Chicago White Sox Trade Phase all but completed

20 July, 2017, 00:33 | Author: Lula Armstrong

The headliner of the deal was Frazier, who only spent less than two years in Chicago after being shipped from Cincinnati following the 2015 season.

Frazier, 31, will likely take over as the Yankees' everyday first baseman with Greg Bird now on the disabled list and expected to miss a substantial amount of time (more on that here).

Frazier, after winning the Little League World Series with Toms River, was invited to stand on the field with the New York Yankees and was paired on the field next to legendary Captain Derek Jeter. If brought across the finish line, which as of late Tuesday seemed the way to bet even as sources stressed a deal was not done, the trade would land the Yankees bullpen pieces David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle and third baseman Todd Frazier, who can also play first base.

The White Sox did well in this trade, landing talented prospects to add to their already loaded minor league system.

In exchange, he gave the White Sox three prospects in a crowded system and struggling middle reliever Tyler Clippard.

Even though Frazier is a third baseman by trade, he has played some first base and likely will land there once he goes to NY.

A first-round pick of the Yankees in 2016, Rutherford is considered one of the top prospects in the organization. Boston's starting third baseman, Deven Marrero, has batted just.218 this year, while its bullpen is populated mostly by overachievers who look due for regression in the second half. He is hitting.207 with 16 home runs and 44 RBI. The White Sox now have ten top 100 prospects. He has an earned-run average of 2.70 and has struck out 47 batters in 33.1 innings.

Robertson, 32, is in the third year of a four year contract that pays him $12 million this season and $13 million next. Rutherford is hitting.281 with a.733 OPS in 71 games in Charleston. Clarkin, a 22-year-old pitcher, posted a 2.62 ERA at high-A Tampa, while Polo, a 22-year-old outfielder, was batting.382 at Class AA Trenton. That said, the Yankees are not in a position to win the World Series this year, and shipping away prospects for a six-month rental is a awful idea for the future of their organization.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox meet Wednesday in Major League Baseball action at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Rutherford is ranked the No. 30 overall prospect in baseball per MLB.com. Kahnle, the smallest name on his way to NY, is also in the midst of a great season, with a 2.50 ERA and 60 strikeouts in 37 games.
