Yankees Acquire Righty Reliever Nolte For Jones

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.

    JJ wasn’t going to even get a Triple-A shot with the Yankees, so this is good for him.

  2. Bronx Baseball Daily Says:

    He actually looks like a pretty good get. Especially considering the Yankees had already lost Jones in the rule 5 draft and didn’t have room for him anyways.
