Breaking News: Yanks Complete Trade For Vazquez
Vazquez, 26 years old, was 13-12 last season with a 3.24 ERA in 230 2/3 innings. He also struck out 241 batters while walking just 57. For his career, Vazquez is 64-68 with a 4.16 ERA, but he is one of the most promising young starters in the major leagues.
Johnson was the Yankees top prospect before breaking into the majors full-time in 2002. Last season, he batted .284 with 14 homeruns and 47 RBI. He also posted a .422 on-base percentage, a rare attribute for a player his age. Rivera, another top-flight Yankee prospect but one that hasn't proven himself at the major league level yet, hit .266 with seven homers and 26 RBI in 173 at bats for New York. Choate only pitched 3.2 innings last season, but he is 3-2 with a 4.50 ERA in 90 career major league innings. He will be a lefty specialist for Montreal.
