Gaudin Traded To Yankees

NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Yankees have acquired pitcher Chad

Gaudin from the San Diego Padres for a player to be named.

The Yankees announced the trade during Thursday night’s game

against Boston.



The 26-year-old right-hander is 4-10 with a 5.13 ERA in 20 games

for the Padres, including 19 starts.

Gaudin did especially well in late July, giving up three earned

runs or less in five straight starts.

He could fill a couple of roles for the Yankees, either in long

relief or as the No. 5 starter. Sergio Mitre has been shaky since

becoming the fifth starter after the All-Star break.

Gaudin is 32-35 lifetime with two saves and a 4.58 ERA with

Tampa Bay, Toronto, Oakland, the Chicago Cubs and San Diego since
