Yankees Acquire J.A. Happ From Blue Jays

Posted July 31, 2018

Since the deal was announced there have been mixed reviews for what the Blue Jays got back in return and whether it was enough.

So, which Blue Jays could be traded next?

The deal was first confirmed as done by Jon Morosi of MLB Network and Fox Sports and Mark Feinsand of MLB.com. Most recently, he was traded from Seattle to Pittsburgh in 2015.

In his latest salvo, Trump tweeted late on Sunday that hostile threats from Iran could bring dire consequences. Iran has rejected talks with the USA , and Rouhani has accused the US of stoking an "economic war".

200 inning starting pitchers are an extremely valuable commodity around Major League Baseball, and Stroman's one of only nine starting pitchers who amassed 400 innings pitched from 2016-2017. "I'm excited to get over there and get in the lineup and finish the season up strong with the Blue Jays", Drury said. He now owns a 4.18 ERA (3.84 FIP) with strikeout (27.4%) and ground ball (44.6%) rates that will play in Yankee Stadium. His ERA has fluctuated month to month, and he has had a bad July, posting an 0-3 record with a 7.41 ERA through four starts. In 46 starts in September and October, Happ is 20-12 with 3.12 ERA. He's seemingly turned the corner on his 2018 season, but Stroman's value could be much higher this offseason. The trade came hours after the Jays shipped reliever Seunghwan Oh to Colorado for minor league infielder Chad Spanberger, outfielder Forrest Wall and a player to be named or cash.

The Yankees have acquired Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ. The 23 year-old has hit.230 with 13 homers, and 35 RBIs through 62 games between Single A, Double A, Triple A, and two games in the majors. He also hit.294/.403/.447 (144 wRC+) with five home runs in 55 games with Triple-A Scranton. However, that doesn't mean he can't be a useful piece on a playoff-bound team in a part-time capacity.

The Blue Jays are in an incredibly hard position with Osuna and so long as he's in Toronto, his status looms a black cloud over the team. The Yankees had Drury on their big league roster as a utility guy at various points the last few weeks, but he didn't play much. He'll be a free agent after the season after completing the three-year, $36M contract he got from the Jays before the 2016 season. "We felt when we returned him back to third, we could get him back in the comfort level he was and he could unlock some of the potential in the swing because there were some things we saw that we felt allowed for more in the tank in terms of production".

The New York Yankees offense has been incredibly effective all season long. And on Thursday, they scored arguably the best starter available, veteran lefty J.A. Happ.
