New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman had a very busy month of July.
The 2014 non-waiver trade deadline has come and gone. The Yankees weren't the talk of the deadline—the Boston Red Sox were, however—but Cashman made some very good moves to bolster his roster and prepare his squad for the stretch run.
Cashman made two trades on Thursday and five others during the month of July. High profile or not, most of the moves he made have paid dividends already.
We won't be able to dish out final grades for these moves until the season ends. That said, we'll give grades to how things have shaken out so far.
Those players who were acquired earlier in the month have been given grades based on their performances in pinstripes so far. Those who were acquired on Thursday have been graded based on the packages it took to get them.
Let's get started.
