Eastern deadline, shipped first baseman and outfielder Garrett Cooper and left-handed pitcher Caleb Smith to Miami in exchange for right-handed pitcher Michael King and 2017-18 global signing bonus pool money.

Cooper, who made his big-league debut in 2017, had only joined the Yankees back in July - when he was traded from the Milwaukee Brewers for Tyler Webb. Cooper will maintain his rookie eligibility going into 2018. The move protects those players from next months Rule 5 Draft. He was 9-1 with a 2.39 ERA in 17 starts and one relief appearance at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre with 97 strikeouts and 28 walks. Over 18.2 innings in NY, he posted a 7.71 ERA, as he uncharacteristically struggled with control. With his versatility, he could wind up in the bullpen or the rotation.

King is a 22-year-old from Rochester who went to Boston College. King has been rather susceptible to the long ball over his career, due to his underwhelming stuff, which could cause him difficulty as he ascends through the Yankees' system.

The acquisition of Cooper could possibly suggest that the Marlins are more willing to trade incumbent first baseman Justin Bour in the near future, whether it be during the offseason, or over the summer.
