Yankees | Add Michael Pineda to mix

The New York Yankees traded for SP Michael Pineda and P Jose Campos Friday, Jan. 13. They sent C Jesus Montero and P Hector Noesi to the Seattle Mariners for the two pitchers, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda joins a rotation which includes CC Sabathia, the newly-signed Hiroki Kuroda, A.J. Burnett, Freddy Garcia, Ivan Nova and Phil Hughes. Pineda will likely slot second or third in the rotation, with Garcia, Hughes and Burnett fighting for the final spot in manager Joe Girardi's rotation. Pineda had a fine 3.74 ERA in 2011, but he didn't get many wins with the lowly Mariners. With plenty of run support, he has 15-17 win potential in the Bronx.
