 CHICAGO (AP) - The New York Yankees have acquired minor league infielder Brent Lillibridge from the Chicago Cubs on Friday for a player to be named or cash.
Lillibridge is one of several backup infielders acquired by the Yankees this season to help fill in for their injured All-Stars. The trade Friday is the second deal between New York and Chicago this year.
The Yankees acquired Alberto Gonzalez from the Cubs in May, and he spent a week with the team before being demoted. Gonzalez was recalled from Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre earlier Friday when Reid Brignac was designated for assignment.
Lillibridge will report to Scranton.
Lillibridge, who broke into the major leagues in 2008 with Atlanta, is going to his sixth team. The Cubs designated him for assignment after nine games in April and has been with Triple-A Iowa since.
