Yankees Acquire Frazier, Robertson, Kahnle From White Sox

Tzu-Wei Lin talks with a reporter prior to the first game of Boston's doubleheader Sunday against the Yankees. Lin is currently the only active player from Taiwan in the majors

When the Angels designated him for assignment again in December, Choi rejected the assignment in favor of free agency, which allowed him to sign a minor league deal with the Yankees. They haven't won a series in nearly six weeks, losing eight of their past 10 while tying two others. You could have picked a couple panhandlers off the streets of Washington D.C. and they would have helped the Nats bullpen. The Chicago White Sox shipped them, along with reliever Tommy Kahnle, to the Bronx in exchange for Tyler Clippard and three Yankees prospects, continuing the fire sale that began with the offseason trades of Chris Sale and Adam Eaton.

The White Sox will get outfielder Blake Rutherford, who was New York's 2016 first-round pick. Not to mention, Hawkins did say the incident happened when Kahnle was a rookie, so it's possible the 27-year-old has grown up since then.

Townsquare Media's Kevin Williams was out in front of the news last night, keeping NJ sports fans updated. According to MLB Trade Rumors he is owed approximately $2.5 million this season, so the inclusion of him in the trade, will offset about one quarter of the added salaries from Frazier and Robertson for New York.

Clippard's contract will help offset some money in the deals for Robertson and Frazier, who is a New Jersey native, and said it felt surreal to be returning home.

"I think all the tools are [in there]", Girardi said. Obviously, dealing Kahne was part of the price of getting rid of those other two.

The Yankees are helping themselves here not only by addition but by subtraction, as acquiring Frazier means taking away an option at third base for the division-rival Red Sox.

Swarzak, who has pitched to a 2.45 ERA with 48 strikeouts and 11 walks in 44 innings, knows he could be the next to go.

The bigger issue is the trade market though, and the Blue Jays may be forced to make an ultimate decision before they really want to.

Boston can't afford to send top prospects for a two-month rental (Frazier) and a reliever under control through 2018 (Robertson).

Newly acquired New York Yankees third baseman Todd Frazier is planning a trip into franchise lore as he intends to ask former Yankee Paul O'Neill if he can wear O'Neill's No. 21.

"And Todd Frazier - that guy hits a lot of home runs".

Kahnle and Robertson fill a need in the back of the bullpen for the Yankees.

The White Sox said goodbye to three important players for the present and hello to another key step of their organizational rebuild Tuesday evening.

Polo is a 22-year old hitting.365 in 59 plate appearances since being promoted to Double-A, slashing.283/.341/.429 in 59 games at High-A to start the year. "It's nice to have a couple of my buddies coming with me".
