David Robertson #30 and Todd Frazier #21 of the Chicago White Sox celebrate a win against the Detroit Tigers at U.S. Cellular Field on June 15, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois. The reliever is now on a 2-year, $12.25 million deal that is up at the end of this season. That makes two high-paid relievers on the books in 2018 (Chapman), plus another arbitration raise for Betances that will eat up some payroll with starting pitching needs to fill, too. With lefties batting only.138 with 27 strikeouts in 58 at-bats against him, I wonder if he can be the "lefty" specialist when needed. This year he has learned control.
This year Kahnle's WHIP is 0.972.

People talk a lot about the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry, but it hasn't truly been a rivalry in many years.
Seems like just a matter of time... That is also an issue, as the Yankees trade reminded us. In the Yankees' ideal world, with Chapman holding down the ninth inning and Robertson slotting into the eighth, that could leave Betances as an Andrew Miller-type, multi-inning weapon, with Kahnle and Green as late-inning wild cards. You don't get any hits, it's like what do I have to do to improve.
The Yankees say goodbye to Clippard, who pitched very well early in the season but struggled mightily for the last month. He's currently hitting.281/.342/.391 for the Charleston RiverDogs in A ball and NY has reportedly been considering whether they would be willing to move him for win-now assets as the trade deadline approaches. He can play first base and add a little pop to a lineup that really didn't need much. Kahnle, also a righty, was actually drafted by the Yankees in 2010. That's why Rutherford is in this deal. They were supposed to be in the middle of a youth movement, and a few years away from competing.

Rutherford is the most highly regarded of the three, the Yankees' first-round pick from just last season. They had to give up a good player to make this deal.
As of 11:01 p.m. EST, Joel Sherman has reported that a fourth player, a prospect, will be involved in the deal.
The GM has given Joe Girardi the tools to score runs, preserve leads and otherwise remain competitive with just about everyone except the Astros, who now the majors' best team after the Dodgers.
I hope that Clarkin is a good one.
Ian Clarkin, 22, was ranked as the Yankees No. 19 prospect according to MLB.com and was in Class A Tampa where he had a 2.62 ERA over 75 IP with 58 strikeouts. He was a first-round draft pick past year. It's a clear indication that a trade in the works. The Yankees are looking toward the future, but if they aren't seriously competing without Rutherford by 2019 then something went wrong. Maybe that finally caught up to him.
