The Yankees made a nice move. They traded for Eric Young Jr.
NJ.com has the story:
"The Yankees acquired outfielder Eric Young Jr. from the Brewers on Wednesday. They sent Milwaukee cash, which owner Hal Steinbrenner has plenty of.
Here's what you need to know about the acquisition of Young:
WHEN: He'll come up Friday. Rosters expand Thursday, but that's an off day for the Yankees.
RUN! Young will serve as the team's pinch runner extraordinaire.
HISTORY: In 179 attempts, Young has 144 steals.
That's a (Larry David voice) pretty, pretty, pretty good success rate.
He led the National League in steals with 46 in 2013. But back then he
was 28. He's 31 now. So he's probably lost a step or two but he's still
NJ.com's Brendan Kuty has some good stuff here, and I'm kind of psyched to see how it all works out with Young. Kind of reminds me of a Dave Roberts during his playing days.
Anyway, I'm happy about this. Welcome aboard, Junior.
