Brian Bruney Traded
Brian Bruney has been traded to the Washington nationals for a player to be named later. Updates to come.
UPDATE: 4:50 PM: Sorry for the late update, I was working when I heard the news. If Mark Feinsand's report is true, and the Yankees get the first pick overall in the Rule 5 Draft, that is one heck of a deal. Getting rid of an arbitration pitcher that would have rotted in the back of the bullpen for a potential MLB ready prospect...nice deal in my opinion even if it is just a player to be named later and NOT the rule 5 pick.
UPDATE: 5:25 PM: Mark Feinsand confirms it. Great pickup considering the Yankees could have just let Bruney become a free agent.
