    Too bad they had to throw in Bryan Mitchell. I thought he had David Phelp potential, at the worst.

      Yeah, but they get Jabari Blash. Yanks win the trade on name alone!

      It’s understandable; Mitchell is out of options, and it’s not likely he breaks camp in the Yankees bullpen. Might as well get something for him. I would say that Headley was the throw in, since it was a salary dump. 😀

      So, in the end, the Yankees traded Rafael De Paula, Yangervis Solarte and Bryan Mitchell for Jabari Blash.

      I don’t see Blash sticking around for long. He’s not going to break the ML team, and I don’t know where he fits in organizational plans, with Frazier, McKinney, Austin and others.

      Blash gets sold for cash?

      Rafeal De Paula had basically no value.
      Bryan Mitchell kept getting hurt and blowing chances. Maybe he becomes a viable starter for the Padres.
      Headley played OK for the Yanks for 3 1/2 years. Not what he was supposed to be, but he filled the position adequately, but roughly $68 million of marginal value for roughly $50 million paid, so he did OK.
