Yankees acquire RHP Miguel Castro in trade with Mets

The Yankees made another trade on Sunday.

The team acquired right-hander Miguel Castro from the Mets in exchange for left-hander Joely Rodríguez.

Castro gives the Yankees another late-inning bullpen option alongside Aroldis Chapman, Jonathan Loaisiga, and Chad Green.

The 27-year-old appeared in 69 games for the Mets last season, posting a 3.45 ERA and 9.9 K/9 in 70 1/3 innings.

Castro has been extremely effective against right-handed batters, limiting them to a .676 OPS throughout his Major League career.

This is a very rare trade as it was just the 16th trade between the two teams in their histories.
