    Yankees Acquire RHP Brandon McCarthy

    10:21am: The d’backs will be eating money in the deal, tweets espn’s buster olney. Mccarthy is owed the prorated portion of his $9mm contract, plus the $1mm assignment bonus he is set to earn after being traded.

    The prorated portion of mccarthy’s deal comes out to roughly $4.23mm, not counting the assignment bonus.

    10:15am: The yankees are in fact trading vidal nuno to arizona for mccarthy, tweets mark feinsand of the new york daily news.

    Nuno, 26, owns a 5.42 era with 6.9 k/9 and 3.0 bb/9 through 14 starts and three relief appearances this season. While mccarthy is on an expiring contract, nuno won’t be eligible for free agency until after the 2019 season.

    10:10am: The yankees have acquired brandon mccarthy from the d’backs, according to chris cotillo of mlbdailydish (on twitter). The two sides were discussing a deal involving vidal nuno last night, sources tell ken rosenthal of fox sports (on twitter), but it’s unclear if nuno is in fact in the trade.

    Mccarthy, 30, has a 5.01 era with 7.6 k/9 – a career best if it holds – and 1.6 bb/9 through 18 starts this season. While the 5+ era isn’t particularly attractive, advanced metrics such as mccarthy’s 2.89 xfip indicate that he has been much better than that would indicate.

    Espn’s buster olney reported late last month that mccarthy would earn a $1mm assignment bonus if he was traded. Olney added that the d’backs would likely have to pick up the tab on that sum.

    He's an upgrade over Nuno.

    It's a slam dunk based on the fact nuno is gone

    Agree with yankeefan. McCarthy will be the 3rd or 4th best pitcher on this team as of right now and he will be better than Phelps.

    McCarthy has a solid track record in the past atleast. The yanks aren't paying anything and nuno is gone. A slam dunk win. Now to replace Whitley

    McCarthy certainly offers a lot more upside than Nuno. Good trade.

    thats a slam dunk for the Yanks, its an immediate upgrade over at least 2 of the pitchers we currently have in the rotation and the only thing we gave up is a guy we all wanted gone... plus we still have alll our prospects left to make another deal or 2 if/when we need to.... huge win

    I think I mentioned that the Yanks could grab McCarthy for cheap awhile back due to the Diamondbacks stinking it up and his bloated ERA.

    Nuno had his shot and he stunk while McCarthy is at least an upgrade.

    McCarthy has been a better pitcher in the AL. 4.02 ERA in AL, 4.75 in NL. His best years were in Oakland but it seems he's more comfortable in the AL.
