NEW YORK — The trade deadline has come and gone, and the Yankees are most likely an improved team. The question is how much.

They have a better starting rotation with Frankie Montas in, Jordan Montgomery out. They have a better bullpen with Scott Effross and Lou Trivino. Their lineup is better with Andrew Benintendi, They’ll have more team speed and a new defensive outfielder whiz when Harrison Bader is over his injury. And they did everybody a favor trading Joey Gallo for a minor leaguer.
