The third front-line starter swirling through trade rumors has finally been traded. Ken Rosenthal reports that the deal is done sending Roy Oswalt to the Phillies for J.A. Happ and two minor leaguers.
Now that Oswalt, Dan Haren and Cliff Lee are off the market, the rotation options seem limited to second-tier guys like Ted Lilly. Unless the Yankees are extremely concerned about Andy Pettitte’s groin or Phil Hughes workload, I don’t see why that sort of addition would interest Brian Cashman, but what do I know? I guess anything makes sense at the right price.
