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.
Peralta is 2-1 this season with two saves and a 5.40 ERA in 8 1/3 innings pitched over 10 appearances in 2021.
During the COVID-19-shortened 2020 season, Peralta was 1-1 with a 3.29 ERA in 25 relief outings. During that season, left-handed batters were just 7-for-41 (.171) against Peralta.
Peralta has a 4.72 ERA over 220 career appearances.
He joins the Yankees bullpen as the third left-handed relief pitcher.
