The Sonny Gray trade to Cincinnati is officially official, the Yankees announced on Monday. He signed, basically, a three-year extension and the trade went through. The final deal is Sonny Gray and LHP Reiver Sanmartin-whom I’ve never heard of-to Cincy for 2B Shed Long (Reds’ No. 7 prospect according to and a Competitive Balance Pick in the draft, which will be in between the first and second rounds. The Yankees pulled a fast one, though, immediately sending Long to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for 21-year-old center fielder Josh Stowers, who was the No. 10 prospect in Seattle’s system,...

All offseason, Brian Cashman has made it abundantly clear that he intended to move RHP Sonny Gray when he received a worthwhile offer. It’s taken longer than many expected, but it seems that Cashman has finally found a package he likes. The Yankees are now set to send Sonny Gray to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for Cincinnati’s No. 7 prospect 2B Shed Long and a competitive balance draft pick (CBP). The hold up right now is that the Reds are trying to sign Sonny Gray to an extension beyond 2019 so they get more than one year of control...

The New York Yankees have agreed to terms with RHP Adam Ottavino on a three-year contract worth $27 million, according to multiple sources. It sounds like there is growing momentum towards a Sonny Gray trade, so I imagine that will have something to do with the corresponding 40-man roster spot to make room for Ottavino. Ottavino makes an already highly-regarded Yankees bullpen into the consensus best bullpen in baseball, even after losing David Robertson to the Philadelphia Phillies. Brian Cashman had said his plan this offseason was to bring in two relievers, and in the last few weeks the Yanks...

The offseason is far from finished, but Spring Training is now one month away, and there is a more than zero percent chance that the New York Yankees have completed their major offseason transactions. The team you start the season with is never the team you end the season with, but it is about time we project the opening day lineup if the season were to hypothetically start tomorrow. With Didi Gregorius out and Manny Machado and Bryce Harper seemingly out of the picture, who would be on that Opening Day 25-man crew? This is a long blog, so I'm...

The Yankees made the JA Happ signing official on Monday, announcing that the organization has signed the 36-year-old southpaw to a 2 year deal with a vesting option for the third year in 2021. The full terms of the contract have not yet been announced, at the time of this writing, but we had heard when they agreed to the terms last week that it was 2 years, $34M ($17M per year) and it would be another $17 million if the contract vests. I’ll assume those remain the terms. The third year will likely vest as long as Happ maintains...
