Astros Land Gerrit Cole, What It Means For Yankees

Published

on

The Houston Astros have won the battle for Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Gerrit Cole as the two teams have agreed to a trade, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network.

The move improves a Houston rotation that is already featuring Dallas Keuchel and Justin Verlander.

Over the past several weeks Pittsburgh had been discussing a trade with the New York Yankees that would have sent Cole to the Bronx in return for one, or more, of the Yankees’ big name prospects such as Gleyber Torres, Clint Frazier and Miguel Adujar.

While the Yankees may view this as a potential “loss”, Yankee fans, who have been critical of the high price for Cole, may see this as a big win.

With the Astros improving their rotation, the Yankees will likely turn their attention to Yu Darvish.

The Washington Nationals have placed a number of players on revocable trade waivers, including superstar outfielder Bryce Harper and second baseman Daniel Murphy, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal.

The placement of Harper and Murphy on revocable trade waivers shouldn’t come as a shock, or any threat that either player will be moved, as most teams around baseball place a majority of their players on trade waivers at some point during the month of August.

If a team puts a claim in on any player on the waiver, then Washington can attempt to work out a trade with that team, or they can opt to pull any player off of waivers.

Published

The Arizona Diamondbacks are re-signing right handed pitcher Randall Delgado on a minor league contract, according to the Arizona Republic’s Nick Piecoro.

Delgado was designated for assignment back in July and he has missed a big chunk of the 2018 season while recovering from an oblique injury that initially placed him on the 60-day disabled list, preventing him from officially starting his season until July.

A dip in velocity was noticed when Delgado returned, but he has a history of solid bullpen work with the Dbacks.
