Murray | D-backs acquire Steven Souza in 3-way deal

Murray | D-backs acquire Steven Souza in 3-way deal

Last season, he slashed.239/.351/.459 with 30 home runs and 78 RBI for the Rays. Arizona also gets Widener who will give them some more minor league pitching depth after giving up Banda, who was their fourth-ranked prospect.

Finally, the Yankees have added Drury to an infield that previously had a couple spots up for grabs at the start of spring training.

Drury is entering his fourth big-league season.

Solak, 23, was the Yankees' second-round draft pick in 2016 and was rated by as the eighth-best prospect in their farm system.

Drury, 25, appealed to the Yankees on several fronts: He has displayed decent pop - with 31 home runs and a.767 on-base-plus-slugging percentage in a little over two seasons with the Diamondbacks - and he came cheaply. Chase Headley was sent to San Diego in a cost-cutting swap, and fellow third baseman Todd Frazier signed with the crosstown Mets as a free agent.

After losing J.D. Martinez to the Boston Red Sox, Arizona signed speedster Jarrod Dyson.

Drury hits for a higher average and brings decent power to NY along with plenty of positional versatility.

A big problem for Souza is balancing his power as a 30-home run hitter in 2017 with strikeouts.

The Yankees designated outfielder Jabari Blash for assignment to make room for Drury on their 40-man roster. Chris Owings or Ketel Marte could shift to second from shortstop, where Nick Ahmed also is back from injury. He also struggled with the Diamondbacks Triple-A affiliate Reno Aces going 8-7 with a 5.39 ERA. As part of the deal, Brandon Drury will head to the Bronx and one of the D-Backs' top prospects, left-hander Anthony Banda, will pack his bags and head to Port Charlotte, Florida, to join the Rays. The 23-year-old right-hander finished the 2017 season in High-A ball. Last season he split time between the High-A Tampa Yankees and the Double-A Trenton Thunder. He threw the final five innings of a no-hitter against Binghamton on September 8.
