The Yankees now have the enviable problem of having 7 legitimate starting pitchers competing for 5 spots. CC Sabathia, Ivan Nova, and the two new acquisitions would appear to be the logical 1-4 starters which means now A.J. Burnett, Freddy Garcia and Phil Hughes will battle it out for the number 5 spot. Not a bad problem to have.

The Yankees also received 19 year old Venezuelan pitching prospect Jose Campos in the deal. Campos started 14 games last year in the Short-Season Northwest League and was 5-5 with a 2.32 ERA. He struck out 85 hitters in 81 1/3 innings.
