MLB.com published minutes ago “Today Major League Baseball’s Yanks reach deal to acquire Stanton. Castro, 2 prospects would head to Miami for reigning NL MVP; NY gets $30M”
Bryan Hoch of MLB.com wrote “As they prepared to stand side by side at the T-Mobile Home Run Derby this past July, getting their swings ready to mash pitches toward oblivion at Miami’s Marlins Park, Giancarlo Stanton remarked that Aaron Judge seemed to be like “the twin you’ve never met: everyone’s comparing us to each other.”
The trade report by Hoch also mentioned “A source told Morosi that Stanton is expected to formally approve the trade. And a source told MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand that second baseman Starlin Castro and two prospects will head to the Marlins from the Yankees. New York will be responsible for all but $30 million of the $295 million remaining on Stanton’s contract.
Furthermore, MLB Network Insider Joel Sherman reported on Saturday afternoon that the prospects involved in the deal are right-hander Jorge Guzman and shortstop Jose Devers. The aforementioned is the 18-year-old cousin of Red Sox phenom Rafael Devers. Guzman is ranked as the No. 9 prospect in New York’s system, according to MLBPipeline.com; Devers is unranked. The 27-year-old Castro, who was an AL All-Star this past season, has two years and approximately $23.7 million remaining on his contract.”
