Getting traded is hard. Bags need to be packed, relationships shift and new friends must be made.
But that move is made a lot easier when you are a minor leaguer headed to MLB's most historic and valuable franchise. Dillon Tate, the No. 4 pick in the 2015 MLB Draft by the Rangers, was sent to the Yankees on Monday in a deadline deal for Carlos Beltran. Tate celebrated his move to New York with the Running Man Challenge.

Tate, 22, was 3-3 with a 5.12 ERA in 17 games (16 starts) for the Rangers' Single-A affiliate, the Hickory Crawdads. The Yankees are sending Tate to Single-A Charleston, where he will come out of the bullpen to fix mechanical issues.
Meanwhile, Dodgers prospect Alex Burgos was caught with this face on the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes' team bus after a trade to the A's (picture via Alex Burgos).

Until next year, MLB trade deadline.
