Source: Yankees will receive Moreno
By Andrew Marchand
No, not Omar.
. This is from a source with knowledge of the deal.
The trade is completed, pending the commissioner's office stamping its approval on the Yankees paying $13 million of Burnett's salary.
Moreno, 25, is 6-foot-1, 177-pound reliever. Of his four-year career, almost all of it has been spent in A-ball. He moved up to Double-A last year and posted 4.91 ERA in 11 innings.
Overall, though, his numbers are pretty good. He has a .2.41 ERA in 194 minor league innings. Apparently, his attitude has been in question in the past.
The Yankees will be receiving a second player from the Bucs, too, whose name is unknown right now.
