the important player for them in this deal and that he was in talks with the Yankees for quite a while.

I know people in the Yankees organization who were sorry they let an arm like Kahnle's get away in the first place.

And while Frazier is in a walk year, leaving NY with questions at the corners in 2018 and beyond, the Yankees' bullpen should be in good shape for years to come since Robertson is under contract through 2018 at a rate of $13 million, while Kahnle will be arbitration eligible through 2020. Frazier pinch-hit for Ronald Torreyes in the seventh - and got hit by a pitch in the hand in the ninth - and Tommy Kahnle pitched a scoreless eighth, striking out two. He has a ceiling as a mid rotation starter. But I'm more than willing to do whatever it is that they feel is better for the team.

The return the White Sox received from the Bronx included outfielder Blake Rutherford, the No. 3 prospect in the Yankees system, left-hander Ian Clarkin and outfielder Tito Polo. The Yankees have been looking for a solution at first base all season and have found it in Frazier, who can play third or first. USATSI How excited should White Sox fans be about Rutherford and Clarkin?

The realization that the All Star game was over seems to have gotten GMs off their couches and it's been a big week on the baseball trade market. Clippard has struggled with the Yankees this season, with a walk rate of 4.71 per nine and a HR/FB percentage of 14.6. And though he is a free agent after this season, Frazier, a New Jersey native who played on the Toms River East team that won the 1998 Little League World Series, would be a strong candidate to re-sign with the Yankees. He is 6-5 after giving up six runs and seven hits in six innings.

The New York Yankees needed a third baseman, and they needed more bullpen depth. They didn't get much from Chris Carter and because of injuries, didn't get much from Bird and Tyler Austin.

"It's kind of surreal here right now because it all happened at once and you hear the rumors, it could have been a different team, here and there", Frazier said. But to get a controllable pitcher like Kahnle who appears to just be turning into a bullpen monster, the Yankees had to give up more than a marginal prospect.
