Yankees acquire Brandon Drury in 3-team deal with D-backs, Rays

MLB trade news Yankees acquire Brandon Drury in 3-team deal with D-backs Rays

The Yankees will also be sending prospects Nick Solak and Taylor Widener to the Rays and Diamondbacks, respectively. Lefty reliever Anthony Banda will go to the Rays, Piecoro adds. Widener, a 12th-round pick in 2016 out of the University of SC, has registered a promising 2.68 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 188/57 K/BB ratio over his first 157 2/3 professional innings. The Yankees will benefit financially (looking at Hal) by starting the season with Torres and Andujar because even a three-week stint in Triple-A extends their free agency by a year.

The D-Backs did give up Banda, who has been the organization's top pitching prospect for a number of years but had yet to find his mark at the major league level and had nothing left to prove in the minors.

Drury he hit.267 wiht 13 home runs and 63 RBI in 135 games last season.

The Arizona Diamondbacks didn't take long to find their apparent replacement for J.D. Martinez, as they reportedly acquired hard-hitting right-fielder Steven Souza from the Tampa Bay Rays in a three-team trade Tuesday.

Drury played predominantly at second base last season, although he has seen action in dozens of games at third base and in the outfield, too, in his young career.

The Yankees designated outfielder Jabari Blash for assignment to make room for Drury on their 40-man roster.

Souza, 28, batted.239 with a career-high 30 home runs and 78 RBIs a year ago. He isn't eligible for arbitration until next year. He was 7-8 with a 3.39 ERA in 21 starts for Class A Tampa last season and advanced to Double-A Trenton, where he was 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in two relief appearances.

Widener, 23, went 7-8 with a 3.39 ERA in 27 starts for high Class A Tampa past year. He threw the final five innings of a no-hitter against Binghamton on September 8.
