Todd Frazier Traded to Yankees for Blake Rutherford and Others

Diamondbacks trade for Tigers' JD Martinez

Rutherford, along with former RiverDogs pitcher Ian Clarkin was dealt in exchange for another former RiverDogs pitcher, White Sox closer David Robertson, along with Todd Frazier and Tommy Kahnle. At nearly 28 years old, Kahnle appears to be a late bloomer, but it's worth noting that he spent his first two Major League Baseball seasons pitching in Colorado, which pretty much speaks for itself.

Late Tuesday night, according to various sources, the Bombers were working hard to complete a major deal with the White Sox that addressed significant needs.

Frazier will probably spend some time at first base with the Yankees since Greg Bird is expected to be sidelined for a minimum of six weeks after undergoing surgery to remove an excess bone growth from his right ankle.

As of now Todd Frazier has played his last game with the White Sox and he may be bound for the Yankees.

It was no different just as the clock struck midnight on early Wednesday morning as NY completed a deal with the Chicago White Sox, acquiring slugger Todd Frazier along with relievers David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle.

The White Sox held firm on demanding Rutherford, who was rated as the third-best prospect in the Yankees' system and a top-40 prospect in the game.




Even though Frazier is a third baseman by trade, he has played some first base and likely will land there once he goes to NY. Rutherford was the 18th overall pick in the 2016 draft and has shown off his impressive hit tool during his first two seasons within the Yankees' minor-league system.

By this time a year ago, Dombrowski had answered his need at third base (Aaron Hill), at the end of the bullpen (Brad Ziegler) and in the starting rotation (Drew Pomeranz).

And there's Kahnle, who has struck out 60 and walked 7 in 36 innings of relief this season. The rental is hitting just.207 this year, with 16 homers and 44 RBIs.

As of 11:01 p.m. EST, Joel Sherman has reported that a fourth player, a prospect, will be involved in the deal. The Birmingham, Alabama native signed a four-year, $46MM contract prior to the 2015 season, which means he is in the third season of the pact and is still owed $17.92MM.

Robertson was once the closer for the Yankees and will be paid $12 million this season and due $13 million for next season. Kahnle, like Robertson, began his career in the Yankees organization. Rutherford was ranked as the Yankees 3 best prospect by MLB.com, while Clarkin was ranked 19. They also announced top prospect Yoan Moncada would be called up for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.
