Yankees trade for speedy outfielder Greg Allen in deal with Padres

The Yankees added some outfield depth by trading for outfielder Greg Allen, a source confirmed.

The speedy Allen, a switch-hitter, was designated for assignment by the Padres earlier in the week. The Yankees sent 27-year-old left-hander James Reeves to San Diego in the deal.

Reeves, a 10th-round pick by the Yankees in 2015, reached Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2018.

Allen, also 27, was DFA’d by the Padres to make room on their 40-man roster for Ha-Seong Kim, an infielder from South Korea signed by the Padres.

As was said of the immortal Willie Mays Hayes, Allen "might run like Mays but (he) hit(s) like sh!t"...

Given how good the Yankees' MLB/high minors scouting is, I fully expect Allen to turn into Kenny ######' Lofton.

Does anyone know what happened with Jacoby Ellsbury's contract? Were the Yankees able to just say "Nah, we don't feel like paying you, because, reasons"?

Are they actually thinking "baserunning + defense = 26th man" or is this just a glorified (not quite) NRI? Looks like he probably has an option left so AAA fodder could be the thinking.

I was wondering if this means the end of the Brett Gardner era.

Are they actually thinking "baserunning + defense = 26th man"


That's silly. Everyone knows the 26th man is always another relief pitcher.

Except for the 13-pitcher limit.

Pretty sure they just released him and bought out his option for 2021.

And the 25th, and the 24th, and the 23rd, and...
