Yankees Acquire IFA Money, Prospect in Trades

The New York Yankees have acquired international free agent bonus pool money and a prospect in two separate trades at the beginning of September call-up season.

In late trade on August 31, the Yankees traded first baseman Ryan McBroom to the Kansas City Royals for bonus pool money and a player to be named later or cash considerations.

McBroom, 27, was in the middle of a superb season with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders prior to the trade.  In 117 games he hit .315/.402/.574 with 29 doubles, 26 home runs, and 66 RBIs.  Prior to the trade he was ranked 99 out of the top 100 minor league prospects in the Yankees farm system.

On Monday, the Yankees traded right-handed pitcher J.P. Feyereisen to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for more bonus pool money and infielder Brenny Escanio. 

Escanio, 16, was signed by the Brewers as an international free agent on July 2, 2019.  The switch-hitting shortstop stands at 5-foot 9-inches tall and weighs 145 pounds. 

Feyereisen, 26, was in his third season in Triple-A.  In 40 games out of the bullpen, he owned a 2.49 ERA with 94 strikeouts over 61 1/3 innings of work.  Opponents were hitting just .173 against him.
