Neither player expected to have a long term impact on this team. The White Sox are in rebuild mode and are trading their team away while piling up the losses.

At first glance, the initial prize is Todd Frazier, right? That might mean they miss out on potential trades by keeping their trade chips until closer to the deadline, or it may mean the white flag gets waved a little prematurely.

NY will send outfield prospects Blake Rutherford and Tito Polo to Chicago. The answer - Todd Frazier.

Frazier, a New Jersey native, could possibly be used at first base by the Yankees, who have struggled to find a solution there in the wake of Greg Bird's ongoing health issues. Robertson was a favorite to be traded to the Nationals to help with their bullpen, with many rumors believing that the Nationals would part with their number one prospect in outfielder Victor Robles.

If the deal is completed, it would have the dual benefit, from the Yankees' perspective, of denying the Red Sox a coveted piece as Boston had been going hard to land Frazier.

Since coming over from the Reds, Frazier has shown off his power more than his average in Chicago. The Red Sox have sent some of their scouts to watch Frazier play. The Chicago White Sox shipped them, along with reliever Tommy Kahnle, to the Bronx in exchange for Tyler Clippard and three Yankees prospects, continuing the fire sale that began with the offseason trades of Chris Sale and Adam Eaton.

A blockbuster trade between the Yankees and the White Sox is now official. First of all, the Yankees are obviously playing things aggressively this year, so the Jays have to know they're dealing with at least three teams in their own division who plan on making the playoffs this year (Rays, Red Sox, and Yankees are all now in playoff position). Both are considered strong statements.

In fact a fanbase is finding more positivity about the White Sox even as the plummet into the standings.

For the White Sox, they are absolutely loaded with prospects and have the best farm system in the game.

According to, the New York Yankees have debated about whether or not they should trade Blake Rutherford, their third best prospect.

Clarkin is an interesting left-handed pitcher who joins the ranks of the Sox' impressive crop of minor league arms.

The Yankees have also been looking for bullpen help as they've suffered 18 blown saves to this point of the season after blowing 16 all of a year ago.
