The New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers completed a trade yesterday that was first reported by Ken Rosenthal on Sunday afternoon. The trade seen Yankees' 8th ranked prospect, Trey Sweeney, to the Dodgers in exchange for LHRP Victor Gonzalez and Dodgers' 10th ranked prospect 2B/3B Jorbit Vivas.

The Yankees are getting LHRP Victory Gonzalez who is a big groundball pitcher with a heavy sinker. Something that GM Brian Cashman is known for seeking. Gonzalez sported a 4.01 ERA last season and has all the potential to be a great piece out of the bullpen. One of his biggest concerns is health, as he has been known for being sidelined quite often. He is most remembered for his performance in Game 6 of the 2020 World Series.

Also heading to New York, is 2B/3B Jorbit Vivas. Vivas, 22, spent time in AA Tulsa and AAA Oklahoma City. Vivas slashed .269/.381/.407 with 13 home runs. Vivas found most of his success in AA where he slashed .280/.391/.436 with 12 home runs. With his versatility and age, the Yankees are getting more options for their farm system.

Heading to Los Angeles is SS prospect, Trey Sweeney. Sweeney was one of the biggest trade pieces for the Yankees, as they have a surplus of shortstop prospects and Sweeney became expandable. Sweeney, 23, slashed .252/.367/.411 with 13 home runs with AA Somerset. The Dodgers, seemingly the better fit, will have a chance to develop Sweeney as he is a former first round pick (2021).
