The Pittsburgh Pirates have traded right-handed pitcher JT Brubaker to the New York Yankees in exchange for a player to be named later. The Pirates are also sending international bonus pool money to New York.

Brubaker is currently on the 60-day injured list as he recovers from last year’s Tommy John surgery. He’s expected back sometime around midseason.

The Pirates originally drafted Brubaker in the sixth round of the 2015 draft out of the University of Akron.
