Yankees Acquire Kyle Haynes For Chris Stewart

The New York Yankees have acquired prospect Kyle Haynes from the Pittsburgh Pirates to complete the Chris Stewart trade. I thought we would simply get some cash so getting an actual player is quite the surprise for me. Haynes is a right handed pitcher that pitched to a 2.38 ERA last season in A Ball. Haynes misses a lot of bats, as showcased by his 9.2 K/9 ratio and his 3.9 BB/9 ratio, and got a total of 83.1 innings pitched last season. Haynes is 22 years old and started his career as a reliever but switched to a starting pitcher the final eight starts of the season and posted a 1.93 ERA with 39 strike outs and 18 walks as a starter. Haynes did not crack the Pirates Top 30 prospects list or any top lists but his switch to a starting pitcher may make him worth something before it is all said and done. Welcome to the family Kyle.
