The New York Yankees have reportedly strengthened their pitching heading into the home stretch of the season.
Per Bob Nightengale of the USA Today, the Yankees have acquired Athletics star pitcher Frankie Montas and closer Lou Trivino.
In return, the Yankees are giving up left-handers Ken Waldichuk and J.P. Sears, right-hander Luis Medina, and second baseman Cooper Bowman, per ESPN's Jeff Passan.
Montas is 4-9 in 19 starts this season but only has a 3.18 ERA. He's pitched well but hasn't gotten any help from the rest of his teammates.
He last pitched on Jul. 26 and gave up seven hits, and three runs (two earned) in five innings.
Trivino has struggled this year as well. He has a 1-6 record and a 6.47 ERA in 39 appearances.
The Yankees will be hoping that a change of scenery helps him as he'll get to play on a World Series contender.
