Yankees Get Dustin Ackley for Ramon Flores & Jose Ramirez
The has been official for sometime now. Dustin Ackley from the Seattle Mariners for Ramon Flores and Jose Ramirez. Both Flores and Ramirez have been mid level prospects for the Yankees and have both had chances in the Bronx to prove their worth. Given the depth of the farms Outfield and Bullpen options the Organization felt it would be wise to send these 2 guys to the Pacific Northwest. Yankees get in return a super-utility guy that can play the OF and 2B. Not sure what he will bring in term of offense but Yankees get that roster/player flexibility that they have liked for the last few years. I was a fan of Ramon's got to watch him come through Tampa and beyond. As for Ramirez he didn't help throw a combined no hitter in a 7 inning game. In the MiLB double headers are 7 inning games. I hope these two guys enjoy the Pacific North West and have some success with Seattle just not against the Yankees.
