The Yankees have announced the completion of last night’s trade, and Joey Gallo is officially a New York Yankee.
The New York Yankees today announced that they have acquired INF/OF Joey Gallo, LHP Joely Rodriguez and cash considerations from the Texas Rangers in exchange for minor league right-handed pitcher Glenn Otto and infielders Ezequiel Duran, Trevor Hauver and Josh Smith.
With Texas covering the salaries of Gallo and Rodriguez, the Yankees might not be done adding talent before Friday’s trade deadline. The Yankees also kept their higher-level prospects who could be used in an additional deal. Meanwhile, Gallo will likely slot in near the top of the lineup when he joins the Yankees in their upcoming series in Miami.
