Not the blockbuster you’ve been hoping for, I’m sure, but from Tyler Kepner’s Twitter page, we learn that the Yankees have traded for right-hander Jason Hirsh of the Colorado Rockies. Kepner notes that the trade is for “depth at AAA.” Hirsh, 27 (and 6′ 8”), was actually a good pitcher with Houston before joining the Rockies, so maybe the change in scenery (i.e., altitude) will help him regain his form. Bryan Hoch says that Hirsh was traded for a PTBNL (player to be named later) and has been assigned to Scranton.
Also, Marc Carig tweets that Brett Tomko has been released.
