Also in the deal, the Yankees sent Frank German and $850,000 in cash considerations to the Sox. The Yankees save $9 million with this trade.
In 2019, Adam Ottavino signed a three-year, $27 million deal with the Yankees.
Ottavino opened his Yankee tenure with a stellar season, proving to be a crucial piece to the bullpen. He appeared in 73 games, pitching to a 6-5 record and an earned run average of 1.09. Ottavino also struck out 88 batters in 66.1 innings.
2020 was a demanding year for Adam Ottavino. Players dropping like flies with injuries all around him and he didn’t perform. Ottavino’s ERA skyrocketed to 5.89 in just 24 appearances. He also blew three saves in all three opportunities.

General manager Brian Cashman has no choice but to sign or trade for a high leverage reliever.
