Minor league talent 19-year old Jose Campos

The Yankees acquired 22-year old phenom P Michael Pineda (and pitching prospect Jose Campos) from the Mariners and signed free-agent Hiroki Kuroda to a one-year deal worth $10 Million on Friday! The Yankees did have to part ways with new prospect DH Jesus Montero and pitcher Hector Noesi in the trade! Pineda is top young pitching talent whose fastball averages 95mph and had 173 K’s in 171 innings pitched last season! Pineda salary was only $415K last year as a rookie, so he will be quite affordable for the Yankees! The new Yankees pitching staff: C.C. Sabathia, Pineda, Ivan Nova, and Kuroda! #Future is looking good for the Yankees!
