Austin Kearns: Austin Kearns: Traded to the Yankees

Posted on July 30, 2010 at 6:47 PM

NEWS UPDATE

The Yankees are on the verge of completing a trade that would send Kearns to New York, Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman reports. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says the deal is done.

ROTOWIRE FANTASY ANALYSIS

Kearns was removed from Friday's game without explanation, so it looks like this one is going through. Bench depth has been a weak spot for the Yankees all year, so Kearns should help in that regard, in addition to serving as a capable fill-in whenever one of the outfielders gets a day off. He'll likely get some starts against lefties in place of either Brett Gardner or Curtis Granderson.
