Another Yankee Trade

Yankee fans: here's a last look at shortstop Trey Sweeney.  The 2021 first round draft choice was part of the three player trade with the Dodgers that brings reliever Victor Gonzalez and infield prospect Jorbit Vivas to New York.

Now seeking to rebuild their pitching depth after dealing for Juan Soto and Alex Verdugo, the Yanks deemed Sweeney expendable.  While the Louisville native showed promising power in his three seasons with the organization -- he batted only .248 to go with his 36 career homers -- Brian Cashman has committed to Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza as his young middle infielders.  So Sweeney became a trade chip.

(My images of Trey Sweeney are from the Somerset/Binghamton AA games on July 15th and September 19th, 2023.)


Huh said…
Yup, I followed Sweeney‘s career pretty closely, he never really broke through as a major league prospect beyond possibly being a utility infielder, at best. He didn’t do one thing spectacularly well, but he wouldn’t embarrass you out there in the field and might be able to turn on a fastball every so often. Of course, he’ll probably turn into a superstar now.
