After the acquisition of Joey Gallo on Wednesday, the New York Yankees added another strong left-handed striker with their hands on Anthony Risso, the first captain of the Chicago Cups.
In response, the Yankees gave up two hopes: outfielder Kevin Alcondara and right-handed pitcher Alexander Wiscino. The Cubs agreed to pay Risso’s full salary.

Rizo, annoyed by a back injury at the start of this season, hit 248 in 2021 with 14 homers and 40 RBIs. He has a good goal attendance rate.346.
The 31-year-old has been shining with cubs since 2012. He helped the club win the World Series in 2016.
A star player from 2014 to 2016, Risso did not play against the Reds on Thursday.
He pockets $ 16.5 million this year and could become a free agent after the season.
