Yankees trade Luis Cessa, Justin Wilson to Reds
The New York Yankees have traded relievers Luis Cessa and Justin Wilson to the Cincinnati Reds for a player to be named.
The move could signal the Yankees are pursuing a big addition to their bullpen and were looking to create room. The deal was announced hours after New York won 4-3 at Tampa Bay, and Cincinnati finished off a 7-4 road victory over the Chicago Cubs.
The Yankees also made a bullpen move Monday, acquiring reliever Clay Holmes from the Pittsburgh Pirates for minor league infielders Hoy Park and Diego Castillo.
New York is nine games behind AL East-leading Boston and seven back of the second-place Rays, but much closer in the hunt for the second AL wild card.
