Dec 7 – First Move: Yanks Trade Bruney to Nationals

Winter Meetings Begin, Yanks Will Be as Active as They Need to Be

(Indianapolis, IN) – The Yanks celebrated Pearl Harbor day with just a mini-bomb:  RHP Brian Bruney has moved on with a trade to the Nats for a player to be named later.  The 27-year-old right-hander was 5-0 with a 3.92 ERA in 44 regular-season appearances but pitched just once for the Yankees from mid-April until mid-June because of a strained right elbow, an injury he blamed on time he spent warming up during an umpires’ video review.

He is 16-10 with 13 saves and a 4.27 ERA in 229 relief appearances and one start over six seasons.   Bruney had a $1.25 million salary this year and is eligible for arbitration.

There are likely to be more moves over the next few days.  Get Ready to comment!
