The Yankees had been talking to clubs about Mike Tauchman since at least spring training, and the San Francisco Giants were among the most interested clubs.

The Yanks finally found a return that interested them in Wandy Peralta, a 29-year-old left-handed reliever under control through the 2023 season, as well as a player to be named later.

Peralta is 2-1 with two saves and a 5.40 ERA in 10 appearances this year. In six seasons he is 9-9 with two saves and a 4.72 ERA in 220 relief appearances.

Here’s a rival evaluator on what the Yanks are getting:

“He throws strikes with 3 pitches. Good velocity but it doesn’t play quite to the gun. Secondary pitches are above average though and probably his best weapons. Pretty durable guy. Not dominant stuff but he’s a ML reliever.”

There you have it. The Yankees’ new bullpen arm.
