Alex Verdugo was meant to be the crown jewel return in the trade that sent Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Verdugo spent four years with the Red Sox, and at points, looked like a solid hitter. But he never came close to justifying the trade for Betts. In exchange for the outfielder, the Yankees sent back three minor league pitchers: Richard Fitts, Greg Weissert, and Nicholas Judice. Only Weissert has made his major league debut, serving 29 games of relief over two years.

Earlier this year, the Bronx Bombers sent an outfielder — Greg Allen — to Beantown in exchange for minor leaguer Diego Hernandez.

Allen had already spent a few months in the Yankees system during 2021, sent there by the Padres in the James Reeves trade before being DFA’d that summer. Two years later, he found his way to their Triple-A team. New York, desperate for outfield help, acquired Allen for a minor league pitcher to replace Aaron Hicks in the lineup. Allen made it three weeks before suffering a right hip flexor strain. A month after recovering from the injury, the Yankees DFA’d him again.

In Allen’s combined two Yankee tenures, he made just 60 plate appearances and posted a .250 batting average, one home run, three RBIs, and eight stolen bases.
