Report: Yankees sending Stewart to Pirates
The Pirates are close to acquiring catcher Chris Stewart from the Yankees, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney.
The Yankees will receive cash considerations or a player to be named later, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman.
Stewart, who turns 32 in February, posted a .211/.293/.272 line in 109 games for the Yankees last season. He became expendable with New York’s signing of catcher Brian McCann in November.
