Yankees Acquire Javier Vasquez, Trade Melky Cabrera

ESPN.comreports right-handed pitcher Javier Vazquez will be making a return to the Yankees, being traded from the Atlanta Braves for outfielder Melky Cabrera as part of a five-player trade. Vasquez pitched for the Bombers in 2004.

Relief pitcher Boone Logan also joined the Yankees, while reliever Mike Dunn and minor-league pitcher Arodys Vizcaino moved to Atlanta, the Yankees said in a news release. New York also sent an undisclosed amount of cash to the Braves. Ironically, this is the second time that Logan has been traded with Vasquez to another club, as he was involved in the 2008 trade that brought Vasquez to the Braves.
