NEW YORK (AP) - Pitcher Javy Vazquez has been traded back to the New York Yankees by Atlanta in a swap that sent Melky Cabrera to the Braves on Tuesday.
New York also gets left-hander Boone Logan as part of the deal, and the Braves obtained pitching prospects Mike Dunn, a lefty, and right-hander Arodys Vizcaino, and about $500,000.
Vazquez spent 2004 with the Yankees, going 14-10 and making his only All-Star team. His first stint in New York ended miserably, when he relieved Kevin Brown trailing 2-0 in Game 7 of the AL championship series against Boston and allowed a first-pitch grand slam to Damon.
Cabrera had been the Yankees' starting center fielder for most of the last three seasons. He hit .274 with 13 homers and 68 RBIs last season.
