Angels acquired OF Jabari Blash from the Yankees for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Blash was recently designated for assignment by the Yankees in order to make room for Brandon Drury, who was acquired from the Diamondbacks in a three-team trade on Tuesday. The 28-year-old outfielder has a career .200/.323/.336 batting line at the major league level, but his power from the right side could allow him to be a bench bat for the Angels in 2018.

Yankees designated OF Jabari Blash for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for infielder Brandon Drury, who was acquired from the Diamondbacks in a three-team swap on Tuesday. Blash was traded to the Yankees in December in a deal that sent Chase Headley and Bryan Mitchell to the Padres. The 28-year-old outfielder owns an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 career batting line in 279 plate appearances at the major league level, but he could draw interest on waivers.

Yankees acquired OF Jabari Blash from the Padres for 3B Chase Headley, RHP Bryan Mitchell, and cash considerations.

For the Yankees, this deal was all about shedding Headley's salary in order to provide more wiggle room under the luxury tax threshold. The 28-year-old Blash brings some interesting pop to the table, but he owns a .200/.323/.336 batting line over 99 games in the majors.

Jabari Blash went 2-for-2 with two walks and an RBI versus the Giants on Wednesday.

Blash is going to lose right field to Hunter Renfroe in a few days, but he should warrant the occasional start down the stretch. He's hit .280 with four homers and 12 walks in 89 plate appearances during his last two major league stints.

Padres recalled OF Jabari Blash from Triple-A El Paso.

He's taking the spot of slumping outfielder Hunter Renfroe, who was sent back to Triple-A. Blash has hit an underwhelming .224 with three homers in 76 at-bats over three big league stints this season. The 28-year-old is well off the fantasy radar.

Blash got off to a nice start in his most recent stint with the big club, he be ultimately faded. He's a .197/.328/.361 hitter at the major league level.

Jabari Blash went 1-for-3 with a two-run double in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Blash burned Ty Blach for a two-run double in the fourth inning. The two-bagger was his fourth of the season. He has played well since being recalled from Triple-A on July 14 and has done enough to continue drawing regular at-bats moving forward. Over the course of 24 games played this season, the 28-year-old outfielder is slashing .242/.377/.452 with three homers and 11 RBI.

Padres manager Andy Green on Thursday indicated that Jabari Blash has earned a right to remain in the lineup.

Blash is hitting .458/.517/.833 with two homers over seven games since his recall. "The Jabari I’m seeing right now is earning his right to be on the baseball field consistently," Green said. "I don’t mind watching guys compete for playing time. I’m actually excited by that prospect. With all the injuries we’ve had this year, that concept hasn’t really been able to be embraced at all." Blash has had a nice season at Triple-A El Paso with a .291/.407/.631 line and 18 homers. He's going to strike out a ton, but there might be enough power here for NL-only value. Jose Pirela and Carlos Asuaje figure to see their playing time cut the most as long as Blash is in there, and it's possible Hunter Renfroe could also see fewer starts.

Jabari Blash finished 3-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's road loss against the Rockies.

It wasn't all good for Blash, as he made his second error of the season on a line drive. The outfielder from the U.S. Virgin Islands has come alive in July, posting nine hits over 18 at-bats (.500) with two doubles, two homers and seven RBI while coming across to score five times.

Jabari Blash finished 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's game against the Giants.

Blash too Madison Bumgarner deep in the fourth inning for only his second homer of the season. The young outfielder has back-to-back games with extra-base hits while posting three RBI since his recall from Triple-A El Paso. The power potential is there for Blash, but he needs to develop a better eye at the plate if he intends to stick around for a while.

Jabari Blash, called up earlier in the day, went 2-for-4 with a double and a walk against the Giants on Friday.

He also had a nice at-bat with two outs and the go-ahead run on in the bottom of the ninth, but his opposite-field drive to right couldn't quite make it to the wall in Petco. It should still be enough to keep him in the lineup Saturday as Hunter Renfroe's replacement in right.

Padres recalled OF Jabari Blash from Triple-A El Paso.

Blash is taking Travis Jankowski's (foot) spot on the roster and should take his spot as the regular left fielder, too. He's managed just a .152/.287/.291 batting line in 94 plate appearances in the majors so far but does have big raw power.
