Yankees closing in on acquiring Todd Frazier, David Robertson

Boston Red Sox Sam Travis Deven Marrero

Even though Frazier is a third baseman by trade, he has played some first base and likely will land there once he goes to NY.

Cashman said Girardi can "deploy" Headley and Frazier however he sees fit. That said, the Yankees are not in a position to win the World Series this year, and shipping away prospects for a six-month rental is a awful idea for the future of their organization. After Greg Bird suffered an ankle injury in Spring Training and tried to play through it (unsuccessfully:.100/.250/.200 over 19 games) before hitting the DL.

Is Polo anything more than a fun name?

The loss dropped the Yankees to 48-45 and was their 22nd defeat in 32 games.

Oh, and it can't hurt the Yankees' outlook that the Red Sox need to look elsewhere for a third baseman now.

Adding a pair of bullpen arms helps cover for the DL stint of Michael Pineda, protects Aroldis Chapman and Dellin Betances from overuse, and gives them a potential 6-7-8-9 combo of arms that can shutdown anyone.

Kahnle, 27, was also a product of the Yankees farm system and is the most controllable piece in this trade. Kahnle is having a breakout season with a 2.50 ERA and 1.47 FIP while offering a high-90s fastball. Robertson's 12.66 is 16th among relievers this season. He will make $13 million next season. The big get, however, is Kahlne. Now, general manager Brian Cashman is seemingly willing to throw those years of planning and plotting away for a 31-year-old third baseman. He was an All-Star in 2011, a season in which he went 4-0 with a 1.08 ERA in 70 appearances.

If the Yankees' starters can get to the sixth inning with the lead, good luck.

Of course, the Yankees didn't get these players for nothing.

The reality is that Frazier would have meant more to the Red Sox than he will to the Yankees, who acquired the New Jersey native, along with relief pitchers David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle. Among the minor leaguers dealt to the White Sox, New York included their 2013 and 2016 first-round picks, the latter of which, Blake Rutherford, was it's No. 3 overall prospect (30th overall in baseball, according to MLB.com). There's pop in his bat and a change of scenery could wake him up.

The Yankees made two upgrades to their team following last night's win over the Twins.

The 30th ranked prospect in all of baseball by MLB.com, Rutherford adds to a growing White Sox farm system that's been stocked with talent since the team chose to go the rebuilding route.

Frazier wasn't going to fetch a huge haul and his departure opens up a spot for Yoan Moncada to play everyday.

"I think it's important to do what we can to make our team better", NY outfielder Brett Gardner said.

The White Sox have fully embraced their rebuilding effort after dealing Chris Sale and Adam Eaton last offseason.

European Union officials seek sense of urgency as Brexit bargaining begins
The prime minister may have to seek consensus from other parties in parliament and to offer concessions on relative policies. For now, the EU says May's offer to guarantee the rights of 3 million Europeans in Britain falls short.

The White Sox, meanwhile, add to their ridiculous stash of prospects. But then, there's also the fact that the Yankees' offense really is this good. It's been a decade since they finished within less than six games of each other in the standings. All three were considered fine prospects but were not front-line blue chip talents like Clint Frazier, Gleyber Torres or Justus Sheffield.
