Veteran infielder J.D. Davis to Yankees in Trade

Veteran infielder J.D. Davis (31) will move the team.

The Oakland Athletics announced on the 24th (Korea Standard Time) that they would trade Davis to the New York Yankees.

Earlier, Davis had been removed from the 40-man list when he was transferred from the Oakland club.

He was waived at the same time as he was excluded from the 40-man list, and a team that wanted to recruit him came out. 토토사이트 순위

The Yankees will give up infielder Jordan Grossans in exchange for Davis and cash to compensate his salary. To make room for Davis on the 40-man roster, right-hander Nick Birdy was transferred to the 60-day injured list.

Davis played 39 games as a first baseman and third baseman in Oakland this season, hitting a batting average of 0.236 on-base percentage of 0.304 slugging percentage of 0.366, four home runs and five RBIs.

He started spring camp with the San Francisco Giants, but was released when San Francisco recruited third baseman Matt Chapman.

At the time, the salary of $6.9 million was fixed through salary adjustment, but upon release, this contract was not fully guaranteed. Eventually, he signed a new contract with Oakland for $2.5 million for a year.

Although this season is disappointing, he is a proven hitter. During his eight seasons in the Major League, he recorded a batting average of 0.256 on-base percentage of 0.341 slugging percentage of 0.427, in 633 games.

He recorded a career-adjusted OPS +12, showing a batting ability above the league average.

The Yankees are running out of resources for the first base as first baseman Anthony Rizzo left due to injury. Currently, DJ LeMayu is in charge of first base and Oswaldo Cabrera is in charge of third base. Davis’ addition has allowed the weight of the corner infield to be added.
