Charleston RiverDogs lose All-Star Blake Rutherford in Yankees-White Sox trade

The New York Yankees just landed Todd Frazier in a trade with the Chicago White Sox, but the third baseman came with a player who might be a little problematic, depending on who you ask. At nearly 28 years old, Kahnle appears to be a late bloomer, but it's worth noting that he spent his first two Major League Baseball seasons pitching in Colorado, which pretty much speaks for itself.

Rutherford was traded to the White Sox on Tuesday as part of a multi-player deal. According to MLB Trade Rumors he is owed approximately $2.5 million this season, so the inclusion of him in the trade, will offset about one quarter of the added salaries from Frazier and Robertson for NY.

It was no different just as the clock struck midnight on early Wednesday morning as NY completed a deal with the Chicago White Sox, acquiring slugger Todd Frazier along with relievers David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle.

It is hoped that a breakthrough can be reached soon, with Democrats hoping to water down the language enough for them to be able to pass it.

With the addition of Rutherford, the White Sox now possess 10 of the Top 100 prospects in baseball according to MLB.com (all in the top 68), the most in the major leagues.

Clarkin is an interesting left-handed pitcher who joins the ranks of the Sox' impressive crop of minor league arms.

While so much focus had been put on how the third baseman would be a flawless fit for these Red Sox, in the end Frazier became just a sidenote in Tuesday night non-waiver trade deadline drama. Meanwhile, Frazier represents an offensive upgrade over the soft-hitting Chase Headley at third, freeing Headley to go to first and give an improvement over what the Yankees have been rolling out there as well.

Bruce Levine of 670 The Score in Chicago was first to report a deal was close, with multiple national reporters later saying the same. He has struck out 15.0 hitters per nine innings and has a 2.50 ERA in middle relief. Heading into his first career appearance against the Yankees, he has a 6.63 ERA over his past four starts. Kahnle, 27, also has a 2.50 ERA in 37 games this season out of the White Sox bullpen. He is batting.282 with a.342 on-base percentage, a.391 slugging percentage, two home runs and 30 RBIs in 71 games for low Class A Charleston.

Tito Polo, 22, was the mystery fourth piece in the deal. The 31-year-old will be a free agent after the season, so the Yankees are only getting a rental with him.

For the White Sox, they are absolutely loaded with prospects and have the best farm system in the game.
