Yankees, Pirates Working out Burnett Trade Details

The New York Yankees and Pittsburgh Pirates have somewhat of a conditional framework for the rumored A.J. Burnett trade but are still trying to work out final players and dollar amounts, according to Buster Olney. This is the strongest indication yet that the deal will happen in the next few days.

Joel Sherman notes that the Yankees will likely use any money saved (somewhere under $10 million according to previous rumors of how much the Pirates would take on) to pursue a left handed DH (like the rumored Ibanez signing).
