The Yankees are nearing a deal that would send top prospect Jesus Montero to the Seattle Mariners in return for pitcher Michael Pineda. Pineda was 3rd in rookie of the year voting last year after having an above average rookie season.Montero is the number 6 over all prospect and showed much potential in 18 games hitting 328 with 4 home runs and 12 RBI’s. Now that Montero is gone the Yankees have no full time DH.There are plenty of options in the free agent and trade markets the best of which is Prince Fielder,other options include Johnny Damon and Yoenis Cespedes.
