Yankees, Not Red Sox, Acquire Frazier, Robertson, Kahnle From White Sox

For David Robertson, he gets to return to the team he started with. The team acquired outfielder Blake Rutherford, the No. 30 prospect in baseball according to MLB.com, left-handed pitcher Ian Clarkin, outfielder Tito Polo and right-hander Tyler Clippard from the New York Yankees in exchange for third baseman Todd Frazier and right-handers Tommy Kahnle and David Robertson.

Late Tuesday night Headley, though limited in his experience at first, said he would be willing to play there. The Red Sox will nearly certainly land a third baseman this month, to fill their biggest need, but it won't be Frazier. Chicago was reportedly in talks with the Boston Red Sox regarding both Frazier and Robertson, but despite the reports, nothing ever got serious.

We'll see whether Cashman accelerates his interest in the A's Sonny Grey, whom the Yankees have been monitoring for the last month.

The Yankees needed to address their bullpen struggles and corner infield issues in a trade.

Tropical Storm Don (AL05)
The storm is forecast to strengthen further (though the official track does not suggest intensification into a hurricane). Starting off with Tropical Storm Don , the latest advisory (5:00 am) has maximum winds sustained at 50 miles per hour .

As the New York Post's Joel Sherman noted, those acquisitions will be key since they can help shorten the game for a rotation that just lost Michael Pineda (Tommy John surgery) for the season.

Adding a lower level starting pitcher, however, is not out of the question.

Kahnle, 27, was also a product of the Yankees farm system and is the most controllable piece in this trade. Outfielder Blake Rutherford was their first-round pick past year, and the 36-ranked prospect in baseball according to Baseball America, while Ian Clarkin is a highly regarded (but injury-prone) left-handed pitcher and outfielder Tito Polo was more of a throw-in. Regardless, first base has been a serious problem for the Yanks this year and even upgrading to league average there makes them a much stronger team, and that's without the unspoken benefit of keeping Frazier away from the rival Red Sox. In Chicago, Rutherford has a clear path to the major leagues since the White Sox are in a total re-build.

The realization that the All Star game was over seems to have gotten GMs off their couches and it's been a big week on the baseball trade market.

They didn't take on any long-term, oppressive contracts (thus, of course, keeping themselves in the mix for the epic 2018 free agent class).

Frazier grew up rooting for the Yankees in nearby Toms River, N.J. There's pop in his bat and a change of scenery could wake him up. Frazier can play first and third base, which is more important to the Yankees now that first baseman Greg Bird might be out the rest of the season.

NY will send left-hander Jordan Montgomery (6-4, 3.78 ERA) to the mound on Wednesday seeking its first series win since beating the Orioles on June 11. But like we said, Todd Frazier isn't scared of the big stage and could end up thriving in the Bronx.
