Yankees Acquire Phillies RP Chad Qualls


Chad Qualls, a few days after being designated for assignment (DFA), has been traded to the New York Yankees for a player to be named later (PTBNL) or cash considerations. The Yankees basically stole the guy who is a right handed reliever and closer type with tons of major league experience. He was not exactly tearing up the National League, do not get me wrong, so do not expect him to be the savior.

For those who care here are his stats for this season from fangraphs. It will be interesting to see who, if it is a player, we give back to the Phillies for Qualls.

The Yankees have designated Mike Antonelli, who they claimed off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles, for assignment to make room for Qualls on the 40 man roster.

  1. Chad actually has very good numbers against right-handed batters (something like a wOBA against of .278), so he's more of a specialist than all-around reliever.

    1. So you're excited because we got a ROOGY?

    2. Who said I was excited? Just pointing out that while it's strange that the Yanks traded for him, Chad's not a total waste of a roster spot.

    3. I was kidding... I just was looking for an excuse to use the word ROOGY
