Yanks' Continue to Build on Deep Core: Trade Deadline Analysis
There you have it, Beltran to Texas for highly touted RHP Dillon Tate, and RHPs Erik Swanson and Nick Green.
The 22-year old Tate was drafted 4th overall last year, and played college ball at UC Santa Barbara. Check out the numbers and highlights, deadly stuff.
Scouts say he's very projectable, and being 22-years old, you have to believe we may see him next year, or perhaps at the start of 2018. Word on the street is that a lot of people in the Texas Rangers camp are very displeased they gave him up for 2 months of Carlos Beltran. Can't say I can blame them, but it just goes to show how impressive Cashman has been this trade deadline. Straight up robbing teams, and getting the most bang for his buck at every turn.
As for Swanson and Nick Green, stats are as follows:
News also has now just come in about Ivan Nova moving to the Pirates. More to follow.
So let's breakdown what the Yankees gave, and who they received in return.
LHP Andrew Miller
LHP Aroldis Chapman

Here are the other 4 with their complete rankings and ages:
Unbelievable job by Brian Cashman to completely unload and pickup a core group of 7 Baseball America's Top 100 Prospects. Highway robbery at its finest, and now the 2018 Yankees team is going to look just as imposing as it will be young, and World Series title number 28 is now officially on the horizon.
