Rays send Steven Souza to Diamondbacks in three-way trade with Yankees

Rays send Steven Souza to Diamondbacks in three-way trade with Yankees

In a three-team trade, the Rays are sending Souza to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Rays receive minor league second baseman Nick Solak from the Yankees and left-handed pitcher Anthony Banda and two players to be named later from the Diamondbacks.

The D-backs clearly hope Souza, who turns 29 in April, can help replace the loss of Martinez, who hit a career-high 45 home runs in 2017.

Drury can play either second base or third base for a team that could start rookies at both spots this season. Last season, he batted.239/.351/.459 (121 OPS+) in 148 games for the Rays with 30 home runs and 16 stolen bases. He, Dickerson, and Longoria were among Tampa's most important offensive players last season.

In his first year of pro ball, Solak was second in the league with 77 hits for short season Class A Staten Island. He's also logged time in the outfield, playing both left and right field.

Drury's offensive numbers have been very home-heavy. Widener profiles more as a bullpen arm but had a strong season as a starter in advanced-A previous year.

"I think he will be a good fit for [Arizona]", Mooney said.

Drury hits for a higher average and brings decent power to NY along with plenty of positional versatility.

Lansing city officials prepare for potential flooding in Mid-Michigan area
Long range models show that seven day rainfall totals could climb to the five to ten inch range over NE TX, SE OK and SW AR. Tobin said right now, our area is at a fine break-over point of whether we're going to actually experience flooding.

NY isn't getting anything flashy with Drury at third, but he does provide a decent bat to place toward the bottom of the order that could flourish in the hitter-friendly ballpark that is Yankee Stadium. He was traded by the Brewers along with outfielder Mitch Haniger to the Diamondbacks at the 2014 trade deadline in exchange for outfielder Gerardo Parra.

The 25-year-old Drury also has experience in the corner outfield spots, but the Yankees are well stocked there.

MLB Pipeline ranked Solak as the eighth-best prospect in the Yankees' system and the fifth-best second base prospect in baseball, praising him for his ability to hit line drives as well as his speed.

Drury is under the Yankees' control for another four years, becoming arbitration-eligible in 2019.

"We gave up two players we really like", Cashman said.

If he can do those things and continue to produce at the plate, the Yankees can catch lightning in a bottle with Drury and have another great young player to add to its core of young stars for the next few years.
