2017 Trade Deadline Tracker

Notes: GREAT deal here for the Yankees. They move three very good prospects, but none of which are their top prospects. Billy Beane, once again, has me unimpressed by the return in a deal where he has now moved on from arguably his most valuable asset in Gray. If the Yankees were able to get Gleyber Torres and Clint Frazier for Miller and Chapman last year, then Beane should have been able to get at least  one of those guys for a cost-controlled pitcher like Gray.

Notes: Once again, I approve of this deal by the Red Sox. They give up three relief pitching prospects in exchange for one of the best relievers on the market in Addison Reed. So far so good for the team at the deadline. One more bullpen piece (preferably a lefty) would be ideal.

Notes: I am pleased with the Red Soxs’ acquisition of Nunez. While he doesn’t provide the power that the team sorely lacks, he does provide versatility, speed and the lowest K-rate in the MLB at 9.1%. He will have to be used the right way (which is no guarantee given who the team’s manager is), but the low-cost addition will hopefully take pressure off of the third base situation and allow management to focus on improving the bullpen (where I believe they are two pieces away, not just one).
