Around the Empire: Yankees news - 7/29/18

Chasen Shreve and Giovany Gallegos traded to Cardinals for Luke Voit; Luis Severino’s last four starts are concerning; Neil Walker thinks J.A. Happ will do well in NY; R.I.P. Tony Cloninger

MLB: New York Mets at New York Yankees
brushes dirt off of shreve
Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports | Mandy Bell: The Chasen Shreve era has come to an end in the Bronx. Last night, after the Yankees defeated the Royals in Game 2, the Yankees announced that they had traded Shreve and Giovanny Gallegos to the Cardinals for Luke Voit and international signing pool bonus money. Shreve saved the Yankees bacon against the Mets, after he bailed Chapman out of his 9th inning struggles. You can read more about the trade here. Shreve has been on the Yankees for four years. His last press conference in pinstripes was emotional.

It’s unclear Voit the Yankees have planned for Luke. However, here’s a look at what the Yankees have planned for the international spending C.R.E.A.M.

We shall see.

Newsday | David Lennon: Luis Severino has not had the best month. His last four starts have been very non-Severino like. What makes it a bit more concerning is that he’s faltered against some not-great teams. Sevy is unsure of what the issue is, but he is determined to fix it. That’s good. Here’s hoping he fixes it soon, as his next start will be against those vile Red Sox from Boston.

New York Post | Zach Braziller: J.A. Happ had a rough time actually getting to Yankee Stadium yesterday, due to travel issues and such. Who among us. Neil Walker is Happ-y that the Yankees acquired him. Walker and Happ were teammates on the 2015 Pirates and he believes Happ will fit well in the Yankees clubhouse and in the New York environment. We’ll see how well he does today. | Daniel Kramer: Some sad news in the baseball world, as long-time player/coach Tony Cloninger passed away. Cloninger is the only pitcher in MLB history to hit two Grand Slams in one game. That was as a member of the Braves. Yankee fans might remember him as the bullpen coach for the Yankees from 1992-2001. That was a pretty amazing time for the bullpen. Our best wishes to his family and friends during this time. R.I.P.
