      Yankees' Kirby Yates: Traded to Yankees

      Yates was traded from the Indians to the Yankees on Friday for cash considerations. Yates was designated for assignment by the Indians on Friday less than two months after being claimed by the Indians in late November. The 28-year-old reliever struggled in the majors last season, posting a 7.97 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 20.1 innings, but will attempt to earn a bullpen spot at the Yankees' spring training, assuming he stays on the roster.

      Indians' Kirby Yates: Designated for assignment

      Yates was designated for assignment Tuesday, Paul Hoynes of reports. With the Indians making their signing of Mike Napoli official Tuesday, the team cleared a spot on the 40-man roster by designating Yates for assignment. Yates, who was acquired from the Rays in November, has made 57 major league relief appearances over the past two seasons. The splits between those two campaigns are dramatic, as he posted a 7.97 ERA in 20 outings last year after notching a 3.75 mark the previous season.

      Indians' Kirby Yates: Traded to Indians

      Yates was acquired from the Rays in exchange for cash considerations Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of reports. The 28-year-old was designated for assignment last Friday, so it's clear the Rays weren't looking to get much in return for their right-hander. Yates was hit around plenty in his 2015 stint with Tampa Bay -- in 20.1 innings, Yates recorded a 7.97 ERA and 1.48 WHIP -- but he could have a chance to rehabilitate his numbers with the Indians.
