Here’s the announcement from the Yankees. Juan Miranda obviously never found much of a role with the Yankees, and he will be out of options next year. I don’t know much of anything about Scott Allen…
The New York Yankees today acquired minor league right-handed pitcher Scott Allen from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for first baseman Juan Miranda.
Allen, 19, went 4-4 with a 4.73 ERA in 16 starts with Single-A South Bend in 2010, striking out 79 batters in 78.0 innings pitched with just 22 walks. He made his professional debut with short-season Single-A Missoula in 2009, going 1-0 with a 0.51 ERA in 12 relief appearances (17.2IP, 1ER). Allen was originally selected by the Diamondbacks in the 11th round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft from Lyman High School (Fla.).
Miranda, 27, batted .219 (14-for-64) with three home runs and 10 RBI in 33 games with the Yankees in 2010. In 46 career Major League games over three seasons with the Yankees (2008-10), he has a .253 (21-for-83) batting average with four home runs and 14 RBI. Miranda is one of 15 Cuban-born players to appear in a game for the Yankees. He was originally signed by the Yankees as a non-drafted free agent on December 22, 2006.
