The team acquired right-handed starting pitcher Frankie Montas and reliever Lou Trivino from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for left-handers Ken Waldichuk and J.P. Sears as well as right-hander Luis Medina and infielder Cooper Bowman.

Waldichuk was the Yankees’ No. 5 prospect, Medina No. 10, Sears No. 20, and Bowman No. 21, per MLB Pipeline.


Montas, 29, is under team control through next season. The right-hander has a 3.18 ERA in 19 starts (104 2/3 innings) this season.

Trivino, 30, is under team control through 2024. The right-hander has a 6.47 ERA over 32 innings this season but has eight saves since June 25. He pitched to a 3.18 ERA in 2021 and recorded 22 saves.

Earlier on Monday, the team acquired reliever Scott Effross from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for right-handed starting pitcher Hayden Wesneski.
