Former Dodgers outfielder Trayce Thompson has found a new home after being placed on waivers by the Boys in Blue.
The Yankees announced on Tuesday that they had acquired Thompson off waivers.
Roster Moves: Prior to today’s game, the Yankees acquired OF Trayce Thompson off waivers from Los Angeles-NL and transferred RHP Ben Heller to the 60-day disabled list (right elbow bone spur).— Yankees PR Dept. (@YankeesPR) April 3, 2018
Thompson, 27, batted .207 with 14 home runs and 34 RBIs over the course of the past two seasons with the Dodgers. With a crowded outfield in 2018, there was simply no room for Thompson on the MLB roster.
