Jabari Blash‘s time with the Yankees has come to an end. The outfielder, acquired in the Chase Headley and Bryan Mitchell trade to San Diego, has been traded to the Los Angeles Angels for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
The 28-year-old had been designated for assignment yesterday to make room on the 40-man roster for recently acquired infielder Brandon Drury.
Blash slashed .213/.333/.341 with five home runs and 16 RBIs in 61 games for the Padres last season. He figured to be the first cut amongst a plethora of talented outfielders on the Yankees. Primarily a corner outfielder, Blash also was in the mix to work out at first base for the Yankees. He played 103⅔ innings there with the Charros de Jalisco of the Mexican Pacific Winter League.
Now, No. 66 is available.
