Well, I sure misread this one. It’s being reported all over the place, but Yankee fans heard this announced a few minutes ago on the YES broadcast. Ubaldo Jimenez has been pulled from tonight’s start, as have Cleveland Indians prospects Drew Pomeranz and Alex White from their respective clubs. The complete deal is Drew Pomeranz, Alex White and Matt McBride, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post. The Indians are pretty much trading their top 2 guys, so they met somewhere in the middle on O’Dowd’s asking price, as expected. An equivalent deal for the Yanks would be Montero, Betances and a AAA pitcher. Cleveland better hope they’re right on Ubaldo, because if they’re not this is the type of deal that can set them back 3 years as an organization.
I’ll have some reaction tomorrow morning once I digest this a bit further, but my initial reaction is this is a departure from their traditional way of doing business. I’ll take them at their word that they are not as high on Jimenez as others, and view him as a #2. But the Yanks need a pitcher, they didn’t get one, and you have to like the chances of the Phillies, Red Sox or Giants better than the Yanks come October.
