Yankees, Marlins in trade

Joe Skipper  AP

We think we got some good prospects in return, and now it is up to us as an organization to help develop them.

NY made the Headley trade (San Diego will absorb all of the $13 million on Headley's contract) in order to clear more room under the luxury tax threshold ($197 million), giving them a better opportunity to pursue a top-end starting pitcher or third baseman on the open market.

A right fielder in Miami, Stanton said he won't mind playing left field or designated hitter with the Yankees.

The Yankees won 91 games in the regular season and came within one win of the World Series in October, losing the final two games of the American League Championship Series at Houston.

- Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski made one final call to Marlins president Michael Hill about Giancarlo Stanton last week.

Stanton said he'd waive the no-trade clause for the Yanks, Dodgers, Cubs and Astros.

In a conversation with CEO Jeter, Stanton expressed that the Marlins needed pitching to bolster a solid lineup and wanted to give it a half-season to see how it played out. Marlins ownership reportedly threatened that if he didn't accept a trade to either St. Louis or San Francisco, they wouldn't deal him.

Yes, the Yankees have a number of highly touted hitters that give them the potential for a unsafe lineup, but truth is they haven't done anything yet. even with the addition of National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton. However, he won't have to carry the offense in NY. The Yankees topped the majors in 2017 with 241 home runs. Opposing pitchers can't pitch around Judge and put him on base with Stanton up next.

The Yankees pulled it off, raiding their old captain's new team for a centerpiece ready for a change. General manager Brian Cashman referred to the Stanton acquisition as adding to the Yankees' "band of merry men".

As for Aaron Judge, the reigning AL Rookie of the Year does not need to repeat his 52-homer season. He's due $10 million in 2018 and $11 million in 2019 plus a $16 million club option for 2020 with a $1 million buyout. The Yankees made a 10-year, $265 million commitment to Stanton, whose departure Jeter engineered as Miami's chief executive.

"Great people, they were great meetings and a great organization and culture there, " Stanton said.

Devers, 18, batted.245 with 16 steals in 53 games for two teams in the low minors. Outfielders Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna and Castro possibly are on the trading block.
