Yankees, Tigers make a minor trade

A minor trade goes down as everyone in baseball front offices recovers from, um, doing very little at the Winter Meetings: the Yankees acquired outfielder Tyler Hill from the Tigers for cash considerations.

The Tigers had picked Hill from the Red Sox in the minor league portion of yesterday’s Rule 5 Draft, meaning that he was a Tiger for less than 24 hours. I hope he cherished those memories.

Hill, who will turn 23 in March, hit .254/.348/.312 with one home run and 27 stolen bases in 124 games this past season for the Sox’ High-A team in Salem, Virginia. He was a 19th round pick for the Red Sox in 2014.
