Yankees acquiring RHP JT Brubaker from Pirates for player to be named later

The Yankees are trading for right-hander JT Brubaker from the Pittsburgh Pirates.

He is currently on the 60-day IL recovering from Tommy John surgery he received in April of last year. New York is sending over a player to be named later to Pittsburgh.

Brubaker has pitched in the majors for three seasons beginning in 2020, but missed all of 2023 and is targeting a return around the All-Star break this season.

The right-hander has a career 9-28 record to go along with a 4.99 ERA (1.38 WHIP) in 63 games (61 starts).
