Righty McAllister completes deal for Kearns

|
NEW YORK -- The Yankees sent right-hander Zach McAllister to the Indians on Friday, as the player to be named later, completing the July 30 trade for outfielder Austin Kearns.

The 22-year-old McAllister was regarded as one of the Yankees' top pitching prospects coming into this campaign, earning selection last season as the club's Minor League Pitcher of the Year with Double-A Trenton and ranked as New York's fifth-best prospect by Baseball America.

McAllister had spent all of this year at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, going 8-10 with a 5.09 ERA in 24 starts, ranking 11th in the International League in innings pitched (132 2/3). He was a third-round selection in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft.

Kearns, 30, is batting .355 (11-for-31) with one homer and five RBIs in 11 games since joining New York.
