Report: Yankees have agreement to acquire J.A. Happ

It’s been no secret that the Yankees have been looking to acquire starting pitching depth prior to the July 31 trade deadline.

According to reports, it appears that the Yankees have accomplished that goal.

According to MLB Network’s Jon Morosi, the Yankees have an agreement in place to acquire J.A. Happ from the Toronto Blue Jays. The full terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.

Starting pitching has been a struggle spot for the Yankees. With the addition of Happ, the team acquires some additional depth to help them make a strong postseason run.

In 20 starts this season, the 35-year-old is 10-6 with a 4.18 ERA over 114 innings of work. Happ has prior postseason experience, which could definitely benefit the Yankees down the stretch.

According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, it appears that Brandon Drury will be included in the trade. As of now, it appears that it will be a “two-for-one” deal, with the Yankees sending an additional player, possibly Billy McKinney, to Toronto.

The Bronx Pinstripes team will continue to update as more news about the J.A. Happ trade comes along.
