The Yankees have traded RHP Scott Proctor to the Dodgers for IF Wilson Betemit.
But unless something changes in the next few hours, they won’t be getting Eric Gagne. Brian Cashman is holding on to Alan Horne and the rest of his upper-level prospects. Boston is reportedly willing to trade OF David Murphy and LHP Kason Gabbard.
The Cubs also are involved. If financial matters can be worked out, Gagne could end up in Boston or Chicago.
It also sounds like Edwar Ramirez could be on the way back at the expense of Brian Bruney. If not today, then soon.
