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.
