... The Pittsburgh Pirates today traded outfielder Xavier Nady, and pitcher Damaso Marte to the New York Yankees today.

In return, the Pirates netted four prospects: right-hander Ross Ohlendorf, lefty Phil Coke, outfielder Jose Tabata and right-hander George Kontos. Ohlendorf is the only one of the four that has previous Major League experience.

Though the Pirates have confirmed that a deal has been made to send Marte and Nady elsewhere, general manager Neal Huntington would not confirm on Friday night that the Yankees were on the other side of the trade. Huntington said that medical evaluations will have to be completed on all the players involved before any announcement is official.
