Caleb Ferguson Breaks Silence on Social Media After Dodgers Trade Him To Yankees

The lefty reliever says his goodbye to Los Angeles and Dodger fans.

On Monday, the Los Angeles Dodgers made a substantial move to their bullpen when the organization decided to part ways with southpaw reliever Caleb Ferguson

The Dodgers traded Ferguson to the New York Yankees in exchange for two prospects.

On Tuesday, Ferguson broke his silence via Instagram, saying goodbye to Los Angeles and hello to New York. 

Thank you @dodgers organization for an unforgettable 5 years, stoked to be in NY and put on the Pinstripes

Ferguson was traded to New York for lefty reliever Matt Gage and pitching prospect Christian Zazueta Jr. 

Ferguson was a member of the Dodgers from 2018 to 2023. In those five seasons (he didn't play in 2021 as he recovered from Tommy John surgery), he went 18-9 with a 3.43 ERA, 247 strikeouts, and a 1.29 WHIP in 207.1 innings and 201 games. 

Ferguson will work with fellow former Dodger Victor Gonzalez as the left-handed relievers in the Yankees' bullpen.

Ferguson was a member of the 2020 World Series champion Dodgers team. While he didn't appear in the 2020 postseason, he's been dominant in his playoff career, making eight scoreless appearances across 5.1 innings pitched in 2018 and 2023.

Ferguson and the Yankees will welcome the Dodgers into Yankee Stadium from June 7-9 for a reunion between the two sides.
