Yankees finalize Vernon Wells trade with Angels
In case you weren’t convinced by the fact that he has a locker in the Yankees clubhouse, held an 11-minute “welcome to the team” interview session and is in tonight’s lineup against the Astros, it’s now really, really official — Vernon Wells has been acquired by the Yankees from the Angels.
Here’s the breakdown from the Yankees’ press release, and there will be more to come later on yankees.com.
“The New York Yankees today announced they acquired three-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove Award-winning outfielder Vernon Wells along with cash considerations from the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for minor league outfielder Exircado Cayones and minor league left-handed pitcher Kramer Sneed.”
The Yankees said that a reciprocal 40-man roster move will be announced at a later time.
