NEW YORK (AP) - Pitcher Javy Vazquez has been traded back to the
New York Yankees by Atlanta in a swap that sent Melky Cabrera to
the Braves on Tuesday.
New York also gets left-hander Boone Logan as part of the deal,
and the Braves obtained pitching prospects Mike Dunn, a lefty, and
right-hander Arodys Vizcaino, and about $500,000.
Vazquez spent 2004 with the Yankees, going 14-10 and making his
only All-Star team. His first stint in New York ended miserably,
when he relieved Kevin Brown trailing 2-0 in Game 7 of the AL
championship series against Boston and allowed a first-pitch grand
slam to Damon.
Cabrera had been the Yankees' starting center fielder for most
of the last three seasons. He hit .274 with 13 homers and 68 RBIs
