The New York Yankees continue to add depth to their stump. With the sole objective of reaching Spring Training with the largest variety of pieces to move prior to the start of the 2018 season.
On Monday the Yankees PR department announced they had traded the Venezuelan Ronald Herrera to the Rangers for Colombian prospect Reiver Sanmartin.
The 21-year-old Colombian left-hander played in 2017 with the Hickory Crawdads of Single A in the Minors. He registered a 14-4 record with a 2.64 ERA in a total of 23 starts.
Herrera, who was added to the Rangers' roster, posted a 8-1 mark with a 1.91 ERA in 14 starts split between Double-A in Trenton and Rookie ball.
The right-hander also made an appearance with the Yankees in 2017, pitching 3.0 innings with a 6.00 ERA
They traded the Venezuelan due to the fact that they could still have lost him in the Rule 5 Draft this winter.
