The Yankees have agreed on a deal to buy Al Leiter from the Marlins, Newsday reports.
MLB.com is still saying another player is involved in the deal, but according to Newsday, it's a cash transaction, with the Yankees sending about $250,000 to Florida and paying about $150,000 of what the left-handed is still owed this season. The deal is expected to become official today, allowing the Yankees to start Leiter tomorrow against the Red Sox.
Thank god someone can pitch on Sunday now.
I can't say I'm not relieved. Guess we'll see what he can do, we know he can pitch in the NY spotlight.
It's pretty cool they were able to just go out and get a pitcher for a few hundred grand like that, even if he's a dud.
