The Braves get their lefty and a venerable super sub. The Cubs get an interesting catching prospect.
Shortly after acquiring Stephen Drew and Martin Prado in separate trades this afternoon the Yankees announced that starting second baseman Brian Roberts has been designated for assignment.
All month the assumption has been that the Twins would either sign Kurt Suzuki to a contract extension or trade the 30-year-old impending free agent in the middle of his career-year.
A super sub at heart who can and will be used at multiple positions by the Yankees.
