Trade becomes Official, other notes

  • Michael Pineda is now a New York Yankee and Jesus Montero is a Seattle Mariner. The trade became official today. Pineda held a conference call and stressed that he was speechless and is totally looking forward to pitching with CC Sabathia and playing with the likes of Jeter and A-Rod.
  • Montero said he was "shocked" about the trade because he thought the Yankees would have given him a legitimate chance to prove himself in the big leagues.
  • Cashman stated that he doesn't see Hughes as a reliever. He is more comfortable with him being a starter.
  • Also from Cashman, he says that free agent DH's are "secondary" in his search right now. He would prefer to trade an arm for a bat that can make a significant impact. 
  • Brett Gardner avoided arbitration this weekend, settling on a one-year contract worth $2.8 million.
