Yankees acquire 1B/DH Kendrys Morales in trade with Oakland A's

Despite opening the season with a $203 million payroll, the Yankees have weathered the storm of an incredible amount of injuries to star players to a 24-16 record, sitting just a half-game out of the AL East lead.

Oakland Athletics pinch runner Cliff Pennington is tagged out by San Francisco Giants second baseman Breyvic Valera attempting to steal second base during the seventh inning at Scottsdale Stadium.
