Yankees Acquire Alex Verdugo In Four-Player Trade

  • Headshot for Alex Verdugo

    The Boston Red Sox traded outfielder Alex Verdugo to the division-rival New York Yankees on Tuesday in exchange for three right-handed pitchers, the most notable being 23-year-old right-hander Richard Fitts. The 27-year-old Verdugo fulfills the Yankees' search for a left-handed bat. Verdugo finished 2023 as a Gold Glove finalist while slashing .264/.324/.421 with 13 home runs, 54 RBI, and five stolen bases in 602 plate appearances. General manager Brian Cashman has stated that he is searching for two outfielders, so the Yankees may not be done bolstering their outfield. Verdugo is a solid all-around baseball player but does not particularly stand out for fantasy purposes. Ultimately, his shift to Yankee Stadium may benefit his home-run numbers, but his overall value will be determined by the final state of the Yankees' lineup heading into 2024.
