Yankees acquired SS Gleyber Torres, RHP Adam Warren, OF Billy McKinney, and OF Rashad Crawford from the Cubs in exchange for LHP Aroldis Chapman.

Torres is the centerpiece of this deal for the Yankees, who could be launching into a kind of firesale as they attempt a rolling rebuild. Torres, 19, has batted .275/.359/.433 with nine home runs, 47 RBI, 19 stolen bases, and 62 runs scored over 94 games this season in High-A ball while playing excellent defense at the shortstop position. Baseball America, MLB.com, and Baseball Prospectus all ranked him a top-50 prospect leading into 2016. It's a great get for New York.

Yankees acquired RHP Adam Warren, SS Gleyber Torres, OF Billy McKinney, and OF Rashad Crawford from the Cubs in exchange for LHP Aroldis Chapman.

Warren is returning to the Bronx after a mostly disappointing half-year stay on the north side of Chicago. The 28-year-old right-hander holds a 5.91 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 27/19 K/BB ratio in 35 innings (one start, 28 relief appearances) this season. He could move into the starting rotation with the Yankees if trades this week open up a vacancy. Initially he will probably work in mid-relief.

Yankees acquired OF Billy McKinney, SS Gleyber Torres, RHP Adam Warren, and OF Rashad Crawford from the Cubs in exchange for LHP Aroldis Chapman.

McKinney has struggled this season at Double-A Tennessee, batting just .252/.355/.322 with one home run in 88 games, but he was considered a top-100 prospect leading into the 2016 campaign and he's relatively young for the Double-A level at age 21. Chicago acquired McKinney from Oakland two years ago as part of the Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel trade. He'll try to get back on the radar in the Yankees' system.

Yankees acquired OF Rashad Crawford, SS Gleyber Torres, RHP Adam Warren, and OF Billy McKinney from the Cubs in exchange for LHP Aroldis Chapman.

Crawford is more of a throw-in here compared to the other names involved. The former 11th-round draft pick was batting just .255/.327/.386 with three home runs in 83 games this season at High-A Myrtle Beach, though he had racked up 22 stolen bases in 28 attempts.
Jul 25 - 2:09 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports the Angels are listening on starting pitcher Hector Santiago.

And several clubs have already inquired, per Crasnick's sources. Santiago is sporting a career-worst 4.32 ERA in 110 1/3 innings this season, but the 28-year-old left-hander managed a sharp 3.55 ERA in 532 2/3 innings between 2011 and 2015. He is eligible for arbitration for the third and final time in 2017.
Jul 25 - 2:05 PM

Brewers recalled OF Keon Broxton from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Broxton will rejoin the Brew Crew ahead of Monday night's series opener against the Diamondbacks. The 26-year-old outfielder has batted just .125/.253/.188 in 75 plate appearances this season at the MLB level.
Jul 25 - 1:59 PM

Brewers placed 3B Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day disabled list with a right lower leg strain.

Middlebrooks suffered the injury on Sunday afternoon against the Cubs. He has batted just .111 (3-for-27) since his promotion to the major league level on July 3.
Jul 25 - 1:57 PM

Phillies prospect Roman Quinn played five innings of center field Monday in the Gulf Coast League.

It was the first minor league rehab game for Quinn, who landed on the disabled list at Double-A Reading in mid-June with a left oblique strain. The 23-year-old top-100 prospect was batting .288/.361/.420 with three home runs and 25 stolen bases in 50 games this season at the Double-A level.
