Yankees Trade Ivan Nova, Carlos Beltran

The 2016 August 1st trading deadline has come and gone and the New York Yankees have traded both Ivan Nova and Carlos Beltran before the deadline. This haul, which includes five players, are on top of what the team already added in the Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller trades from earlier last month.

Beltran was traded to the Texas Rangers for three prospects including Dillon Tate who was the fourth overall pick in the 2015 MLB First Year Players Draft. Nova was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates for two prospects that were marked as players to be named later.

Here is the write up on the three prospects New York is getting back in the Beltran deal via Lohud:

RHP Dillon Tate -- Fourth overall draft pick in 2015. He missed time this season with a hamstring strain, which might help explain his disappointing 5.12 ERA in Low-A. The upside is significant, but the current results surely made him available. MLB Pipeline has alreadypegged Tate as the 11th-best prospect in the Yankees' suddenly loaded system. He lands in their ranking right behind James Kaprielian and ahead of Wilkerman Garcia.
RHP Erik Swanson -- Eighth-round pick in 2014. Missed the second half of last season with a strained forearm flexor. Moved from the bullpen to the rotation this year and has a 3.43 ERA as a 22-year-old in Low-A.
RHP Nick Green -- Seventh-round pick in 2014. The Yankees drafted him out of high school back in 2013, but he went to a community college and improved his draft stock. Turned 21 in March but has yet to pitch above short-season ball. Has a 4.98 ERA but 11.5 K/9 this season.
