A.J. Burnett Trade: Yankees Will Receive Prospects Diego Moreno, Exicardo Cayones From Pirates, According To Report

The two prospects the New York Yankees will receive from the Pittsburgh Pirates as part of the A.J. Burnett trade are Diego Moreno and Exicardo Cayones, according to an MLB.com report.

The two teams still await MLB approval on the trade, which is required because of the money being exchanged in the deal. The Yankees have reportedly agreed to send Burnett to Pittsburgh in exchange for the two prospects, with the Pirates assuming $13 million of the $33 million left on the two years of Burnett's contract.

Neither of the prospects is considered a great fetch. Moreno is a 25-year old reliever who was 2-4 with a 3.63 ERA last season in Single-A and Double-A. Cayones is a 20-year old outfielder who batted .228 with zero home runs and 12 RBI during 2011 in 114 at-bats split between rookie ball and Single-A.
