Yankees land Frankie Montas, improved all around

The New York Yankees have been sitting atop the baseball world all season, but they’ve been far more worried about their team than they’ve ever publicly revealed.

So what did they do?

They grabbed Oakland A’s ace Frankie Montas on Monday when they couldn’t get Cincinnati Reds ace Luis Castillo. They passed on Brewers All-Star closer Josh Hader, who went to San Diego, but turned around and acquired Oakland closer Lou Trivino in the Montas trade. They also acquired Cubs starter Scott Efross. They are out for the Juan Soto sweepstakes, but they acquired Andrew Benintendi from the Kansas City Royals last week.

The Brewers believe they can still win without Josh Hader

The Milwaukee Brewers informed teams in early July that four-time All-Star closer Josh Hader was available, believing they could still win the NL Central without him, but warned the asking price would be steep.

Well, they’ll soon find out if they’re right in their assessment, trading Hader to the San Diego Padres on Monday for Trevor Rogers, starter Dinelson Lamet, prospect Robert Gasser and outfielder Esteury Ruiz.

“Trading good players to good teams is tough, and that’s certainly the case with Josh,” Brewers president David Stearns said. “We also recognize that to give our organization the best chance of sustainable competitiveness, to avoid the protracted periods that so many organizations experience, we need to make decisions that are not easy.”

The 2022 Tigers didn’t have to be sellers. How it all went wrong.

There was a time, not too long ago, when the Detroit Tigers envisioned a very different approach to the 2022 trade deadline — at 6 p.m. Tuesday, less than two hours before they played the Twins in Minnesota.

On paper, the Tigers lined up to compete. But on the field, due to a myriad of injuries and poor performances, the Tigers have the third-worst record in the AL, and the offense – averaging 3.21 runs per game – is one of the worst in baseball history.

“I’m just trying to make sure our guys realize we got ourselves into this situation,” Hinch said. “We have to deal with the consequences of stress, anxiety, curiosity and the reality that if I was out there and I had a rival club, I’d have some pieces I’d want here too.”
