The Trade - June 23
Yankees acquire RHP Jay Witasick
San Diego Padres acquire IFDAngelo Jimenez
Did it help?
Witasick appeared in 32 games for the Yankees in 2001, going 3-0 with a 4.69 ERA. He imploded in the postseason, however. His worst game was in Game 6 of the World Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks, when he gave up nine runs in just 1.1 innings of work. The dismal performance was part of a lopsided 15-2 Arizona win, forcing a Game 7, which the Diamondbacks won in dramatic fashion. Jimenez became a journeyman infielder, who had a career average of .263 in eight seasons.
