BREAKING: Yanks, Bucs agree to Burnett deal, source tells @MLBNetwork insider @Ken_Rosenthal. Trade needs MLB approval due to $ involved.
Looks like a done deal.
More details as they become available.
@Ken Rosenthal: Deal needs #MLB approval. #Yankees will pay $20M of $33M left on Burnett’s contract, receive two low-level minor leaguers from #Pirates.
@Ken Rosenthal: Source: #Yankees, #Pirates in agreement on Burnett. Were working through one final detail today. Burnett will take physical Sunday. #MLB
Update: According to MLB Trade Rumors, the Yankees will be receiving Diego Moreno (25 Yr Old RHP) and Exicardo Cayones (20 Yr Old OF). I know nothing of their prospectness, but their names are awesome.
