Giants Acquire Mike Tauchman In Trade With Yankees

Apr 28, 2021 7:46 AM

The San Francisco Giants have acquired Mike Tauchman from the New York Yankees for reliever Wandy Peralta and a player to be named later.

Tauchman, 30, a veteran of five major league seasons, had a breakout year for the Yankees in 2019 when he set career bests with a .277 average, 13 home runs and 47 RBIs.

With Clint Frazier and Brett Gardner splitting time in left field, there was little opportunity for Tauchman to find a spot in the Yankees' lineup.

Peralta, 29, is 2-1 with two saves and a 5.40 ERA in 8 1/3 innings over 10 appearances this season.

Max Scherzer Could Be 'Popular Name' On Trade Market

Apr 22, 2021 7:50 AM

Many are beginning to wonder if the Washington Nationals will look to deal Max Scherzer this summer if they aren't in contention in the National League East.

Scherzer, who is slated to become a free agent at the end of the season, has full no-trade rights as a 10-and-5 player.

"Max is a competitor," said a source close to Scherzer. "If he thinks he has a chance to win, I think he would be open to several scenarios."

"He doesn't strike me as a guy who likes sitting out of the playoffs," an American League executive added.

Scherzer is earning $35 million this season, so a team acquiring him in late-July would have to take on about $12 million of the contract.
