The Washington Post is reporting that the Yankees have traded RHP Tyler Clippard to the Nationals for right-handed reliever Jonathan Albaladejo.
He’s a big (6-5, 250) guy who made his debut in September and had a 1.88 ERA in 14.1 innings. Albaladejo is 25.
I called the Yankees to try and confirm this and have yet to receive an answer.
UPDATE, 12:50 p.m.: Pending physicals, a done deal. Seems like a good move for the Yankees. Clippard had fallen off their radar.
