Yankees deal Mitre to Brewers, pick up Dickerson

And suddenly the Yankees’ pitching mix looks a little clearer. Sergio Mitre has been deleted, leaving Ivan Nova, Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon to be selected for two rotation slots and a long relief role.

Here is the official press release:
YANKEES ACQUIRE OUTFIELDER CHRIS DICKERSON
The New York Yankees today acquired outfielder Chris Dickerson from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for right-handed pitcher Sergio Mitre.
Dickerson, 28, has appeared in 173 career Major League games over three seasons with Cincinnati (2008-10) and Milwaukee (2010), compiling a .267 (121-for-454) career batting average with eight home runs and 35 RBI.  A left-handed batter and thrower, Dickerson has appeared at all three outfield positions during the course of his Major League career (73G in LF; 54G in CF; 24G in RF).
In 2010, he batted .206 (20-for-97) with no home runs and five RBI in 45 combined games at the Major League level. He played 20 games with Cincinnati before being traded to Milwaukee on August 9 for outfielder Jim Edmonds. He also appeared in 13 games with Triple-A Louisville, batting .442 (19-for-43) with five doubles, three home runs and 7 RBI.  A California native, Dickerson was selected by Cincinnati in the 16th round of the 2003 First-Year Player Draft.
Mitre, 30, was 0-3 with one save and a 3.33 ERA (54.0IP, 20ER) in 27 appearances (including three starts) with the Yankees in 2010. Signed by the Yankees as a free agent on November 16, 2008, Mitre went 3-6 with a 5.03 ERA (105.2IP, 59ER) in 39 games (including 12 starts) over two seasons with the club.
With this transaction, the Yankees’ 40-man roster remains at 39 players.
