Jed Weisberger, who writes the Baselines pieces on the Thunder website and whose work can be found numerous other places, was kind enough to send an e-mail letting me know the Yankees have acquired RHP Charles Nolte in exchange for RHP Jason Jones.
This occured after Jones was offered back to the Yankees according to Rule 5 protocol.
Nolte, who is listed as the Twins sixth best righty reliever prospect by Baseball America, was 4-3, 2.05 at Beloit in 2008.
Jones was optioned to Triple-A Rochester after the trade.
