New York Yankees targeting three players from Chicago White Sox
Todd Frazier, 31, is not having the time of his life in his career. In 2016, he had a career low of .225 with the White Sox. Now that the deal has finalized, he will be playing in tandem with current Yankees third baseman Chase Headley. A two-time all star while playing with Cincinnati Reds, he had 98 RBIs and 40 homers. Yankees are considering a seven year deal with the baseman.
Involved in the deal is former Yankees pitcher, David Robertson, 32, who joined White Sox in 2015 as a free agent. Robertson is back in his former team where he played from 2008 to 2014. In 402 games, he posted a 2.81 ERA with the Yankees.
2013 Eastern League All-Star Tommy Kahnle, 27, is another pitcher who is moving to Yankees this summer. Kahnle has appeared in 37 games for the Sox with 2.50 ERA. This is not the first time Yankees has tried to acquire Tommy. He was originally drafted by New York Yankees in 2010, but lost to Colorado Rockies.
With their arrival, Yankees bullpen will be significantly stronger. The White Sox, in return, will receive Yankees outfielder Blake Rutherford, left hand pitching prospect Ian Clarkin, right-hand reliever Tyler Clippard, and minor league outfielder Tito Polo.
