The Yankees have sent RHP Chance Adams to the Royals via trade, per MLB.com's Mark Feinsand. Kansas City is sending INF Cristian Perez in return.
Adams was the roster casualty for Gerrit Cole, being DFA'd on Wednesday after the blockbuster free agent signing became official.
Once the Yankees' top prospect in the organization, Adams couldn't make the most of his chances in the big leagues. He pitched in three relief appearances in 2018, where he let up six earned runs on eight hits including three homers for a 7.04 ERA. And last season he had a 8.53 ERA over 25.1 innings.
