Yankees trade rumors have the team completing a deal with the San Francisco Giants. These New York Yankees trade rumors indicate that the team has sent left-handed pitcher David Huff to the Giants in exchange for cash considerations. According to a report from Friday (Jan. 24), the team had to make a move after the team designated him for assignment during the offseason to clear a roster spot.
The Yankees acquired him last season off waivers when the Cleveland Indians decided to part ways with him. He appeared in 11 games, pitching 34 2/3 innings and finishing the season with a 4.67 ERA for them. He was still on the 40-man roster for the team heading toward the 2014 MLB season and the signing of Masahiro Tanaka forced them to make an immediate move. That's when the Giants came calling with an offer to exchange some cash in exchange for the pitcher.
This isn't one of those huge moves that will make the radar of many fans in baseball, but it could be a sly pick-up for the San Francisco Giants. He could be a good addition to the bullpen and serves as a pitcher that can make a spot start in the rotation if necessary. These New York Yankees trade rumors might be some of the last that come across this offseason as well, because the team looks like it is just about set to make a run at the postseason once again.
