Yankees Deal Tauchman to Giants, Acquire Lefty Peralta

Mike Tauchman’s time as a Yankee has come to an end. The Yankees traded Tuachman on Tuesday to the San Francisco Giants for left-handed pitcher Wandy Peralta and a player to be named later.

Tauchman was initially acquired by the Yankees in 2019 in the dealt that sent Phillip Diehl to the Colorado Rockies.

During his three years as a Yankee, Tauchman batted .266, with a .353 OBP, .444 SLG, and a .798 OPS. He hit 25 doubles, one triple, 13 home runs, and acquired 61 RBI’s, 65 runs scored, and 14 stolen bases.

2019 was the breakout season for Tauchman as a Yankee. He hit .277, with 13 home runs and 47 RBI’s.

Wandy Peralta, a 29-year old MLB veteran, was signed by the DSL Reds in 2010. He has since spent time with the Cincinnati Reds and most recently the San Francisco Giants from 2019-2021.
