There's this odd element of uncertainty. Either it's some knee-jerk reaction to fans for not doing anything or enough, or a very strategic team building. I'm not sure what's going on. Do you?
The Yankees just traded Justin Wilson to the Detroit Tigers for 2 right handed pitchers.
According to FOX Sports Detroit. The deal is all but done. Chad Green and Luis Cessa are about to be New York Yankees.
Now look,what the Yankees need is a dominant starting pitcher, someone to help our sometimes shaky and sometimes injured starting rotation. Instead we gave away a reliever, a lefty that we could deinitely use in the pen, ESPECIALLY if our rotation is shaky. Know what I mean? And so... this comes as a surprise. Not sure what to make of this.Sources say the #Tigers will acquire left-handed reliever Justin Wilson for a pair of prospects.— Jennifer Hammond (@HammerFox2) December 9, 2015

Chad Green is a 24 year old minor leaguer and was 5-14 with a 3.93 ERA with Erie. Cessa was with 3 minor league teams in 2015 moving from Mets AA to Toledo (Tigers) AAA over the season.

Combined he was 8-10 with a 4.52 ERA for 2015. Hardly outstanding, but clearly the Yankees see something that I'm not.
Whatever the case... Wilson is gone. And there you have it.
