D'Backs, Yanks Swap Pitchers

The Arizona Diamondbacks sent Brandon McCarthy to the Yankees for Vidal Nuno.

The Diamondbacks save a bit of cash, and get a innings eater in return that is still under team control for two more years. Nuno should benefit from a change in scenery to the NL, while McCarthy may struggle at times due to a lackluster defense in New York, as he is a groundball pitcher that needs those guys to hold their end of the bargain. As always, buy low, sell high.

Hold onto McCarthy if you need him, but I'm liking a dynasty stash of Nuno.
