Diamondbacks Acquire Souza From Rays as Part of Three-Team Trade

Diamondbacks Acquire Souza From Rays as Part of Three-Team Trade

Banda will join former Moody player Michael Franco in the Rays organization. Minor league right-hander Taylor Widener moves from NY to Arizona.

He won't be able to do everything J.D. Martinez did for the Arizona Diamondbacks past year, but Steven Souza will be the main player tasked with replacing him.

Souza will fill J.D. Martinez officially signed with the Red Sox, the Diamondbacks found his replacement.

Souza, 29 in April, enjoyed his best season as a major leaguer batting.239/.351/.459 with 30 homers.

Widener was the Yankees No. 22 prospect, according to Baseball America.?

Declining issues outnumbered advancing ones on the NYSE by a 1.61-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 1.56-to-1 ratio favored decliners. ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude fell 47 cents to $61.32 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

This is a trade that can help all three teams achieve their goals. Drury is capable of playing both second base and third base, and it remains to be seen whether the Yankees prefer him at one spot over the other. The Yankees will also be sending prospects Nick Solak and Taylor Widener to the Rays and Diamondbacks, respectively.

The Yankees began spring training on Monday intent on giving the rookies Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar opportunities to win the starting jobs at second and third base, respectively. Drury made his MLB debut in 2015 and has blasted 31 homers and driven in 124 runs while slashing.271/.319/.448 in 289 career games in the big leagues.

Drury is entering his fourth big-league season. But they are also hedging their bets: They signed the veterans Danny Espinosa and Jace Peterson to minor-league contracts last month, largely as cover at second base for Torres.

To make room for Drury on the 40-man roster, the Yankees designated outfielder Jabari Blash for assignment. He also struggled with the Diamondbacks Triple-A affiliate Reno Aces going 8-7 with a 5.39 ERA.

Pollock, Tomas, and Dyson all spent significant amounts of time on the disabled list last season but in their best seasons, like Souza and Peralta, have been some of the best in the league. He threw the final five innings of a no-hitter against Binghamton on September 8.
