According to reports, the Yankees are set to obtain right-handed pitcher Jameson Taillon from the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Pirates will receive Miguel Yajure, Roansy Contreras, Maikol Escotto and Canaan Smith from the Yankees.
Taillon, who has not pitched since 2019, was considered one of the best pitchers in the 2010 draft class.
He is the latest Pirates player to be moved. The Pirates also recently traded Joe Musgrove and Josh Bell.
Miguel Yajure was ranked number 15 in the Yankee’s farm system and pitched three innings during a major league game in 2020.
Maikol Escotto hit .315 with eight home runs in 2019 for the Yankees’ Dominican Summer League team.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are continuing to rebuild their farm system with the addition of these new players
