The Yankees announced several moves yesterday. The first move was to send Sonny Gray and Reiver Sanmartin to Cincinnati for 2B Shed Long and a 2019 Competitive Balance Round A pick.
Gray also signed an extension with the Reds for three years, $30.5 million that covers 2020-22 with a club option for 2023 at $12 million.
The Yankees then announced they traded Long to Seattle for OF Josh Stowers. In 58 games, Stowers batted .260/.380/.410 with 15 doubles, five homers, 28 RBIs and 20 stolen bases, while being named a Northwest League Midseason All-Star. Unlike Long, he does not have to be carried on the Yankees' 40-man roster.
It was also announced the Yankees signed right haded pitcher Danny Farquhar to a minor league deal. Farquhar collapsed in the White Sox dugout April 20 and it was discovered he had sustained a brain hemorrhage.
Farquhar’s best season was in 2014, when he recorded a 2.66 ERA in 66 games for the Mariners. For his career, he has a 3.93 ERA in 253 games.
