Yankees - Acquired Betemit
New York Yankees - Acquired IF Wilson Betemit from the Los Angeles Dodgers for P Scott Proctor.
Well, the Dodgers at least did get a decent reliever for Betemit. Betemit’s fielding has been kind of ugly this year, but he’s not usually that bad and he’s only 25 and worth hanging on to. A legit 25, too, as we found out when the Braves got in lukewarm water for signing Betemit underage. The Dodgers may be dodging a bullet with Nomar actually playing like a baseball player rather than a Hedberg-worthy one-liner. It’s still bad planning long-term.
The Yankees have confidence that they can buy more useful middle relievers at some point, but solid young infielders don’t generally hit the free agent market until they’re pushing 30. Betemit provides a fallback position if A-Rod’s contract doesn’t go well for the Yanks and actual infield depth that isn’t Miguel Cairo. Especially since Cairo’s occasionally appeared at 1B in a bacchanale of bad design.
