The Yankees made another deal today, dealing Justin Wilson to the Tigers for two minor league right-handed pitchers. The Yanks must have faith that James Pazos, Tyler Webb or Jacob Lindgren can fill Wilson’s shoes, or maybe another deal is brewing, because with Warren and Wilson gone, the bullpen can now need some reinforcements.
Wilson was 5-0, 3.10 for the Yanks in 2015. In return for him, the Yanks get two prospects from the Tigers. Both are righty pitchers.
Luis Cessa is 23, and went 8-10, 4.52 between AA and AAA last year. He excelled at AA, and ran into trouble at AAA.
Chad Green, 24, went 5-14, 3.93 at the Tigers’ AA team last year.
They provide minor league depth. Losing Wilson hurts. The Yanks must think the trio I listed above are ready, or another deal is brewing.
Having traded Warren and Wilson in consecutive days, something tells me another deal is brewing.
