Yankees trade OF Jabari Blash to Angels for PTBNL or cash

 

Jabari Blash, who was designated for assignment following the acquisition of Brandon Drury yesterday, has been traded to the Angels. The Yankees will receive a player to be named later or cash considerations for the outfielder.

The 28-year-old came over from San Diego in the Chase Headley trade back in December. With a backlog of outfielders in the Bronx, it was unlikely Blash would have seen any time with the Big League club, so Brian Cashman flipped him.

In a career-high 195 Major League plate appearances last season, Blash hit .213/.333/.341 with five homers and 16 RBI but whiffed 66 times (33.8%). His Minor League numbers are a bit better, slashing .258/.381/.571 with 65 homers in 235 Triple-A games.
