I have to believe the Yankees simply could not say no to someone named Exicardo…’s Jonathan Mayo reports that the second Pirates prospect in the A.J. Burnett deal is believed to be outfielder Exicardo Cayones. Still just 20 years old, Cayones has yet to play full-season ball. He’s a career .272/.372/.380 hitter in the lowest levels of the minors. He’s spent most of his time in left field, with a few appearances in center and right. He was apparently the most expensive Latin American amateur ever signed by the Pirates.

The only thing that stands out to me is the on-base percentage. Obviously he’s pretty young and raw.
