Yankees, Red Sox Quiet As Rest Of AL East Makes Moves At Deadline (Video)

While the Boston Red Sox remained mostly quiet at the MLB non-waiver trade deadline, the majority of the American League East was busy adding pieces for the stretch run.

The Toronto Blue Jays were one of those active teams, as they picked up Ben Revere, Mark Lowe, David Price and Troy Tulowitzki.

One team that didn’t make as many moves, though, was the New York Yankees. They picked up Dustin Ackley, but they didn’t add any pitching.

“I’m surprised about the Yankees that they didn’t get a pitcher or reliever,” The Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo said on “Red Sox First Pitch” before Friday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays. “I thought they were going to get one or the other or maybe both. That didn’t happen. All they got was Dustin Ackley, who is hitting .215.”
