Yankees Acquire Kyle Haynes To Complete Chris Stewart Trade

The Yankees have acquired right-hander Kyle Haynes from the Pirates to complete the Chris Stewart trade, tweets Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Haynes, 22, spent last season in Class-A where he posted a 2.38 ERA with 9.2 K/9 and 3.9 BB/9 in 83 1/3 innings of work. He began the season as a reliever but switched to the rotation for his final eight appearances and posted an impressive 1.93 ERA with 39 strikeouts and 18 walks in 42 innings. Though his numbers are solid, Haynes didn't crack Baseball America's list of Top 30 Pirates prospects or MLB.com's Top 20 Pirates prospects list.
