The Yanks are just making moves and so far this season every single one of them has worked out perfectly. I wonder how it works out with Kendrys Morales. That's right... he's a Yankee now.

CBS Sports writes:

"The Yankees on Tuesday announced that they've acquired DH Kendrys Morales from the Athletics in exchange for cash considerations or a player to be named. The Yankees were in need of help at DH after Miguel Andujar was placed on the injured list with a shoulder injury. 

Andujar could be facing season-ending surgery, but even if isn't the Yankees will need a bat at DH.

Morales becomes the bat. Now 35, Morales this season has struggled after 34 games in Oakland with a slash line of .204/.310/.259. Last season, however, he out up an OPS+ of 113 and hit 21 home runs in 130 games for the Blue Jays."

There's no question Morales can help, he's got a big bat. But the fact of the matter is you just don't know what you're gonna get.

Will he turn into that Jack Clark or Ken Phelps or Lance Berkman move that just becomes a big name but is kind of stale... or will he flourish with an already talented, young team.  Let's hope he flourishes.

I've always admired that Morales just kept hanging on in the Majors.  His bat is a huge reason why.

Welcome and good luck Kendrys.
