Yankees trade two prospects to Mariners for OF Dustin Ackley
The Mariners have finally given up on left fielder Dustin Ackley, whom they have traded to the Yankees for outfield prospect Ramon Flores for right-handed reliever Jose Ramirez, per CBSSports Baseball Insider Jon Heyman
Ackley has been a disappointment since his arrival in the big leagues, but his left-handed power bat could produce considering the short right-field porch at Yankee Stadium. He owns a poor .215/.270/.306 slash line this season and has just two hits in his last 15 at-bats.
Ramirez, who has pitched in 11 games for the Yankees over the past two seaons, boasts a 2.90 ERA with 56 strikeouts in 49 innings this year at Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre.
Flores has compiled a .286/.377/.417 slash line for the same team in 2015.
