Ronald Torreyes, who was designated for assignment when Kenta Maeda was signed, and Tyler Olson, who met the same fate the day Brandon Beachy returned to the Dodgers, have been traded to the New York Yankees for minor-league infielder/outfielder Rob Segedin and a player to be named later or cash considerations.
The 27-year-old Segedin had a .379 on-base percentage at Double-A Trenton last year and a .350 OBP in Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, slugging .426 combined. A right-handed hitter, he has played 265 career professional games at third base, 66 in right field, 48 at first base and 44 in left field.
According to the Bergen Record, Segedin earned his degree in 3 1/2 years, with a double major in finance and management from Tulane, the alma mater of his new boss, former Green Wave ballplayer Andrew Friedman.
