Yankees trade outfielder Mike Tauchman to San Francisco Giants for reliever Wandy Peralta

BALTIMORE — Minutes after he left the field at Camden Yards Tuesday, Mike Tauchman was no longer a Yankee. The struggling outfielder was dealt to the Giants for left-handed reliever Wandy Peralta, a Giants source confirmed.

Peralta, 29, comes with a 5.40 ERA in 8.1 innings pitched over 10 appearances this season. He’s struck out eight and walked three.

“Wandy’s secondary stuff plays better than his fastball. He’s got velocity so that helps, but command of it just fair though,” a National League scout said of Peralta. “Little bit of a rubber arm.”

Mike Tauchman is no longer a Yankee after deal with Giants.

Over six Major League seasons with the Reds (2016-19) and Giants (2019-21), Peralta  has gone 9-9 with two saves and a 4.72 ERA  in 220 relief appearances.

In 2020, the left-handed pitcher went 1-1 with a 3.29 ERA in 25 relief outings, holding left-handed batters to a .171 batting average against with 12 Ks. He struck out at least one batter in 19 of his 25 games, averaging 8.23 strikeouts per 9.0 innings.

The Giants have been high on Tauchman since this winter, talking to the Yankees several times about this deal.

“The price finally fell on (Tauchman),” a Giants source said.

Tauchman’s stock had skyrocketed in 2019, when he got a chance to play regularly with the Yankees. He slashed .277/361/.504 with a career-high 13 homers. That stock sunk a little after a terrible 2020 and he became expendable this year with a slow start and a crowded outfield.
