Quick hit: Yanks trade Jose Pirela to the Padres

Some hot stove news!

Ronald Herrera is a right handed pitcher who made it to Double A last season so the deal opens up a spot on the 40-man roster. 20-year-old Herrera threw 43 2/3 innings for the San Antonio Missions. He gave up 48 hits, walked 14 and struck out 35.

Jose Pirela, who can play second base and the outfield, played in 37 games last year for the Yankees and batted .230/.247/.311/.558 in 78 plate appearances.
