The Yankees added some speed on Wednesday by acquiring outfielder Terrance Gore from the Royals in exchange for cash considerations.
Gore, a 28-year-old outfielder, has spent parts of six seasons in the majors, primarilly with the Royals aside from a one-year stop in Chicago with the Cubs.
Throughout his career, Gore has been used primarily as a pinch runner, swiping 40 bases in 49 regular season attempts. He also appeared on the Royals' 2015 postseason roster, stealing a base in his only attempt in the ALDS.
Prior to this season, Gore had recorded just one career hit, grounding a single up the middle in 2018. He's seen more playing time this year with Kansas City, posting a .275 batting average with 13 steals in 18 attempts, before being designated for assignment on July 12th.
Gore is not currently on the Yankees' 40-man roster. He will report to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
