The Yankees have completed a deal to acquire Cincinnati Reds’ closer, Aroldis Chapman a 4-time All Star. In exchange for 4 minor leaguers; Rookie Davis, Jagielo, Caleb Cotham, and Tony Renda. The Reds who earlier had a trade in place with the Dodgers fell through after Chapman’s domestic violence news came to light and the Dodgers later backed out. The Reds who are desperately trying to rebuild have been dangling Chapman, and have finally found a deal with the Yankees. Joel Sherman reported “Initial read I am getting is #Yankees plan to keep Miller, Betances and Chapman to form powerhouse end game” therefore the Yankees will look to form one of the most dynamic 7-8-9 trios that will help blemish their shaky starting rotation. The Yankees will have the 1,2,3 leaders who ranked among relievers in K’s/9 IP, with Chapman who recorded a 15.74 K/9, Miller a 14.59 K/9 and Betances a 14.04 K/9. The Yankees bullpen who was as good as any last year, now gets much scarier with the three-headed monster to close out games.
Cashman has done a great job this offseason for the Yankees, getting them younger and better without giving up too much. The Yankees have also restrained from spending big in free agency like last year and will be ridding themselves of hefty contracts after the 2016 season. As with the Starlin Castro trade, the Aaron Hicks trade and now the most recent with Chapman. Cashman has not given up much, yet this team looks significantly stronger than last years team that made the postseason. Hats off to you Cashman on pulling this trade, it has a lot of risk, but the reward could be worth it at the end.
