MONTERO TRADED TO MARINERS


 The Yankees have acquired  right-handed pitchers Michael Pineda and 19-year-old Jose Campos (Single-A) from the Mariners in exchange for catching prospect Jesus Montero and pitcher Hector Noesi.

The 22-year-old Pineda was an All-Star in his rookie season of 2011. He went 9-10 with a 3.74 ERA in 171 innings of work for Seattle. He also struck out 173 with 55 walks.

Montero was the top prospect in the Yankees organization. He made his major league debut in 2011, appearing in 18 games. He hit four home runs and drove in 12 runs in 61 at-bats.

The move also opens up a competition for the back up catcher position between prospect Austin Romine and veteran Francisco Cervelli.

All I know is that this Pineda guy better be good or Cashman is toast!
