    Yankees Trade for Dean Anna

    The Yankees have traded for minor league infielder Dean Anna.

    In 2013 Dean hit .331, 9 Home Runs, .892 OPS, .410 OBP, with 38 doubles, 90 R, 73 RBI, 61 walks and 65 strikeouts in 583 PA for Triple-A Tucson.

    In 132 games Dean Anna saw time at second base, shortstop, third base and in left field.

    In six minor league seasons. Dean Anna owns a .286 Batting average, 40 Home Runs, .386 OBP, .815 OPS, with 277 walks, and 294 Strikeouts. He is 26 years old.

    The Yankees gave up Ben Paullus. Paullus, a 24-year-old righty, had a 5.56 ERA in Class A.

    Wow his minor league numbers are really good. I'm surprised the Yankees got him for a guy who had a 5.56 ERA in Class A.

    What are your expectations for him? He did really well in AAA.

    This was discussed in the off season thread.


    He's 26 and has been a life time minor leaguer in the padres system his entire career. The only reason they traded him was because they weren't going to put him on the 40 man roster and he would have been subjected to the rule 5 draft.

    He's a light hitting backup short stop / second baseman. He's played a little time at third and first base and corner outfielder positions all well.

    I tried going through the off-season thread for this but I didn't go through back enough pages. Sorry if this isn't thread worthy, feel free to move it! I thought by his minor league numbers, and giving up almost nothing for him it was thread-worthy.

    I think this guy has a legit case to make the roster because of his strong numbers in Triple-A, he just has to perform well in spring training.

    I completely agree. But depth is never a bad thing. With uncertainty @ 3rd, 2nd, and SS, having a bunch of options and depth can only help

    I didn't say it wasn't thread worthy; because it is thread worthy

    I was just pointing out that it was discussed a little bit in the thread(incase you were interested in reading peoples thoughts, because some posted it there; because you asked peoples opinions(I also input mine)

    With what happened last year on the left side of the infield depth is never a bad thing. I wouldn't get too terribly excited about Anna's numbers last season, he had an incredibly high .361 BABIP which is a bit of a fluky number compared to the rest of his career and for a guy that doesn't have incredible speed. The two previous years he carried a much more reasonably .303 BABIP resulting in a .271/.377/.393 slash line and a fluky low .268 BABIP which still resulted in a decent .253/.385/.384 slash line, though both of these lines came in AA. He seems to walk at a very good clip (10.5% or higher BB rate at every level save for a handful of games in Rookie ball back in 08) and hasn't struck out more than 15% of the time from 2010 on. Simply put, he seems to have a good handle on the strikezone, makes decent contact, and might have a tiny bit of pop. I have no idea about his defense other than he's played a variety of positions throughout his minor league career. I doubt he'll crack the opening day roster what with Jeter back and healthy, Ryan being resigned, Nunez and Nix all being on the roster and the chance that another infielder that can play either short and/or third may be brought in in free agency, but as a depth option he's not bad and probably better than guys like Chris Nelson and Luis Cruz who were brought in during last season's injury rash.
