There’s a “new boy” in the Yankees “community” that fans hope will be “in charge” of the Bronx Bombers “day and night” soon.

On Tuesday, just minutes before the trade deadline, the New York Yankees made a shocking trade. The Yankees acquired outfielder Harrison Budd and a player named later or cash consideration from the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for LHP Jordan Montgomery.

Many Yankees fans were shocked that the club traded a homegrown reliable starting pitcher for the injured Cardinals outfielder. Bud is on the injured list with plantar fasciitis and wears walking boots.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said the team is confident the fast midfielder, with his excellent defensive skills, will be available sometime next month and in the playoffs. Hader, 28, is also playing next season. He won the Golden Glove award last year.
