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.

White Sox @ Yankees 7/1/12


The Sox jump all over Phil Hughes in the first for two runs. The Yankees loaded the bases with no outs and could not score. 2-0 CHW after 1 inning. 

Eric Chavez hits a two run home run to tie the game in the 2nd!
2-2 Tie

Robinson Cano adds a two run home run to make it 4-2 Yanks 

Soriano gets the save after 8 IP from Phil Hughes.

Yankees win 4-2

Today is Old Timers Day which is always a good entertaining watch. Tune in to YES to see this years Old Timers game. With this today's game will start a little late, a 2:05 pm ET start, and will be televised on YES Network and TBS Sunday Afternoon Baseball.

This afternoon the Yankees will throw Phil Hughes out on the mound to face Chicago's Gavin Floyd. The Sox have won the first two games of the series before being shut out yesterday afternoon in the Bronx. The Yankees will look to split the series this afternoon with yet another great start for Phil Hughes (i hope).
