Yankees Acquire OF Hill from Tigers

Just moments after being selected by the Detroit Tigers in the minor league phase of the Rule 5 Draft Tyler Hill was traded to the New York Yankees.

Emily Waldon of The Athletic first reported the trade.

Hill, who was formerly with the Boston Red Sox before going to the Tigers in the draft spent five seasons in the minors hitting .275/.355/.369 in 351 career games.

The Yankees are getting a player with some pedigree, being ranked by Baseball America as the 15th best prospect in the Boston system in 2016.  MLB Pipeline had him as the 30th best prospect in the Red Sox system in 2016.
