Abreu Traded To Yankees

As many are aware at this point, Bobby Abreu has been pulled from Philadelphia’s lineup today against Anibal Sanchez in favor of Shane Victorino.  It appears that a trade is imminent.

UPDATE: ESPN’s Buster Olney reports the deal is tenatively done – Abreu and Lidle to the Yankees.  Jayson Stark is now indicating that 27 year-old lefty reliever Matt Smith may be part of the deal along with C.J. Henry.  Smith has a 2.08 ERA in 26 Triple A innings this season.
