Yankees Trade for J.A. Happ

He is now expected to arrive in NY on Saturday and remains scheduled to start Sunday against the Royals. I was a decent player for a few years (in the big leagues) and to get sent down twice after having a little bit of success in the big leagues previously wasn't easy on me. Manager Aaron Boone said it hasn't been determined when Happ will make his Yankees debut.

And if Happ performs as he expected, like he did three years ago upon joining the Pirates, going 7-2 with a 1.85 ERA in 11 starts to help Pittsburgh reach the NL wild-card game, the Yankees will be thrilled. The Yankees weren't going to protect him or promote him so his loss really doesn't impact the organization.

Happ, with a 10-6 record and a 4.18 ERA, was widely considering the most valuable rental starter on the market ahead of the deadline, primarily because of his performances through the first three months of the season, when he had a 10-3 record and a 3.62 ERA. However, is the rest of the Yankees rotation strong enough to make a charge to catch the Red Sox with 61 games left on the schedule?

Happ has been one of Toronto's most reliable pitchers this season, recording a 4.18 ERA with 130 strikeouts in 114 innings pitched.

What do you think about the Happ trade? He is a seasoned veteran, and gives the Yankees stability in their rotation.

"I'm ready for whatever situation", Britton said.

Some people reckon this "zebra" is actually a donkey
When a visited went to the cage of the "lion" at the zoo in Louhe, a city in Henan, they heard a loud bark. A zoo in Cairo is allegedly showing its true stripes by passing off painted donkeys as zebras.

"I've heard good things", said Gibbons.

Drury, who turns 26 next month, was acquired by the Yankees from Arizona in February and began the season as their starting third baseman. He went on the disabled list after the team's eighth game because of blurred vision and migraines, and he lost his job to rookie Miguel Andujar. He hit.176 with one home run and seven RBIs in 18 games for the Yankees.

Wearing a T-shirt that read "We Play To Win", Drury shook hands with several clubhouse workers as he prepared to pack.

Drury, who is most comfortable at third but can play second and the corner outfield spots, was not in the lineup Friday when Toronto visited the Chicago White Sox. The Blue Jays get two young, controllable players in Drury and McKinney, and can continue to re-shape their roster to compete in the future.

The 23-year-old McKinney was selected by Oakland with the 24th overall pick in the 2013 amateur draft, was traded to the Chicago Cubs with Addison Russell and Dan Straily for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammell in July 2014, then dealt to the Yankees along with Gleyber Torres and Adam Warren for Aroldis Chapman in July 2016. He's played in two games for the Yankees and has hit 230/.294/.502 with 13 homers, eight doubles and five triples.
