Since the Deadline, Joey Gallo, Jordan Montgomery, and JP Sears Have All Performed Admirably for Their New Teams

The Yankees did not trade many big-league players at the trade deadline this year, instead relying on prospects to bring in proven commodities that will help the team down the stretch.

Those who have been traded have had success with their new teams.

Joey Gallo went yard for the first time in a Dodgers uniform late Wednesday, swatting a pinch-hit, 3-run HR to the opposite field in the 7thinning. That blast proved to be the game-winning hit for the Dodgers in their 8-5 win over the Twins.

Gallo has hit .267/.267/.533 with a double, a few opposite-field singles, 2 runs, and 8 strikeouts since being traded.

Los Angeles has a 6-0 record in Gallo’s six games. Meanwhile, the Yankees are 1-7 since the trade deadline, and they face the Red Sox in a weekend series.

Jordan Montgomery made his Cardinals debut against the Yankees on Saturday, pitching 5 scoreless innings. Montgomery was traded for injured outfielder Harrison Bader.

Montgomery will make his second start for the Cardinals in a big game against Brewers on Friday.

Finally, the Oakland Athletics promoted JP Sears, who was acquired in the Frankie Montas and Lou Trivino trade. That afternoon, the southpaw made his debut in green and gold, pitching 5 innings against the Angels while allowing 3 hits and 2 runs.

Before being traded, Sears made 7 appearances for the Yankees this season. Now, Sears may have a chance to stick with Oakland’s starting staff in the future, as the club is rebuilding and looking for young talent.

Later this month, the Yankees will face Athletics in Oakland. If Sears isn’t demoted then, he might get a chance to face his former team.

Many of the top prospects sent away by New York at the deadline. Ken Waldichuk, who was sent to Oakland with Sears, in his first appearance he allowed three runs in 3.1 innings.

Luis Medina has made two appearances for Oakland’s Double-A affiliate since the deadline. He has an 11.57 ERA in 7 innings pitched, allowing 9 ER.

Hayden Wesneski, the Cubs’ Triple-A affiliate’s starter, also had a forgettable debut, allowing 8 runs in 1.2 innings. Wesneski was traded to the Cubs for reliever Scott Effross.
