Happ has a US$13 million salary in the final season of a $36 million, three-year contract, and the Yankees are responsible for the remaining $4,543,011.
In all, it was a necessary move for NY to make and Happ was one of the best options on the trade block, even though he's a rental since he'll be a free agent after the season ends. Happ is the ideal choice to fix the Yankees pitching needs.
"We definitely satisfied some needs here", NY general manager Brian Cashman said. The lefty starter finished sixth in Cy Young voting in 2016, posting a 3.18 ERA and going 20-4.
The two-time All-Star reliever, acquired by the Yankees from Baltimore late Tuesday night for Dillon Tate and two other minor leaguers, retired all three Thunder batters he faced on three pitches. Certainly, the Yankees were asked to give up more in order for Toronto to part with Happ, being that both teams reside in the American League East division. Because they didn't, they have spent much of this season looking to acquire the best available pitchers in this trading marketplace. Rookie starters Domingo German (2-6, 5.68 ERA) and Jonathan Loaisiga (2-0, 3.00 ERA) both showed glimpses of promise, but can not be trusted.
J.A. Happ will be trying some iconic Yankees pinstripes on for size.

Top Republicans tamp down renegades that want to impeach Rod Rosenstein
It is highly unusual, if not unprecedented, for lawmakers to demand documents that are part of an ongoing criminal investigation. Rosenstein bristled when Jordan, the Ohio Republican, asked him why he was "keeping information from Congress".
Kawhi Leonard passes physical with Toronto Raptors
He will assemble the squad that is expected to compete in the 2019 World Cup in China and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. He appeared in a photo with Raptors president Masai Ujiri and general manager Bobby Webster over the weekend.
A question that has been raised with this deal is why Toronto would ask for an infielder in return when the team has similar options on the roster already. The Yankees didn't necessarily need help at the back end of games, with their bullpen leading the major leagues with a 2.76 ERA even before Britton showed up.
The additions of Britton and Happ are not going to vault the Yankees past the Red Sox. Shuttled back and forth between the majors and Triple-A after getting treatments that addressed the issue, Drury had played in just 10 games for the Yankees since. He will make his presence felt in the postseason, but there is only so much he can do in the regular season.
One thing working against the Blue Jays here is Stroman's value isn't particularly high.
McKinney, a first rounder of the A's in 2013, was included as a throw-in in larger trades that sent him first to the Cubs and then to the Yankees in the Aroldis Chapman deal in 2016. There, the 23 year old batted just.230, but displayed some power, hitting 13 homers while driving in 32 runs in 54 games.
McKinney, 23, made his Major League debut with the Yankees in 2018, going 1-for-4 in two games before being placed on the disabled list for almost two months with a left shoulder sprain after colliding into the left field wall at Rogers Centre.
