Quick hit: Vernon Wells is officially a Yankee

Of course, his being on the BP schedule, being issued a number and being penciled into the lineup was an indication that the deal had been finalized but the Yankees decided to make it official with a statement anyway:

“The New York Yankees today announced they acquired three-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove Award-winning outfielder Vernon Wells along with cash considerations from the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for minor league outfielder Exicardo Cayones and minor league left-handed pitcher Kramer Sneed.”

Farewell, Exicardo and Kramer! And welcome to the Bronx, well Tampa for now, Vernon!
