Happ is now a Yankee and Oh is a Rockie.  4 more prospects in the system now.

Via Oh: Forrest Wall (2B/CF) 22 years old in A+/AA 260/340/410 combined but just 206/289/359 in AA; Chad Spanberger 1B, 22 years old A ball 315/363/579;

Via Happ:Brandon Drury 3B/2B/etc. 25 years old, 176/263/275 as a Yankee, 292/403/444 in AA/AAA; Billy McKinney OF 1/4 in majors, 230/307/481 in 3 levels of the minors

These guys pre-2016 were top 100 prospects whose stars have fallen a bit.  Lots of talent, but how well that translates we will see.  Drury looks to be a replacement for Yangervis Solarte if he is traded as some think he might be.  McKinney is another part of the outfield mix.  Spanberger will be in the minors for at least another year, Wall will be interesting to watch.

A bit less that many hoped, but better than a sandwich pick this winter and the Jays might resign Happ anyways.  Oh was a scrap heap find in the winter (after the O's...oops Rangers cancelled a deal over health issues - the O's do that so often I guess I misremembered) so those are very positive trades.
