Yankees acquire Minor Leaguer Guzman

BALTIMORE -- While the Yankees and Orioles played on the field Monday night, the two organizations completed a smaller piece of business behind the scenes.

The Yankees acquired Minor League outfielder Freddy Guzman from Triple-A Norfolk in Baltimore's system in exchange for a player to be named later or future cash considerations.

Guzman will be assigned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the Yankees said.

In 95 combined games with Triple-A Tacoma, Pawtucket and Norfolk this season, Guzman batted .218 (72-for-329) with nine doubles, four triples, two home runs, 16 RBIs and 38 stolen bases.

He appeared in the Majors with the Padres in 2004 and the Rangers in '06 and '07.
