Yankees acquired RHP Kirby Yates from the Indians in exchange for cash considerations.
Yates was designated for assignment earlier this week after the Indians' signing of Mike Napoli became official. It will be the third team he's been on since Thanksgiving, as he was previously claimed off waivers by the Tribe from the Rays. The 28-year-old reliever holds a career 5.27 ERA at the big league level, but he's struck out 63 over 56 1/3 innings and also boasted gaudy strikeout totals in the minors. The problem is that Yates is a flyball pitcher, which isn't a good fit at Yankee Stadium. Jan 8 - 2:33 PM
