MIAMI — The New York Yankees have acquired Los Angeles Angels starter Andrew Heaney, adding a pitcher after making two big trades for sluggers.
The Yankees got the 30-year-old lefty and cash for minor league right-handers Janson Junk and Elvis Peguero.
New York began the day at 53-48, fourth in the AL wild-card race for two spots.
As Friday’s trade deadline approached, the Yankees got All-Star outfielder Joey Gallo from Texas and star first baseman Anthony Rizzo from the Chicago Cubs.
Heaney was 6-7 with a 5.27 ERA in 18 starts for the Angels this year. He is 30-36 with a 4.57 ERA in eight seasons with Miami and Los Angeles.
