There’s still an hour left until the trade deadline and the Yankees have sort of made a move.
The Yankees announced they have unconditionally released Esmil Rogers from his contract in order for Rogers to pitch for the Hanwha Eagles in Korean Professional Baseball. The Hanwha Eagles have sent cash considerations to the Yankees in return.
After getting off to a great start in April, Rogers floundered, pitching to a 6.27 ERA and a 1.667 WHIP in 33 innings. The Yankees ultimately designated him for assignment and sent him to Triple-A before his release.
