Marlins acquired OF Austin Wates from the Astros in the Jarred Cosart deal.
A 2010 third-round pick, Wates sports a .303/.381/.415 batting line over five minor league seasons. He doesn't have any power but can run and play all three outfield spots. Wates has hit .299/.396/.381 at Triple-A this year.
Yankees acquired 3B Martin Prado from the Diamondbacks for C Peter O’Brien and either a player to be named later or cash.
New York buys low on a formerly rock-solid veteran batting just .270/.317/.370 with five homers this season. Over a nine-year career, spent between the Braves and Snakes, Prado is a career .290 hitter with a .340 OBP. Prado can play all over the place -- with first base, second base, third base, shortstop, leftfield and rightfield on his resume -- but he's likely to get most of his at-bats in the outfield with a Yankees team that has Chase Headley at third and Stephen Drew at second. Because of that, this trade is bad news for Ichiro Suzuki's fantasy value. What was left of it, anyway.
Marlins acquired INF/OF Enrique Hernandez from the Astros in the Jarred Cosart deal.
Hernandez, 22, sported a nice .284/.348/.420 batting line over 24 games for the Astros and will give the Marlins another option at second base and in the outfield. He profiles as a super utility player.
Marlins acquired RHP Jarred Cosart, INF/OF Enrique Hernandez and OF Austin Wates from the Astros in exchange for OF Jake Marisnick, 3B Colin Moran, RHP Frances Martes and a 2015 compensation pick.
Cosart has posted a 3.57 ERA over his first 30 major league starts and is under control for a few more years, but his 4.13 FIP and 1.42 WHIP suggests that a regression is coming. He will at least get to pitch in a very pitcher-friendly park but isn't much of a fantasy option with his low strikeout rate.
