The Yankees have sent infielder Alberto Gonzalez to the Washington Nationals in exchange for Harrisburg reliever Jhonny Nunez.
Nunez had made five appearances for the Senators this year, posting no record with a 1.13 ERA. He last pitched on Tuesday, and the Thunder need someone to start on Saturday, so there’s speculation that he’ll get the nod. So much for all those big names.
As of last night, the Thunder were carrying 23 players, so they would not need to make an immediate roster move to accomodate Nunez.
However, with Kevin Russo very close to returning, Kevin Russo returned today, so at least one move would appear to be imminent.
Pete Abraham also reports that the Yankees have signed Victor Zambrano. Could he and/or Eric Milton appear in a Thunder jersey down the stretch?
