Yankees and Orioles finalize deal to send Zach Britton to NY

The Evil Empire is getting a little more evil. "He has great ability and has had a lot of success, and from what I understand, he has a great work ethic and is a great teammate". That alone makes this a win-win.

Tate, 24, is the Yankees' No. 9 prospect, according to MLB Pipeline. The nonwaiver trade deadline is next Tuesday. And there's something else.

The trade would send right-hander Dillon Tate to the Orioles along with left-hander Josh Rogers and right-hander Cody Carroll, the person said Tuesday night, speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal would be subject to the teams approving medical records. The Brewers, Diamondbacks and Cubs, among other teams, also reportedly inquired about Britton. As the Astros and Red Sox show few signs of slowing their respective dashes to the playoffs, the Yankees will gladly take any opportunity to snatch a well-regarded player they also might have wanted.

"To add a guy of his caliber would be huge", Betances added. But six years later, Machado has been jettisoned to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for five minor leaguers, four of whom were assigned to Bowie last week. The next piece to go is their relief pitcher, Britton. If that's the case, he has a chance to make a meaningful impact for the Yankees down the stretch. A bulk of them came from 2014-2016 when he put up campaigns of 37, 36 and a league-leading 47 two years ago while posting a minuscule 1.38 ERA in the process.

"When you bring in somebody like him, it gives you the opportunity to rotate and divide the workload", Chapman said.

Regardless of his slow start and return from injury, there's no denying Britton improves the Yankees' bullpen.

The right-hander faced the Yankees on June 15 in NY when he allowed five runs on eight hits in 7 1/3 innings in a 5-0 loss.

"We decided with the Manny trade we were going to set off in a different direction so we could be competitive with these superteams in the American League East", Duquette said. "Thankfully, (Masahiro) Tanaka provided a complete game for us (Tuesday night), so our bullpen is well rested (Wednesday)".

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman often reiterates when talking to the media that his job is to always keep looking to upgrade the Yankees, using different words with different levels of timeliness to punctuate the "always".

As the game wore on, news filtered out that Britton was going to be traded. NY began the season with a $179 million payroll for purposes of the luxury tax, which left the team room to add salaries and remain under the $197 million threshold. Only the 2016 version of the eight-year veteran's sinker had a higher percentage of swing-and-misses than this year's 34.6 percent. "Big, strong kid with two really good pitches, a fastball with good velocity and he's got a good slider the lefties and the righties have trouble with". "It adds to a long list of guys in our bullpen that are nasty", said catcher Austin Romine, who has taken no pleasure in facing Britton in the past. To get fans into the seats it helps having young, exciting talent that can show fans what's in store for the future of the major league club.
