This prospect was once one of the hottest hitters in New York's farm system, before he was traded away in 2021

Former Yankees prospect Hoy Park was traded from the Pirates to the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Park, 26, was designated for assignment by Pittsburgh earlier in the week. Boston sent minor league left-hander Inmer Lobo to Pittsburgh in the deal.

The infielder's tenure within the Yankees farm system ended ahead of the 2021 trade deadline. The lefty-swinging prospect was having an unbelievable season in Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, making a case for a role with the big-league club that summer. Suddenly, Park was included in a trade with the Pirates for a right-hander named Clay Holmes, a pitcher that had some potential but hadn't panned out in Pittsburgh.

Yankees give notable update on Aaron Judge contract talks

  Yankees give notable update on Aaron Judge contract talks Aaron Judge was officially named AL MVP on Thursday, as was widely expected. That added some extra pressure for the New York Yankees, who are trying to keep the star outfielder from departing as a free agent. © Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports New York Yankees are looking to re-sign right fielder Aaron Judge (99). Yankees general manager Brian Cashman confirmed Thursday that the Yankees have made an updated contract offer to Judge. Cashman added that there is a sense of urgency on the team’s part to put its best offer forward.

It's safe to say that trade worked out in New York's favor. Park went on to appear in only 67 games with the Pirates, hitting .202 with a .641 OPS. In 2022, Park played in just 23 games with Pittsburgh, slashing .216/.276/.373 with two home runs, six RBI and seven runs scored.

Park made just one appearance in a Yankees uniform before he was traded away, striking out at Yankee Stadium in his MLB debut on July 16 against, you guessed it, the Red Sox.

Meanwhile, Holmes blossomed in pinstripes, transforming into an All-Star closer. The right-hander didn't end the 2022 season on a high note, regressing and missing time due to injury, but he was unhittable in the first half, playing a key role during New York's historic start to the campaign.

Barring any major moves within the bullpen this offseason, Holmes will pick up where he left off as New York's closer in 2023. The righty finished his first full season with the Yankees with a 2.54 ERA, recording the first 20 saves of his career.

Ex-MVP joins list of free-agent outfielders being pursued by Yankees

  Ex-MVP joins list of free-agent outfielders being pursued by Yankees The New York Yankees want Aaron Judge back. You could even say the Yankees need Judge back. But even if Judge decides to run it back in the Bronx, New York still needs to find another outfielder before next season. The New York Post’s Jon Heyman reports the Yankees “remain in touch” with “Andrew Benintendi, on-base machine Masataka Yoshida, former Met Michael Conforto and newly free Cody Bellinger.” Heyman also reports the Yankees have been “in contact with Brandon Nimmo, too, but he’s expensive enough that he’d likely only be in play if Judge were to leave.

The other prospect Pittsburgh acquired in the Holmes trade is shortstop Diego Castillo. Castillo played 96 games for the Pirates in 2022, hitting .206/.251/.382.

Yankees’ updated contract offer to Aaron Judge would make him highest-paid position player .
The numbers never lie. And the ones reported Wednesday by ESPN’s Jeff Passan indicate the New York Yankees are serious about re-signing Aaron Judge. Earlier this month, general manager Brian Cashman said the club had already made an updated contract offer to the American League MVP. But unlike the spring, when Cashman went public with the team’s initial seven-year, $213.5 million pitch, the general manager didn’t spill the beans on the new proposal.
