this was all that they said:

Boone, Aaron, 3B New York Yankees

TRANSACTION 1:12 PM CST, 7/31/2003
The Reds traded 3B Aaron Boone to the Yankees for minor league P Brandon Claussen and cash.

Boone fills a major hole for the Yanks as Robin Ventura moves into a backup role. In Cincy, Boone was a very balanced performer, clubbing 18 HRs while knocking in 65, stole 15 bases and hit .273.

From WLWT.com

Aaron Boone Traded To Yankees
Reds Get 2 Pitchers, Cash
CINCINNATI -- As the clock ticked down to the trade deadline, the Cincinnati Reds traded the team's only All-Star to the New York Yankees.

Third-baseman Aaron Boone was traded for pitchers Brandon Claussen and Charlie Manning and an undisclosed amount of cash.

Boone, 30, has spent each of his seven Major League seasons with the Reds. He is hitting .273 with 18 HR, 65 RBI and 15 stolen bases in 106 games.

Claussen, 24, went 4-1 with a 2.48 ERA in 15 starts between New York's Class A affiliate in Tampa and its Class AAA team in Columbus. He made one start with the Yankees, on June 28 against the Mets at Shea Stadium.

In that start, Claussen allowed one earned run over 6.1 innings while striking out five en route to his first big league victory.

Drafted by the Yankees in the 34th round of the 1998 first-year player draft, Claussen is 36-29 with a 3.05 ERA in his 5 minor league seasons. In 2002, he was ranked by Baseball America as the third-best prospect in the Yankees organization.


Manning, 24, was New York's ninth-round selection in the June 2001 first-year player draft. This season at Class AA Trenton and Class A Tampa he combined to go 2-6 with a 5.12 ERA in 12 starts and 17 relief appearances.
